I just remembered how I was begging a bus driver to stop anywhere so that I can pee because I was seriously pressed. The funniest thing was I could not figure out what I ate that turned my stomach. I ate different kinds of food before the trip. After driving for few hours, the result started showing. You need to see how I was sweating under AC bus and I learnt my lessons in a hard way.
A world travel expert said she does not eat onboard the aeroplane because it is a major cause of jet lag. She can eat whatsoever thing she wants either before or after the trip.
