I hope you have found the previous eleven days of Christmas helpful for your future travel and good health. There are many items I have left off, due to either personal preference or lack of space in my travel bag.
Here is a brief summary of the previous 11 days:
Day 1: Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
Day 2: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
Day 3: Hydrocortisone cream 1%
Day 4: Saline nasal spray
Day 5: Non steroidal anti-inflammatory (Motrin, Advil, Aleve)
Day 6: Hand Sanitizer (high % of alcohol)
Day 7: Anti-diarrheal medication (loperamide, Lomotil)
Day 8: Artificial tears
Day 9: Probiotics
Day 10: Electrolytes
Day 11: Bag or container for your Days 1-10 items
Day 12: Your choice!!!
What might some of these Twelfth Day items consist of?
Ear plugs (or noise cancelling headphones)
Disposable face mask
Condoms (and Viagra)
Pepto-Bismol or Antacids
Antibiotics (from your travel doc)
Antibiotic cream (double antibiotic)
Pedialyte (or other electrolyte drink)
Motion sickness medication (meclizine or dimenhydrinate)
BTW, feel free to share your own favorites.
Of course, much depends on where you are going. Our trip to Africa required bringing many meds and first aid items. Obviously, a trip to London or Paris requires much less. But whatever you do, and wherever you go, always expect the unexpected. And I always buy travel insurance!
