Do you need some information about travelling gluten free in Europe? I found the Coeliac Youth of Europe site, which although intended for young people (under 30), contains information that might be useful to all. You can find links to coeliac societies from many countries – not just European ones – and information about eating gluten free in different countries.
It’s too late to register for their summer camp this year, but it looks like they run a camp each year in a different country – this year it will be in Sweden. There are pictures of previous camps, in several different countries – looks like fun, and a good way to see something of a country without worries about finding gluten free food. The camps are for over 18s – but it might be something to think about in a few years, when our coeliac daughter is a bit bigger.
I wonder where they’re going next year?
I’ve written a book summarising what we’ve learnt over 20 years of dealing with the gluten free diet, and it might be just what you’re looking for. It packs the lessons we’ve learned into what I hope is a helpful and straightforward guidebook. It’s available on Amazon, as a paperback or for your Kindle…

I’d never heard of this… And it’s not yet too late for me. Thank you!
Hi Gavin – are you a bright young thing, then? Shame on me for assuming that a councillor would be older than me …
i don’t understand how can i enrol in this camp, and what’s the purpose, the payment, the contries that can participate, such things :) thank you
Hi Sidi – I’m glad you’re interested in these camps. I think the best thing to do would be to contact the Coeliac Youth of Europe. It looks as though they’re going to Germany this year – but the date for registration may be passed by now.
Do go and look (their site is here: http://cye.freehostia.com/) – there’s always next year!
