Preventing Illness

Travel can be amazing; being sick on a trip certainly is not. Unfortunately, for those of us who like to see the world, being ill sometimes may be inevitable. To help prevent a complication on your next trip, remember this advice from the U.S. State Department:

  • Stay away from raw foods.
  • Choose your local restaurants carefully. If it looks dirty in the dining room, it could be worse in the kitchen.
  • Local water supplies could also be a breeding ground for bacteria. Always use bottled water (even to brush your teeth), and beware of fake bottled water – tap water sold as bottled. Be aware that ice may also be made from local tap water.
  • Practicing healthy habits, like washing your hands regularly, will help ensure that you stay healthy and enjoy your entire trip.
