- Read Composition
It goes without saying that if you are a frequent traveler or not by now you should have a first-aid kit in your bag for any hands-on situation. The problem arises when some medicines are not allowed in the country you are visiting. In that case, thoroughly read up on compositions. If you are thorough with which compositions you need for fever, motion-sickness and more you can always head down to the drug store there and find the same under a different brand name.
- Observe the location
When planning a Bangkok trip, take motion-sickness tablets with you as there are plenty of boats rides you will end up going on. In desert places such as Dubai take plenty of water and keep hydrated. Study the geography of the place you are visiting and prepare accordingly.
- Hipster’s cleaning kit
If you are a couch surfer and frequently use AirBnB and public transport, food court etc, keep a cleaning kit with you. Fluff your pillows and wash the sheets before you go to bed. Use disinfectants during transport and your own set of cutlery if possible at food courts.
- Learn the allergens’ names
If you are allergic to nuts or are lactose intolerant, USA is easy to navigate as there are instructions on the packaging. If English is not the native language in the country you are visiting, know that you should carry an anti-allergy tablet as well read up on what they are called in so you can be careful when you order food.
Stay safe and happy traveling to you!
