I like to be prepared for everything and that's amplified x1000 when I'm overseas. This is what I pack as my first aid kit in my suitcase just in case, and I carry a mini version around with me during the day.
- Band-aids, pain killers, travel sickness medication - pretty self explanatory.
- Antihistamines - I get really bad allergies, not just in spring, so I try to take enough to last the whole trip.
- Gastro-stop - I feel like it's always a risk of eating anything overseas, but I've never actually had to take these; fingers crossed my luck doesn't run out.
- Sports tape - bit pointless but just in case I want to tape my dodgy knee for anything. I'm more likely to use this to fix other objects, it's really sticky.
This is a scheduled post, I'm currently overseas. I'll be reading all your comments via email but won't be able to reply until I get back. If you have any burning questions, you can email me.
