Later this summer I am going to be in Europe for almost a month for work and vacation. Unfortunately the places I will be staying at don't have gyms, so apart from bodyweight exercises I can do in my room I am going to be pretty much out of luck (however, I do hope to be able to visit a gym once or twice while I stay with a friend in the middle of the trip).

There's not much I can do about that; however, I am also concerned about diet and supplements (in this case, creatine). Normally I would just eat what I want and gain some weight, but I am hesitant to do so in this case as I won't be working out. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to eat while traveling? I'm not going to be too anal about it in any event, I just want to keep muscle loss/ fat gain to a minimum. Also, can you buy creatine in Europe? I am sure it would be legal to bring it with me, but I'm not about to try and get a white powder through the customs of a foreign country! :) I'm not too concerned as I can just start taking it again when I get back, but it would be nice to stay on it.

supplements are VERY expensive in Europe, buy them from where you are and bring them with you, pack them in your suitcase.
