Top 3 Vacation Nightmares And How To Tackle Them
Vacation Nightmare #3: Falling Sick

Nothing can ruin a holiday faster than falling sick while travelling. Statistics show that as many as 20% to 50% of all international travellers fall ill with stomach flu (diarrhoea in other words) while travelling. Here's what you should do to keep yourself healthy when on vacation:
  • If you have a sensitive stomach, make sure you drink bottled mineral water while travelling. If you're staying in a budget hotel, it would be a good idea to even brush your teeth with bottled water.
  • Try and avoid street food, no matter how tempting it looks. Most types of street food can give you the 'loosies' (unless you have a cast iron stomach like mine!), but you should particularly stay away from uncooked street foods such as juices, salads, bhel, chaat, etc.
  • Check if any vaccinations have been prescribed before travelling to a particular country and make sure you take them before you go.
  • Always remember to wash your hands before you eat anything.
  • Carry some regular over-the-counter medicines such as Anacin, Crocin and Aspirin so that you can deal with niggling pains and headaches when on vacation.
  • Buy travel health insurance before you go so if you do happen to fall ill, at least you will have the resources you need to get treatment.
