Island of Gran Canaria – Spain

Stepping off the unbearable and unbeatably priced RyanAir airplane (which offers a gluten free Tikka Masala meal btw),I hit a wall of heat and the “Kalyma” that had also just landed on Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. This little archipelago is geographically located along the African continent, but belongs to the country of Spain. Yellow clouds carrying sand over from Saharia blew a hot overcast wind with sprinklings of rain upon us all.

Go NAU! Positively yours, The Gluten Free Traveler Continue reading Northern Arizona University – Flagstaff, AZ

Split, the island of Hvar and ┼áibenik – Croatia

Upon meeting our couchsurfing host, Mladen, who turned out the be the best host in the entire world, I soon learned a very important saying in Croatian: “u picku materinu” which should be pronouned “U bitch ku materay nuu” Our host assured us it was a very common informal exclamation used with old buddies, people you haven’t seen in a while or during a heated game of cards. Let’s now reference the Urban Dictionaries definition of the phrase for a moment: 1. u picku materinu-“in your mothers pussy” You are mad at somebody or about something, if you are Serbian, … Continue reading Split, the island of Hvar and ┼áibenik – Croatia
