Every now and then I ask some of our customers to give us feedback on how effective our cards were on their trip. This comment came back from a customer who purchased some food allergy cards for their vacation to Italy. Aside from commenting that the cards worked well, he also mentioned this: “I tended to drink more carbonated bottled water instead of regular plain bottled water or tap water. What I did not realize was the high sodium content in the carbonated water was causing me to use the toilet or restroom frequently. There are not a great deal of public toilets around Italy's cities. This made for some very tense moments as you can imagine!”
The same is probably true for consuming too much vino. Note to self: Whatever you drink, do some good planning when you’re traveling through Italy!
