|5 Great Travel Survival Tips
How to Survive While Traveling
In one way or another, aside from the business purpose that some
travelers pursue, traveling is known to be one outlet for the
adventurous aspect of a lot of people. Sure, traveling can be
one heck of a fun activity. However, one is never sure on what
untoward incident that can be encountered while enjoying the
sights and scenes during the trip.
To avoid getting caught off guard while traveling, here are a
few tips to ensure survival while traveling:
1. Know your water.
Ever heard of the traveler's diarrhea? This condition is caused
by contaminated water that a foreigner has drunk. Aside from
that diarrhea, a list of diseases abounds due to contaminated
water. To prevent getting any of those water-borne diseases,
make sure you boil your drinking water for at least 10 minutes.
2. Milk will do.
Remember that thing they say regarding milk as the complete
food? It still is true. As long as you boil it for at least 10
minutes too, like how you should have your water, it will serve
as one of your best sources of nutrition. Local processed milk
products may not be safe for your tummy, better opt for a more
popular brand of milk product.
3. Vitamins Schmitamins.
Bringing vitamins will help in warding off many of the diseases
that an unguarded (with resistance-building supplements) person
may be so prone to. Multivitamins can be more convenient to
bring than separate vitamins for various needs.
4. Battling extreme temperatures.
Doing one's homework before going to any foreign country will
save one from a lot of trouble. These troubles may include
temperature or weather induced inconveniences. An online
consultation will inform one what to bring to gear up against
any problem that may be caused by the weather or temperature.
If you are to go to one hot spot of the world, your luggage will
benefit a lot since you don't have to bring a heavy and thick
wardrobes. Now if you are about to visit a place like
Antarctica, one tip is to choose well your clothes so as not to
stock up much on those that you will not be using that much.
5. Taking care of your skin.
Don't forget your bottle of moisturizer if you're going
somewhere cold. A sunscreen will be very indispensable too. A
lotion or anything that will ward off insects is one must-have
that should never be overlooked either. One best advice that is
applicable too even when you're not traveling that much is to
avoid getting sun exposure as much as possible.
