Travel Tips - Food & Water

Avoid Traveler's Tummy

Eat reasonably-sized portions, avoid very spicy or greasy foods, and drink alcohol in moderation. Avoid the local tap water if purity is in doubt - this includes ice cubes and brushing your teeth with tap water.

Bland Food

Sometimes, bringing a favorite condiment along may help spice up bland or unappealing food when traveling.

Collapsible Cup

Pack a collapsible cup. You can use it if you need to share a bottle of water or soda, to make a hot beverage, or if you don't trust the glassware at your destination.

Dangerous Water

Carbonated beverages are generally safe to drink internationally. Avoid ice cubes in areas where the water is suspect, as well as glassware that may have been washed with unsafe water.

Food Allergies

If you have food allergies, list them on an index card and carry this information with you. In the event that you suffer an allergic reaction, emergency personnel can refer to this information.

Meal-On-The-Go

Pack a few 'meal-on-the-go' bars in your carry-on luggage. These will help tide you over until the next decent meal opportunity arises.

Safe Eating

When traveling in developing countries, remember the old saying, "if you can't boil it, cook it or peel it - don't eat it!"

Safe Water

Water purifiers are a small investment in comparison to getting ill when traveling. Depending on where and how long you are traveling, there are many options available.

Utensils

Pack a set of plastic eating utensils for picnics on-the-fly or even dining in your hotel room. Include a serrated knife so you can cut fruit, meat and bread. (The TSA allows only plastic or butter knives to be carried on board aircraft; securely wrap a serrated knife in your checked bag.)

Wine Opener

Pack a lightweight and reliable wine opener so you can be prepared for that delightful picnic along the Seine. There is nothing like a fresh loaf of bread, fresh local cheeses and meats and a bottle of wine!
