Hi,
I am researching for a book and wanted to know when people travelled long journeys either in private carriages or in mail coach say, did they carry anything to drink or must they have just waited for the next stop at a tavern?

@poppinjay,
Some travelers might well have brought along a bottle of Arrack or brandy. Maybe even a few bottles of gin.

Of course not all travelers would be to drinking distilled spirits and might have either waited for the next ton or perhaps th driver of the coach would occasionally stop along a tranquil stream so the horses could be watered and travellers could join in.

Nobody ever refers to the "Georgian Era".

OK I give in. I always called 1714-1830 the "Georgian Period". Oh well.

@centrox,
That's my preference as well, but the usage of Georgian Era goes back quite a way.

@centrox,
thanks for
a) the pedantry
b) the slight condescension
c) best of all, not answering the question at all, expert.
