In this video, filmed with early-morning bed-hair and sleep wake-up voice in Florida on my way to Jamaica, I respond to the following Facebook question from Troy:
“When travelling, especially for an endurance event – do you partake of the ethnic or regional food choices? If so, pre-race or or post race? Do you bring bottled water if the water supply is suspect? What about anti-malarial meds or travel related immunizations? Do you carry travel health insurance? Is there need for concern regarding water quality (of the lake or ocean) on the swim leg of the triathlon?”
I am traveling this week to compete in the Jamaica Triathlon, and will answer your burning questions (using my video camera) on the topic of how to stay fit or eat right when you're traveling. To ask your question simply click Ask a Podcast Question at the bottom of this page, Skype to username “pacificfit”, or ask a question on the BenGreenfieldFitness Facebook page.

Very nice information. Thank you for sharing this video.
If you can, try and bring your own water supply, especially to unfamiliar places. It doesn't hurt to be safe, especially considering how easily can get sick from contaminated water.
I believe in being prepared, no matter what I do and traveling is no exception. Whether it's a long bus trip or if we take the car, I always make it a point to have enough supplies and insurance from philippine prudential life just in case.
