Traveling with Food Allergies Nov 30, 2009
I discovered I was allergic to shellfish a couple years ago, while on a cruise, and have since learned some information that makes so much sense. When traveling internationally, write the allergy and information down in that country's language so that communication in restaurants can be clear.

I feel very fortunate that my allergic reaction occurred on the cruise ship; I knew where to go in the emergency. But, if this had happened while in a foreign city (or even at Red Lobster at home), valuable time could have been compromised.

Good tip! I have to do this because I need to avoid foods with wheat in them.
