A little forethought goes a long way. With a little pre-trip preparation, your trip can be the easy, care-free vacation you desire.
Don’t miss a moment of your fun summer vacation. Prepare your body so you don’t miss a beat! Planning to be healthy is half the battle; always have healthy snacks on hand so if you’re caught starving and with nothing healthy in sight you will have an alternative.
What to pack?
Tips for vegans on the go
If you are a vegan, stock your backpack with rice, oatmeal, quinoa, and lentils. This way, you only need to search for fresh produce during your trip and you can cook something up for any meal. Obviously book accommodation with a self-catering option. Also pack snack bars, nuts and dried berries and a few fun extras like powdered superfoods and humus. Find dehydrated versions of your favourite comfort foods to make life on the road easier! Learn food names in the local language; in places that are not vegetarian friendly, if you know the names of foods you cannot eat, many restaurants are willing to make something. You can be vegan abroad, or choose not to be. Don’t worry, we won’t tell either way.
Avoid oysters while travelling
Yongjie Wang, a food science specialist at Shanghai Ocean University and lead author of a recently published study, concluded that oysters were an important reservoir for human noroviruses — a place where they can hide between outbreaks and mutate. They can also be transmitted back to humans, presumably when oysters are eaten raw.
