3) Mini First Aid Kit
Don’t bring the whole kit and caboodle here, but do make sure you’re prepared for minor bumps, bruises, and cuts. Packing some basic first aid essentials could save you time and stress in a pinch. Because nobody plans to get hurt or sick, right? And if you do, it won’t likely happen in close proximity to a pharmacy or hospital. Bring band-aids, a small bottle of disinfectant, and gauze. If you’re going on a long trip, be sure to ask your doctor to refill of any prescriptions you might need and get it filled before you go. It’s difficult and a general mood-dampener trying to get a prescription filled in another country. It’s also a good idea to bring a few painkillers, cold medicine tablets, and mosquito spray – you may find these items are more expensive in foreign countries.
