I'm also type 1, and do like to be precise with carb counts if I can, but I also recognise that being on holiday is a time to "let it go" to a degree. In other words, I do the best I can and accept slightly less tight control than I manage at home. I'm fortunate that I have more than 25 years of carb counting on my side to help me estimate, but I still get it wrong. If anything though I tend to err on the side of caution (remember the effect of walking around World Showcase too!) but watch numbers closely and react accordingly.

Do you use any visual carb counting apps? Things like Carbs and Cals can be very useful for estimating things based on size. Even if the exact item isn't in the app, you can often find something equivalent, and this creates a starting point for a best guess dose.
What a silly world eh? That something which is helpful or health reasons could lead to someone being sued 🙄.
No she doesn’t use any carb counting apps. Generally I suppose she sort of eats the same kind of things and so “gestimates” and adjusts and tweaks.
I think because they are trialling a new thing with her she is wondering about it.
In the past yes it’s always been a case of more treats etc with the heat and the walking etc and her levels have always been really good over there but she was just saying how for the food around the world she wouldn’t know where to start with the carb counting as it’s odd little portion sizes etc.
