How to maintain proper hygiene while holidaying abroad

It is tough to maintain proper hygiene while you are on the road covered in dust and grime with only old roadside motels for accommodation. Discussed below are some simple yet practical tips that keep you safe and healthy while holidaying around.

Always Carry Your Own Water

You can never be entirely sure of the sanitation of the local tap water in areas you are traveling. Drinking contaminated water is the easiest way to catch deadly infections and other water-borne diseases. Therefore it is best that you avoid drinking the water served in local restaurants or roadside eating joints (even cold drinks, juice, and ice). Carry your own water bottle instead.

Take Your First-Aid Kit

Staying in a remote unknown area can be quite exciting for a traveler who loves exploring new places. However, amidst all the frolic and fun tourists often miss out a tiny but significant detail, their safety, and health. A first-aid kit is an indispensable part of your carry bag. From fresh band-aids to natural pills and other medications, the first-aid kit has got you covered for any untoward situation. Always be prepared for emergencies, you never know when you will fall sick. FULL POST
