Having a hangover while travelling is not a good idea. It can hamper your travel plans and can cost you a lot.

Knowing local cuisine can be of immense help when you are trying to fight a severe headache. So, here is a list of some regional hangover dishes from all over the world that will come handy after the party.
English drinks can hit the spot too hard sometimes. What is a better way to cure a hangover than a full English Breakfast with eggs, toast, sausages, bacon, baked beans and stir-fried vegetables.
