Anyhow, my teen and I were dorks and took silly "touristy" style photos as we were heading down the escalator from security toward immigrations… thank God there was no one watching us running UP the escalator to switch places and get back in place for the second round of photos!! GREAT primal exercise, by the way!!

|"OK, I'm being more positive!!"|
|Me after darting back up the escalator… I think I'm still walking up the down side!!"|
I just had my first snack. 2 hard boiled eggs, a handful of carrots, cauliflower and orange bell pepper strips. Prior to pulling out my stash, I had walked around and the smells of all the breaded and fried foods was smelling WAY too good (that still happens, even after almost a year!), so I quickly sat down and got out my stash. Now, somehow this stash is going to have to last for the next full day as we're leaving at night Japan-time, getting into Hawaii in the morning (of the SAME day!!) then traveling through that day and night into the next morning. So, the 5 hard boiled eggs are now down to 1 left (hey! My son needs to eat, too!!). I still have a good amount of the veggies, but made two lovely bags of nuts/dried fruits/dark chic chips and have those in my bag, too! I also grabbed two, off the shelf beef jerkys. Nope, can't get all the wondrous grass-fed beef and au naturale jerky you all can in the states, and I have not yet started to make my own… so, I found Oberto! brand's "natural" and it does not have soy sauce (read "gluten") in it, so it's in my bag. Some additives as it has "flavoring" in it, but I'll sacrifice those preservative/flavorings in favor of soy sauce laden Japanese "fast food" which is sure to make me visit the restroom a LOT.
So, what do YOU eat when you travel? Do you try to 'make do' with what's served by picking and choosing? Or do you bring your stuff like I did? (let's see how long it lasts… might end up picking and choosing by tomorrow!!)
