If you went to the University of Virginia, you’re most likely as in love with Charlottesville, Virginia as I am. We Wahoos can be a little snobby about “The University” and our favorite historical figure, Mr. Jefferson. (That’s right, he didn’t go by “President” just “Mr.”)
I give Charlottesville credit for a lot of things in my life: a great college education, my husband (who gave me my tour of UVA my senior year of high school), wonderful memories, and my nerdy love of history.
Needless to say, when I was asked by Living Without Magazine to write a travel article about Charlottesville, I couldn’t resist. Of course I had way too many gushing things to say about C’Ville, even though when I was a student, I hadn’t yet been diagnosed with celiac. I’ve been back many times since and have learned to navigate the GF world in C’Ville. I also enlisted the help of two of my former students (who are way cooler than me), Liz and Eleanor. They are now living the dream as 2nd years at UVA…they also have celiac so could give me the scoop on all of the yummy spots they enjoy.
Check out my article on Charlottesville by clicking here or buy the October/November issue of Living Without at your local Whole Foods or health food store. While I miss the delicious Take it Away sandwiches and Bodo’s Bagels, there are more and more options in C’ville for us gluten-freers. I promise!
