5 Ways to Stay Healthy Ashore

Sponsored by TravelKatz, LLC


BEFORE YOU GO Make sure your immunizations are up to date for the destinations you’re visiting and have a flu jab if you’re flying anywhere. Ask your doctor or local travel clinic for advice. Travel insurance with good medical cover is essential.

PACK FACE MASKS, WIPES, AND HAND SANITIZER:   These are useful when soap and water aren’t available. Keeping your hands clean helps prevent the spread of germs and bacteria – and it should go without saying that you wash or clean your hands before eating and after using the toilet.  Most destinations will require some type of face covering in 2021.

PROTECT AGAINST BURNS AND BITES:   Remember you can get sunburnt on cloudy days in hot countries; wear a hat, apply SPF30 sunscreen and reapply after swimming. Use a personal insect repellent to protect against mosquitoes and other biting insects – bites can cause a range of nasty illnesses or infections.

HYDRATE:   Keep up your water intake when out and about especially in hot climes; symptoms of dehydration include headaches, dizziness and exhaustion, none of which you want to interfere with your precious holiday.

WATCH WHAT YOU EAT:  Keep it light. Undercooked seafood and unwashed vegetables and fruit could put you at risk for gastroenteritis, hepatitis A and even typhoid. Tap water in some countries can make you ill; BYO bottled water (in a refillable bottle) and don’t have ice in your drinks.


TravelKatz® Vacation Testimonials

I accompanied a group of 12 to Alaska this past summer.  We flew into Seattle, saw some of the sights, and then flew to Juneau to start our Adventure Cruise.  What a wonderful Adventure. We saw glaciers, hump-back whales and other fascinating things...we would do this again. Thank you for such a great time!

Sandy H, St Petersburg, FL

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did organizing our trip. It absolutely was the best vacation I have ever had. This was my first time over seas and what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am going through “James” withdraw today. He was an amazing tour guide and fit in so well with our group. I will definitely recommend you if I know of anyone thinking of going over to Ireland. Your country is so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Jack & JoAnn Douglass, Miami, FL

I appreciated all the information that was given before I left on the trip. Our Guide, Jerry filled in all the other interesting information on what to expect. I felt safe, well feed and learned so much from a trip 45 mins from USA…I want people to see the beauty of the country, the people and their wonderful culture. I so loved the music. I am playing the CD’s often that I bought from the musicians. A trip I would like to do again. Thank you.
