Riding a train doesn't feel much different than taking a car. Except maybe for the fact that you don't have to keep your eyes on the road at all times. If you are on a plane there are a bit more changes the body has to adjust to. This is mostly due to the change in cabin pressure. If you are a frequent air traveler you probably don't notice the changes anymore. However a first time traveler might feel different. A change in cabin pressure can cause your organs to swell. This can cause much discomfort to people who aren't used to it. To help, first time travelers should try not to overeat since it will only add to the problem. There's no law saying you can't pack your own food, so do it. Pack some healthy snacks like nutrition bars.
