- If your stomach is sensitive to new flavours, carry your own cooker and make yourself a simple dinner in your hotel using rice, mung dal, salt, and spices.
- Take your own food and water for the duration of your journey so don’t have to rely on meals provided by the airline or trains.
- For long flights and train journeys, rub castor oil on your eyes, a drop of nasya oil in your nose and oil your ears with sesame oil.
