You are not releasing eggs so there is no waste to wash away. This could be to the changes you have mentioned of traveling. Maybe your diet may change. The healthier you eat, the lighter flow you have. Ie vegetarians have light periods. Meat eaters have a heavier one.

It could be due to stress, but you might want to talk to your gynecologist about it.

The probable reason as to why you will miss your period regularly if you travel is due to stress, change in diet or hormonal imbalance. There is no need for alarm if they come without extreme cramping. However, you should consult with a gynecologist about your situation to find the way forward.
