Good day to all
Looking for a few handy pointers on backpacking through Eastern Europe with T1.
We are heading to Prague and Budapest etc in the middle of winter [Feb 2011] making backing even more tricky than it already is. My husband is a newby T1 and this is the first tour we'll be attempting with T1. My question is not on what to take with [saw this has been discussed in depth before] but rather how to go about keeping the sugars controlled with unknown new and exotic foods we don't have a clue what the carb composition could be.
We are still trying to decide whether we should go with a tour group [like Contiki or Trafalgar] where a lot of the meals are included thus you don't really have the option of trying to find the healthier restaurants, or doing it solo and trying to find supermarkets where you can purchase healthier food and then taking it back to a backpacker to prepare.
So, any T1's who have traveled Eastern Europe, please could you point me in the right direction. Do they have supermarkets around every corner, will I be able to prepare the food if I cant read the language and are there any health chain store restaurants in Eastern Europe?
