Traveljunkieindonesia.com – Hi travel junkies everywhere!
A basic travel first aid kit is important no matter where you travel.
This brings me to the most important rule of a kit: “You can’t use it if its not with you.” I like to think of my kit as an insurance policy that I hope to never use.
And, don’t forget the medicines in your first aid kit have a limited lifetime. Check ‘use by’ dates, and ask your pharmacist for advice to ensure the contents of your kit remain effective and safe to use.
What’s in My Travel First Aid Kit?
01. Sunburn is prevented with a sunblock cream that has a high sun protection factor (SPF).
