I think it looks amazing!  I would love to go visit!  I know it is closer to home than being far away…but at 1/3 of the price and all those pros…i think you should definitely go!  You can always book a another trip to another (farther away) location for your second honeymoon later on ๐Ÿ™‚

My best friend did a study abroad in Spain and spent a week in Majorca and she absolutely loved it! I think it would be great. If you’re really looking for a bigger trip, gluten free stuff is becoming much more available in the states, so you could probably find food you could eat at grocery stores here as well!

I think it looks lovely!  I also have many allergies and sensitivities, though thankfully I am not as allergic as you – I’m so sorry that you have to go through this!  I have a couple of questions: meat is always gluten-free, so are you talking about gluten-free seasoned meat or a meat market like a carniceria?  Do you go shopping at the farmer’s market?  At the one near me, they have food stands where they cook pizza, so that may not be a good idea for you, but have you researched whether cooking the gluten changes its molecular structure so that you are not reactive to it in the air?  Reason being, farmers markets have great produce.  

In terms of your honeymoon, I would say go somewhere that is fluent in English or, if your husband speaks it, Spanish, and he can do the purchases at the markets and you can cook them ๐Ÿ™‚  If you are that allergic, you may need your own gluten-free (or if you are only allergic to wheat, wheat-free) designated cookware, and packing all of that may be challenging.  I would say check with a Costco or AAA travel agent for logistics and with any other places you plan on going to.  Maybe you can have a deep-cleaning of the kitchen done before you get there for an extra fee.  I agree that doing an apartment where you can cook is a great idea, because Spanish cafes and restaurants have lots of wheat-containing foods.  It may be wise to contact celiac.org or http://www.worldallergy.org/ to find out if they can refer you to accommodations.  Costa Rica may be another place to consider because it’s beautiful and the staples there are chicken, rice, beans, etc. and they have lots of fruit stands.  Of course, there are also condos in Hawaii or the Keys that are English-speaking.  If you are set on Spain and you can make it work, fantastic!  I can’t wait to see the photos ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck to you, hugs!

Also – you may be able to schedule deliveries of produce from local farmers and butchers so that neither of you have to leave the apartment ๐Ÿ˜‰

I WANTED soooo badly to go to Spain or Italy for our honeymoon. Unfortunately, we lack money and “time”. I have a craptastic job that has no benefits, so no work = no pay. I can’t afford to lose more than a week of work. I would want to spend about 2 weeks there. It is beautiful and the food looks amazing! Anyway, you would have everything that you need to not suffer a major allergic attack, which would ruin your honeymoon. GO!!!! Please, put a pics when you do, so I can live vicariously through you, hahaha!

You could look at the more traditional South Pacific islands (i.e. Samoa & Tonga), where they don’t tend to eat much wheat-based foods, and fish is readily available. Starches like breadfruit, taro, sweet potato, etc. are abundant and served at every meal. And of course, there are many other reasons to visit these beautiful, deeply cultural islands . . .
