Traveling abroad is a unique experience that allows you to get involved with other cultures and meet new people, which is a very enriching adventure. Like the great philosopher St. Augustine once said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. 

However, a very unfortunate yet common situation is getting sick during a trip, which can be a major setback that will make you lose precious time. To avoid it, at Up & Away Travel in Pembroke Pines, we would like to share with you a few ideas to stay healthy while traveling abroad. 

Visit your Doctor

It’s important to visit your doctor to find out which vaccinations you will need for your trip. There are some diseases that are native to certain countries and you need to be prepared for them. 

Jet Lag

Your travel starts from the moment you board the plane; you have to be well-rested, so you can enjoy every minute at your destination. A few weeks before your trip, adjust your meal and sleep times to the ones of your destination and don’t forget to drink plenty of water. 

Food & Water

Getting to know a foreign country also means trying the local delicacies, however you should be careful where you do it. Avoid eating raw or undercooked foods, also find out if the water is safe to drink, otherwise to bottled water and avoid ice.

First Aid Kit

If you are taking prescription medications, make sure to bring enough and a little extra for your trip. Don’t forget to also pack a basic healthy kit that should include allergy, anti-diarrheal, cold and pain medications. Plus, if you are traveling to warmer places, you should also include plenty of mosquito repellent.
