    My endocrinologist told me to get an American Express Gold card in case I ever needed medical transport to the USA from Europe. I haven’t ever needed it, but I still have that credit card! Also – my experience in the Czech Republic is that those cute little sugar packets also come in a sugarless variety. Fortunately, I do know how to say “sugar” in many languages. In French, FYI, it’s ‘sucre.’ Pronounced a bit like an ‘s’ followed by a German ‘u’ with an umlaut over the top, followed by a ‘k’ sound. (Better to find one of those online pronunciation sites for this purpose!!! I can imagine that having a gluten allergy in France would be a BIG problem!

    Thanks for this post, Amy. I am about to head off on vacation, and this is a great reminder for PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE.
