Travel ‘Must Haves’ (for International Travel) at the WON

After our trip to New Zealand we still suggest checking out these travel tips. We also received suggestions from friends who’ve traveled to Mongolia, Turkey and other areas of the world. They all stated they always take a needle and suture to care for their own injuries. One said his group went as far as to pack their own blood, just in case of an event requiring emergency transfusions. Another said to take extreme caution when traveling to some parts of the world because the medical facilities can carry more diseases than you bargained for.

Take care, be safe and have fun in your worldly adventures.

Women’s Outdoor News’ publisher Barbara Baird mentioned being sick during a recent trip. One of her colleagues remarked that Cipro, (aka Ciprofloxacin, a prescription antibiotic) is helpful in fighting bacterial infections. It’s said to help with food poisoning, and we’ve all heard the “Montezuma’s revenge” tales of international travel. What I don’t know is whether or not a doctor will prescribe it before you have an ailment.

Speaking of prescriptions and travel, always remember to pack your … (CLICK HERE to read more)
