We’re here to help you plan an incredible trip.
We’re Matt and Alysha, the two endlessly curious (gluten free) travelers behind this site.
We spent the past two years traveling the world, which included 18 national parks here in the United States, and several months exploring in Europe.
Recently, we have chosen to put down roots in Portland, Oregon, and look forward to exploring even more of the Pacific Northwest. Before that, we’ve lived in San Francisco and Seattle, and know those cities like the back of our hands.
We plan (and pay for) all of our own travels, and we use our first hand knowledge to write detailed travel guides to the places we love to help YOU plan an amazing trip.

We’re Matt and Alysha, the two endlessly curious gluten free foodies behind Wheatless Wanderlust. We believe that travel is about learning, discovery, and connection.
We’ll help you become a more active participant when you travel – as opposed to an observer – by helping you find ways to connect with locals through cooking classes, walking tours, and more.
We write detailed travel guides to help you forge deeper connections, and hopefully we’ll help you discover something new along the way.
PS: Matt has Celiac Disease, and we write gluten free travel guides to help you find the best safe gluten free restaurants around the world!
The Wilcox Pass Trail is probably our favorite stop on the Icefields Parkway, and is our pick for the best hike on the drive between Banff and Jasper (not including the hikes at Lake Louise). The reason? You spend most of the hike above the treeline (which means excellent alpine meadows and views), you get…
If you’re looking for a relatively easy hike in Washington that takes you to one of the best waterfalls in Washington, the Twin Falls Trail in North Bend (inside Olallie State Park) is for you. As a bonus, the hike to Twin Falls is also accessible year-round thanks to its low elevation, which makes it…
As we made our way north from the Seattle area towards the Skykomish River Valley to hike to Wallace Falls, we were enveloped in a dense layer of fog that had us wondering whether or not we’d even be able to see the falls. We arrived in the parking lot, which seemed to be on…
