European Health Insurance Card


I’ve just applied for mine on-line. Seemed to work!

This card is the successor to the E111.

Dr. Schar


We’ve just had a weekend in Ancona. Excellent!

We stayed at the Hotel Emilia. Not cheap, but very good value at ˆ190 a night. Large pool, big room, good food, superb views, lots of good art on the walls etc.

I said to the waiter on the first night, that I was a coeliac and he said that they always had gluten-free pasta. So I tried it at lunch and it was excellent. I thought at first they had made it themselves, but it was from Dr. Schar in Bolzano.

I now get this pasta on prescription. In fact, it's the only gluten-free item that I do.

Gluten Free Food in South Africa


When I went to South Africa a few years ago, I hadn’t been diagnosed, but found the food to be very good to a high standard and very affordable. A lot of good meat, like Springbok carpaccio!
