Don’t Be “Sick On The Road”
There are 32 bloggers that give their educated opinions on ways to stay healthy. These insights include everything from obvious suggestions to wear sunscreen and using hand sanitizer to something as obscure as bringing your own hypodermic needles. This last suggestion came from a blogger who broke a bone while traveling in India. The conditions at the medical facility were so unclean she refused the shot for pain being pretty sure the needle wasn’t sterile. Good advice since needles are something I wouldn’t have thought about packing but will now depending on the destination.
There is much more information on the site under the “Hot Topics” category like: Vaccines and Immunization, Malaria and Travel Insurance to name a few. It is so important to be informed and educated about where you’re going, especially if it’s outside your country of origin. They also invite you to submit your helpful hints for others to read.
You can read one of our previous blogs about the SteriPEN which is an incredible and affordable little hand held water purifier. I think the Mrs. Bird Bag we have available would make an excellent way to organize your first aid supplies keeping them contained and easy to grab in a hurry. Let’s all be happy, healthy travelers!
