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 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.

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 if you’re in a mosquito habitat – bites can cause a range of nasty illnesses.

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.
