  1. My husband thought I was crazy when I packed such a solid first aid kit for our RTW trip. We are now 3 weeks in and I have used it several times (mostly because I am accident-prone!). But you have some good ideas here that I didn’t include, so looks like I need to buy a few more things! Ceetab seems like a must!

  2. These are really good tips. Sometimes you think you will not get sick or eat too much, but it’s happens more often than we think it will. I would rather have the medication on me than trying to find in in a foreign country, when you are not feeling to good!

  3. I always carry the standard ‘international’ first aid with bandages and band-aids etc, but never added tablets or drugs to them as they not part of the first aid kit. However, I would carry some of these drugs when I do long distance trips, I just carry them in a different pocket in my backpack 😀 Great advice here. 😀

    1. It’s always useful to have them. My girls and I just went on a long trip around Europe and even though we are seasoned travelers— we did get sick every now and then. It helped that we had meds with us.

  4. I recently did a super detailed guide to what I pack in my first aid kit, but the Ceetab wasn’t on my list. I’ve never heard of that but it sounds absolutely wonderful! I learned from a long trip abroad without cold and flu medicine (I was sick the whole time) that packing a thorough First Aid Kit is super important!

  5. Thanks for the great list of items to pack in a first aid kit! We need to make one for ourselves, so this is a great reminder! We always seem to forget to pack a first aid kit so we have random medicines from all over–would be great to avoid the hassle and just bring them with!

  6. Very helpful post. I always bring medicines whenever I travel. Just to make sure, I have something to drink in case something wrong happen. And Yes Vit C is so important. We should carry it during our travel to strengthen our immune system.
