More Food for personal emergencies...like "I am starving, what do we have to eat?" Right NOW!!!

It is true that travelers do not live by bread alone.  Adventures, if they are life-changing, touch all the senses as well as the heart.

That said, the stomach must be monitored and served.  Which leads me to snacks. Snacks, alias emergency junk food that must be available at all costs and at all times!!!!

  • Gum
  • Cheese or peanut butter and crackers
  • Individual coffee pouches
  • Granola bars
  • Tuna in a foil bag
Which then leads to lunch bags (are you following the breadcrumbs?  Yuck, yuck, groan.)





Beth bot us fold-up thermal lunch bags.  It's very expensive to eat and drink where we are going. As noted in the earlier post about food, the hotels do not discourage "go bags" from the breakfast buffet.  We will "picnic" on the train from the feedbags we pack before departing the hotel. 


We might just decide to have a picnic in the middle of the night on one of the glorious 24/7 daylight hours we will be enjoying. We could be longing for another "polse and Lompe" (It will take you a while to figure this one out). Remember hot dogs are a "hot" item.





We just can't wait to see the first breakfast buffet and see what we get to put in our new "go bags"!! Photos galore!

FACTOID: Today is Midsummer Night, aka J√≥nsmessa, in Iceland. According to Icelandic folklore, cows gain the power of speech for the night, and seals can take a human form! Be careful who you talk to!!!
