Honeymooning In a Foreign Country with Food Allergies


Honeymooning internationally can be quite a pickle (in fact, it can be dangerous) if you have food allergies. — Especially if you don’t know the language of the country

SelectWisely Translation Cards help you communicate your needs to restaurant waiters, hotel managers, open air market vendors, grocery store clerks, street kiosk vendors, and transportation personnel.

When ordering or purchasing food, show your SelectWisely card to the manager or the maitre’d (as well as the waiter or waitress).  Allow the waiter or waitress to take the card into the kitchen to inform the chef.  According to the SelectWisely web site, you should show both sides of the card, and point to the picture of the food with the international prohibitory sign.  Make sure they understand.

Check out the SelectWisely web site for some of the general tips they gathered from their personal experience and from speaking to other travelers.

Enjoy, and have a safe and happy honeymoon!

Love and Soul Always, Ka
