I recently became gluten free but I am really starting to panic about my upcoming year abroad in Paris. All I think of when I hear French food is bread and pastries and I'm worried that I won't be able to find any of the gluten free foods I eat at home (such as special g.f. pasta, flour, etc). Has anyone experienced this problem and how did you resolve it?

Firstly - hello everyone! I'm completely new here, and am full of silly questions regarding studying abroad. Here we go... I'm a 24-year-old Geography (BSc) graduate from the University of Southampton - I graduated in 2013, and having had a little while away from study, have the real urge to follow Geography/Climate Studies at Masters level. Abroad. My question is - how would a two-and-a-half-year hiatus be viewed by Universities in the US & around Europe? Would I be at disadvantage due to a lack of consecutive study?
