I try use the same techniques to stay healthy if travelling or not.
Of course, it feels like I am not as in control of my environment, so getting worn down, may mean me getting sick on the road.
A few days ago, I wrote about eating while travelling. This is a big one for health.
Of course, all the best preparations won’t matter sometimes. You might get sick, especially if you travel long-term.
I’ve gotten sick many times on long-term trips (India, Poland, New Zealand, Romania). This forced me to slow down, take care of myself, and a few times goto a local doctor to get some medications to help. That in of itself was an interesting and learning experience and it is different from the USA, and much less expensive.
Getting sick while traveling can ruin a trip, so answer one or all:
What are your tricks for staying healthy (while traveling or in general)?
QUESTION 2: H
ave you ever gotten really sick while traveling and how did it affect your trip?
Have you learned any strange or new cures from your travels (or does your family have any non-traditional sickness remedies you grew up with)?
