Flying with Provisions

Jump to last reply

With a villa rental, and only a week, I am thinking of doing one checked bag to include bathrobes for the pool area, lotions and potions and bug spray. We are used to traveling and buying on island in Hawaii but it seems more realistic to bring these things for just a week.

I'm wondering about bringing some frozen provisions and pantry items to take advantage of the villa's grill. Thinking of marinating and freezing lamb chops and a couple of steaks, some rice, some soy, some olive oil to leave behind. Toss in a bottle of vodka and some wine. Has anyone travelled with checked perishables? I realize that the local grocer iGA is well stocked, but like the idea of arriving with a couple of sunset meals and only the need to shop for produce. This weeks circular at IGA features chicken legs and talapia - neither enticing. A week of conch will get old.

Thoughts?
