Losing weight while in European vacation?

I'm planning a 3 week trip to Europe at the end of the summer. With all the walking many miles everyday, I think I will lose weight, but then again, with all the croissants, wine and pasta, etc, maybe I will gain weight. I don't want to be a on a diet during my once in a lifetime trip, but I'll try not to go overboard. If I could eat what I want and remain the same weight I would happily settle for that.

Does anyone have experience with this issue? I know it's not a terrible situation to be in, but I'm curious what others have experienced.

Yep - went to France for 3 weeks. Ate the cheese, drank the wine and had hot chocolate and croissant every morning for breakfast and I stopped at a patisserie every day for lunch and tried a new pastry. I lost 5 pounds. Yes, I walked a lot, but I don't think that really made up for it. Can't explain it.

Eat like the locals-Europeans eat wonderful, real, decadent food and stay slim. They don't fill up on empty calories or eat mindlessly, dining is a ritual and it the cuisine deserves it. Walk whenever you have the chance, and you'll be fine.
Bon voyage!

You will walk until your feet...and the pounds, literally fall off, I promise!

When I lived in Europe I walked about 8 miles on an average day, it was nothing. I ate lots of chocolate but I stayed trim because of all of the activity.

With exercise and not completely overeating or drinking (but still enjoying), you should be just fine. Enjoy your trip! :)
