I’m on a very short overnight trip to a neighbouring country and with the A(H1N1) flu scare going around, I did not want to take chances in crowded areas. So, I packed a little “beat the bug” kit slightly modified from my usual hygiene travel kit.
I usually carry the soluble Vitamin C and always take one every single day I’m on vacation. I believe it helps boost my immunity because when you’re on vacation or travelling, you tend to be tired and your body immunity is lowered. I use the soluble sort because it absorbs more quickly into your bloodstream. So, pump it up with Vitamin C! This time I’m taking 2 a day – I’m not taking chances!
Another regular item I carry is wet wipes. Its very useful for when you are hot – cools you right down as you wipe away sweat – or when you get your hands sticky with street food 😀 Also, its useful for when you don’t have access to running water to wash hands before eating or when you don’t quite trust the water supply.
2 new additions are the hand sanitizer and disposable face mask.
