Cathay Pacific gluten free meal • Flight Sydney > HongKong > Rome

Posted on

In September last year, I had the opportunity to spend my holidays in Europe and it was fantastic! The only downside was the long flight from Sydney to Rome.

This time we decided to go via Cathay Pacific, and as I know some people are super curious (I’m one of them) to know what the airlines serve on their flights, I’ve decided to create this blog. This one is a very special one, as I got the Gluten Free special meal for all the way from Sydney to Rome!

We departed from Sydney around lunchtime, so for this specific flight, we had two main meals: lunch and dinner.

Fish, with rice, salad and fruits.

This blog will be a summary of an unforgivable time I’ve spent in Italy in September last year. My idea is to list what I did on 6 full days passing by Rome, Naples, Florence, and Cinque Terre.

It was such a great time!!! I hope it will help you to sort out what to do in these cities in case you are short on time.

3 Days in Rome
Explore Rome in 2 full days and reserve an extra one to visit Naples and taste their delicious pizza!

1 Day in Cinque Terre (link)
Either for sigh seen, or to go on an amazing hike, Cinque Terre is a must. In case you are in Florence, 1 full day is enough to get to know these five villages.

How to go low carb in Italy 🇮🇹

Posted on

Many people believe Italy is THE carbohydrate land. Pasta, pizza, and gelatos everywhere, all the time. Indeed, if you want, it can be true.

However, Italian Cusine is much more than pasta! There are a huge number of dishes with amazing flavors and combinations, just waiting for you to delight yourself with a great low carb feast!

I’ll not lie, I had pasta, pizza, and gelato. Innumerous time to be honest, but I also had other amazing meals throughout my almost 8 days in Italy, full of salads, gorgeous meats, and nutrient-dense ingredients. That’s why I decided to share here with you a few ideas from all the meals I had there.

Trattoria da Valentino • Rome
I had a three-course lunch at this place, which includes salad (or pasta), meat, and a dessert (that you can skip).

Simple salad - mixed leaves, tomato, and carrot.
