Today after a good night’s sleep and a lovely hotel breakfast we packed our luggage and dropped them off at our home for the next week, the Ama Kristina River Cruise Ship and took a cab into Lyon. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease years ago it is sometimes challenging when we travel to control both what I can eat and if the food is safe for me.

“As far as I can tell, the biggest side effect of a gluten sensitivity is that you actually become the number one symptom: a huge pain in the ass.” ~Cecelia Rivenbark

After we dropped off our luggage our cab took us across town to Les Gasteliers, which is a dedicated Gluten Free bakery. It’s a real French patisserie shop but entirely gluten-free. It was amazing.

There was a gluten-free cinnamon roll that called my name. Here is how it went.

There were limitless choices – it was like being in Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory, everything looked magically delicious.

“Where there is cake, there is hope. And there is always cake.” ~ Dean Koontz

We walked a couple of miles through the city to try to negate some of the calories of the delicious cinnamon rolls, then cabbed it back to the ship where we began the next part of our journey through France. We settled into our room and had a lovely dinner with friends with more adventures to come tomorrow.
