Now this is very, very, VERY obvious but if you are going travelling you need to be incredibly clear of what inoculations you need, if any, along with how much medication you will need to take.

I cannot stress how important this is, the risks are very real! If you are somewhere remote and something awful happens then what you medical equipment you are carrying may well be the matter between life or death.
Another must have is Dioralyte which replenishes the body’s lost salts and rehydrates the body in the event of an upset stomach and diarrhea. I don’t know a single person who hasn’t been affected at some point in their trip by this so stock up!!! In the event of running out a can of coke with a tea spoon of salt can do the trick.
