How Good are the Gluten Free Treats from Senza Gluten?

My Review of Senza Gluten Bakery

Being a person with Celiac Disease once we go gluten free it is very hard to find really good, tasty, satisfying treats. I use to eat a croissant everyday! How I miss those delicious, buttery, little guys. I’m always on the hunt for places that have a variety of gluten free baked goods, and I have to dig deeper to find the places that are exclusively a gluten free kitchen – where all they make is gluten free food. Senza Gluten is one of those places where regular wheat flour doesn’t even enter their place of business!

My Fascinating Experience in Goa, India as an American Woman

An American Woman in Goa, India

There’s just something about India that drew me in, the colors, the way the women wear their jewelry, the saris, how they dance, and it could have been the glamour and mystery of the Hindu religion. I always had India as a place I wanted to visit, and I very much admired the people of India. India is a country unlike any other. I feel lucky to have visited there, and to have visited with someone that was a local. I saw India for all it’s beauty and for all it’s prejudices. Here’s what it’s like for an American woman in Goa, India.

A Weekend in Cardiff, Wales

Visiting Cardiff, Wales!

I know it is the goal of many people to visit London, England one day. It’s sort of like the goal to one day visit NYC. You MUST go to NYC when you’re in the States, right? But there are more places in the USA than just New York City. As poor as an analogy as that is I felt extremely lucky to cross the pond to visit London, but came back a happier person because I visited Cardiff, Wales. I got to see a different side to the UK. I was able to breathe the best fresh smelling air I ever have, and I fell in love with the beauty of everything Cardiff.
