If They Don’t Have It, Bring It
Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Joseph R., who says:
“If you use artificial sweetener in your coffee or tea and you plan to visit England (or maybe other countries also), prepare to bring your own. We were in England in October and although the food was good most everywhere we went, some restaurants did not have any artificial sweetener on hand. You received quizzical looks when you asked for a particular brand or if you asked for any at all. Go to the big box store of your choice and buy the box of 1000 packets. I always keep a few in my travel pouch just in case. I’ve even had to pull out a few in a Starbucks right in Manhattan. Who would have thought that would be necessary?”
Not everybody uses artificial sweetener, but it’s definitely true that the essentials you’re used to back home may not be available out of country—so pack accordingly. Thanks, Joseph!
Unrelated: With the big winter storm forecasted, flights this weekend may be affected. Here’s what to do if you’re faced with weather delays and flight cancellations.
