When you travelling around other countries , stay at least 5 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from people who didn’t travel with you ( airport areas/covid testing areas) , particularly in crowded areas. It’s important to do this anywhere — both indoors and outdoors .
Get tested 3-6 days after travel & stay at home for at least 7 days after travelling.
Check for alert and be notify of the current country’s updates
Never assume that no mishaps will happen on a trip. Even minor bruises should be taken care of. Always keep your first- aid kit handy.
Carry along medicines that you are likely to use, like aspirin for headaches, laxative for proper bowel movement and pain relievers. If you have a runny nose, buy a couple of decongestant. Dehydration and motion sickness is common when traveling, consult your doctor on which medicine is appropriate for you.
Bring along a roll of bandage, safety pins and scissors. Tweezers might be needed to pull out foreign materials that penetrate the skin. Bring ointments and alcohols for treating abrasions. If you are prone to allergies and itching, antihistamine medications like Benadryl should be handy.
Remember to bring along whatever medication you are taking. Bring enough supply to last for the entire trip.
Personal Hygiene Kit
This kit must include all your toiletries. This will keep you looking fresh all the time.
Bring along your toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss. Buy a small bottled mouthwash or if you have plenty of supply left, just transfer it to a smaller container.
Carry along your favorite brush, comb and shampoo. Stuff in your hair spray, hair cream and gels if you are using one.
This will include your make-up kit. Remember to bring only the cosmetics that you are likely to use. Carry with you a handy mirror. You can bring your manicure set too.
Keep your skin healthy by putting on sunscreen and lip balm as often as you need them.
Bring along with you sets of toilet papers, soaps, towels and washcloth.
This includes the stuff you might need like flashlights, lighters, pocket knife and duct tapes. Mobile phones are important in case of emergency, be sure to bring your charger and an extra battery.
For added fun, you can bring along your travel journal, reading materials and the locale’s language book. Make the most out of fantastic views with your binoculars and your camera.
