Water – my best travel buddy

I am at the airport right now, on my way to Switzerland to attend a friend’s wedding. It’s 9am here and the food shops are starting to open, but I am starving. So I pick up a croissant from Starbucks and rush to my gate.

I get on the flight at 9:30, wait for 1.5hrs before the in-flight food service commences. I pick the vegetable pasta option, served with a side of hot bread and chocolate cake. It’s delicious and I gulp it down. But an hour later I start feeling heavy in my stomach.

This is usually my tale with airport food and post meal uneasiness. It’s really hard sometimes to find fresh and fulfilling options. But after multiple travels I have found my remedy. AISLE SEATS and a BIG BOTTLE OF WATER.

Weather control in the flight makes them dehydrating, coupled with carb loaded food can really take a toll on the stomach. Sometimes the food is unavoidable. But if you can keep drinking lots of water throughout the flight (300ml every 30min), than it really helps calm the stomach and keep you fresh.

Try it!

Cheers to Traveling heathy!

Satori

Satori is a Japanese buddhist term that simply means “understanding”. But it stretches the definition of understanding to awakening, i.e. “seeing into one’s true nature”. To strive to continually and truly understand something.

For me, Satori is a way of life. It is about not just leading a life but living a conscious life, absorbing the world around and asking questions to dig deeper into the whys, so that one day I could find peace with my role in this world, and if I am really lucky then make a positive impact on someone else.

My objective of starting this blog is to keep myself accountable to being curious, asking questions and sharing my learnings in the blogosphere.
