Travel Tip: Food.
Before you set out to your adventure, have a thorough look into your mirror; wouldn’t it be great to lose some kilos/pounds just like this? Most of us will silently agree, so food should only be an important factor to stay healthy, but it does not need to be the top the list.
I think the most important thing to bring along, is a water kettle. It will keep you out of trouble – you can make your own tea or coffee (a major source of all diarreah diseases). You never know how water is boiled, even in the most expensive restaurants (and what for so you need those anyway?)…So when you wake up, make yourself a nice morning coffee to get the day started.
The setting in a nice restaurant might be nicer or cosier, but for a good lunch or evening meal go out in the area where you stay, or ask the guy at the reception where the local food stalls are. Always choose the place with the most people; this food will likely be the freshest and these high frequented spots have a good turn-over of food. Maybe chicken curry is not your favourite at the time but it will be fresh and keep you out of stomach troubles. After having enjoyed a great meal (which doesn’t cost more than a loaf of bread in our western countries), sit down with the locals for an evening drink in this flashy setting…
