I know that mid August seems a bit late to launch a travel section – so apologies to all of you with children who are currently steaming on Mediterranean beaches. But for those of us who are lucky enough to be able to travel outside school holidays (we are currently planning on Puglia in late September) now is the moment when you are actually combing those travel books.
And, to be honest, I was also spurred on by the launch of a new travel site for allergic travellers by FFFood Awards judge, Emma Amoscato – and by a series of really great travel articles by Catherine Rose. So instead of scattering them all over the FoodsMatter site, I have brought them together in one section – Travel!
So – there is a section of general advice for travellers, which includes an article by Emma about their new site, two articles by Catherine (general tips and on airlines) and some other articles from the FM archives.
And I have divided the rest up into areas: UK and Ireland, Europe, Middle East, Far East etc. For now it includes some really great articles really dedicated to eating in foreign lands – for example, Catherine’s articles on both Barcelona and Japan!! (More to come from her too – Salzburg and New York I seem to remember were on her list…) But it also includes a number of travel pieces (many of my blogs) which do touch on food but often only peripherally.
However, we are now very much in the market for more good, freefrom-food related travel articles – from anywhere around the world! So if you have any good – or bad – experiences that you are up for sharing, please let me know.
Meanwhile – to see what we have on offer – get on your pony and ride over!!
