Using mattress pad or furniture pad makes it more convenient to shake away sand and dirt. Apart from this both of these can be washed easily. Don't afraid of carrying favorite dishes; wrap them well with tea towels. Tea, soft drinks coffee and juice etc taste better in glass containers. If you worry about breaking or losing of favourite cutlery, crockery, plates, buy cheap ones. You should take along cake covers of various sizes that will keep your food safe from insects.
