    Hi Amanda,
    A great summary. It is easier to write about such a challenge. Walking brings a different view of the landscape. Many times it is the small stuff and not the big stuff which nesses things up. As always have a great day.

    My biggest piece of advice is to NEVER FORGET THAT TIME ZONE CHANGE! My carb ratio is so high in the morning that I never eat carbs at breakfast. Fast forward to France? The first morning, I crashed from the bolus when I got tempted by a croissant (though it was breakfast time in France, my body thought it was dinnertime and thus I needed less insulin).

    I ‘move’ towards the time zone I’m in by about 2 hours each day. Because my basal rates and boluses are dramatically different in the morning hours, I have to be VERY VERY careful to take this into account.

    My trip oddly kind of ended up centering around my dinnertime bolus/carb ratio for the entire day (1 unit/16g). My breakfast bolus is 1 unit/7g usually!

    BE CAUTIOUS until you learn how your body reacts to time zone changes!!!

    Good list, Amanda. It looks as though you have a good head on your shoulders and your preparedness will serve you well as you continue your life journey with diabetes.

    I am a list person and have a Trip List on my computer that I print out every time I travel. It’s a good starting point to make sure that I don’t forget the important things like insulin, glucose tabs, etc. Maybe I should add underwear to my list!

    I look forward to reading more of your posts at Diabetes Mine.

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for sharing your travel experiences. There are times that I almost forgot my daily routine due to wonderful and fun activities. Anyway, I agree with you that having a vacation doesn’t mean that you’re also taking a vacation from diabetes.

    So quit buying computers and receiving a new a single each and every
    handful of months, just decide to buy this and leave
    your worries behind, gamer or not you’ll really enjoy it.

    The graphics capabilities within this HP ENVY 17-1010nr Laptop
    are powered by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD Graphics Card (5850).

    Keyboard quality is a major selling point of
    the T series, particularly for those who prefer old-school beveled keys, which are
    less common these days.
