When I went to Mexico, I brought along books, a swimsuit, some sunscreen, flip flops…and aspirin.
Note that aspirin alone doesn’t make a first aid kit, but I was traveling with my prepared parents and I knew for a fact that they’d have a mini-kit with bandages and much more. In fact, when I got a sun allergy (seriously? that happens?), my mom reminded me that she had a decent supply of Benedryl on hand for just that sort of thing.
Which begs the question — When you travel, do you bring first aid supplies?
If not, you might as well start now. Pack them up, stick the kit in a suitcase and leave it there. That way it’ll be there when you need it.
Need help figuring out what to include?
