I normally take food while I travel,but problem comes once the food gets over. I have to buy at some station if I go by train. We are not sure of the qualtiy of food we buy at rilway stations. It is alwyas better to carry sufficient food while we travel. Do you?

I take snacks when I travel, ones that are light and easy to carry like rice cakes, nuts and fruit bars. I know food at railway stations is pricey and there is such a limited choice. When I go on a train or a bus I take a bottle of water with me. I have to just take a few snacks in my hand luggage and no drinks when I fly. Airport security has its rules nowadays about liquids. Typically on a two week trip I can carry enough snacks for myself. For my toddler son on a two week trip he needs two pots of soya drink formula powder and food that is easy to carry.

The type of food I take depends on where I´m going. But when I travel, I always try to make my food as much as possible because it´s cheaper.

I love eating. Thus, I need to write down the food in my checklist every time I will be traveling. Aside from that I easily felt bored especially in long hours of travel and only food can help to get over. Another reason why I make sure I have food is that I don't want to get hungry of course. When you buy food in terminal of buses, the cost usually higher than the grocery store to where you stay. Saving money is important, we need to be wise.

I did. I don't know if you like hiking or tracking, i like them both. If you every go tracking in the mountain, food is a neccessary thing that you should carry with you because you don't have any stores or place to input your supply. But there is another problem of food, it you take too much food with you, you will feel heavy on your bed and might keep you moving fast. But there is some dangerous thing happens, if you can have more food in your bag, if you get lost, at least you still have food with you to surrive till someone comes to you. But going for travel is another thing, you can always find the supplies, so i will bring some food for me, and buy the rest on the road.

I tend to carry rather than buy foods when traveling. In case I and my husband were not able to carry something, we only buy on trusted stores and some food chains. It is very hard to risk your safety on stores especially on bus stop stations because most of the foods are not safe and they are even expensive even if they are about to expire. I hate it when people still sell foods that looks dirty and expired. Anyway I love eating when traveling especially tasting specialty foods and delicacies in different provinces.

i also carry foods like junk foods but if it is a long drive then i carry food like rice and some foods that it will make me full. ITs better to be ready for any circumstances from the travel to make sure that i have a sufficient food to be eaten.
