Have you ever almost pooped your pants on vacation? Or is that just me? Earlier this year when my family and I were traveling in Australia, we reached a code red level emergency while grocery shopping in Byron Bay. It turns out they don’t have bathrooms in grocery stores in Australia. WHO doesn’t have a bathroom?! The closest one was blocks away so I ran back to the parked car where my husband was waiting for me and Navy’s necessary yogurt for the morning that I, of course, still had to purchase despite my emergency state (I was NOT leaving the store without that yogurt!). I jumped in the car, yelled “DRIIIIIVE!” and proceeded to frighten both my husband and my daughter with my awkward doubled-over-rolled-in-a-ball position necessary to make the drive home. Well, I did make it to the bathroom (in a full sweat but still, made it) and to this day Navy reminds me “don’t forget to go to the bathroom and go poopy!” on the regular.
The day of the incident… it all started out so well
As you can probably tell, keeping my digestive system moving along is a huge priority in life, but especially when traveling. That’s probably why one of the questions I get asked a ton is how to keep your gut healthy when you’re away from home and out of your usual routine. So whether you’re heading out on an overseas adventure or taking a weekend trip away, travel season is here and today, I’m sharing my best gut tips for a happy belly no matter where you are.
Next month, I’ll be putting these tips into play during my family summer vacation. You’ll get the behind the scenes here and on my Instagram on where we’re heading (Navy too of course!) and what I’m packing for me and my family.
