When I’m travelling or out and about, I’ve learned to ALWAYS have snacks on hand.
How many times have you gotten hangry (hungry + angry) at your travel partner?
How many times have you gotten hungry while out and ended up grabbing something that you didn’t REALLY want to eat, but it was the only option?
I always used to feel this way at the airport. It makes me cringe to pay expensive prices for crappy food.
I had an overnight flight last night and I ate a large-ish dinner just before going to the airport. I knew I’d get hungry again later so I brought some snacks that I bought along with my groceries on Sunday:
- popcorn with Nutritional Yeast
- an apple
- cherry tomatoes
I also like bringing ear plugs and an eye mask so I can fall asleep in total darkness and silence. Ideally I wouldn’t even have taken a red-eye flight, because poor sleep quality = a weakened immune system. Also I feel pretty terrible the next day when I haven’t slept well, but sometimes you don’t have much of a choice.
