Destination: Europe 10+ Countries' Tour '19
A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place.- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Europe is where some of the world’s greatest cultures and civilizations originated. It is a diverse and interesting place; with many of its mysteries still being discovered by modern day historians and archeologists. If you’re a Europhile who wants to know more about your favorite continent, then read the fun, yet interestingly amazing Europe facts on the next page.
35 Interesting Facts about Europe:
1. With a land area of only 4,000,000 square miles, Europe is the second smallest continent in the world, just behind Australia.
2. Despite its relatively small size, Europe is quite populous. It comes right after Asia and Africa in terms of population.
3. It might be the second smallest continent, but Europe is home to the largest country in the world. Russia is so big, in fact, that it takes up forty percent of Europe’s land area.
4. Europe was the main location of several historical periods that made a huge impact on the world like the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution.
5. When it comes to land area, Europe is only two percent bigger than Canada.
6. The etymology for the word “Europe” is uncertain up to the present time. Some people like to think that it came from Europa, one of Zeus’s many wives in Greek mythology.
7. The name “Europe” might have originated from the Greek word “eurus,” meaning wide or broad.
8. Aside from “eurus,” the Greek word for wide, Europe might have also come from the ancient Syrian word for sunset, “ereb.”
9. The first historians who first used “Europe” (or an ancient variant of the name thereof) as a geographical term was Hecataeus and Anaximander.
10. The boundary between Asia and Europe changed a lot during the course of history. Anaximander and Herodotus placed the boundary near the Phasis (modern day Rioni) river, while Roman era historians like Ptolemy and Strabo placed it near Tanais (modern day Don) river.
11. Europe is also called as Frangistan or “the land of the Franks” in the vernacular of some Turkic languages.
12. Some of the world’s greatest empires were founded on European land. This includes the ancient Roman Empire (the cradle of modern civilization, according to some historians), and then later on, the British, Spanish, and Russian Empires.
13. Aside from having the largest country in the world, Europe also has the smallest! The Vatican has a land area of only 0.44 square kilometers.
14. There are more than 250 distinct languages spoken in Europe.
15. The largest city in Europe is Istanbul, if transcontinental countries that straddle both Europe and Asia (like Turkey) is counted. Otherwise, Moscow is the largest, followed by Paris and London.
16. Europe is part of Eurasia, a giant continental landmass consisting both of Europe and mainland Asia.
17. Europe has many geopolitical divisions, some of which includes many countries that are more proximate to other continents. For example, Cyprus (which is nearer to West Asia) is considered as European. Sometimes, Israel can also be considered as part of geopolitical Europe as well.
18. While Greenland is closer to North America, it is still considered as part of Europe because it is a dependent territory of Denmark.
19. Transcontinental countries (i.e. countries that straddle both Asia and Europe), include Georgia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Russia, and Turkey.
20. The entirety of Portugal is in Europe, but it has an autonomous region (Madeira) near Africa, and another (Azores) near North America. This would make Portugal a tricontinental country since it has territories in three continents.
21. Europe’s largest active volcano is Mount Etna, located in Sicila, in the southern part of Italy. 22. Vatnajökull (or Vatna Glacier) is Europe’s largest glacier with an area of more than 8,000 square kilometers. Located underneath it are several volcanoes.
23. Evidence has shown that the Mediterranean Sea, which borders Europe, Asia, and Africa, have dried up several times in the past. This is called as the Messinian Salinity Crisis.
24. If transcontinental countries like Russia were not counted, Ukraine would be Europe’s largest country.
25. The idea to separate Europe and Asia (that both share a common landmass) came from the Greeks. The boundary was at Hellespont (modern day Dardanelles) a strait located in the northwestern part of Turkey.
26. Dardanelles (ancient name Hellespont), the strait that separates Europe from mainland Asia is very narrow. It’s only 1.2 to 6 kilometers wide.
27. Europe’s most visited tourist destination is not the Eiffel Tower or the Big Ben, but Disneyland in Paris.
28. Bulgaria is considered to be the oldest country on Europe, since the country’s name was virtually unchanged since 641 AD.
29. Europe’s largest country, Russia, is so vast, that there are literally thousands of uninhabited villages inside the country that were abandoned due to lack of development and infrastructure. 30. While Mount Etna is Europe’s largest volcano, Mount Vesuvius might be the most popular. This volcano, located east of Naples in Italy, is known for its eruption in AD 79 that destroyed Pompeii and other nearby areas. It is still an active volcano, so there’s a chance that it will erupt again in the future (though the specific time for this is uncertain).
31. History’s biggest empire was European. In its golden days, the British empire managed to cover one-fourth of the world’s territories.
32. The world’s largest colony of ants was found in Europe. This colony measured a whopping 6,000 kilometers long, and spanned all the way from near the Atlantic coast of Spain to the northern part of Italy.
33. There are around 730 million people living in Europe today. This figure constitutes about eleven to twelve percent of the world’s current population.
34. There is a period in European history that is still full of mystery and intrigue. Called the “Age of Migrations” this historical period happened when various tribes (Vandals, Lombards, Goths, Saxons, and Vandals) made their way to Europe, and was estimated to have ended around 500 AD. The reasons for this mass migration of tribes still remain unclear up to this very day, and there are very little written records about it.
35. A number of European countries have weird laws. For example, in Switzerland, it forbidden to flush the toilet after 10 in the evening. Also, the country forbids mowing the lawn and laundering clothes during Sundays. In France, there’s a law that bans people from naming their pet pigs “Napoleon.” In the United Kingdom, dying in the House of Parliament is illegal. Greece bans all forms of electronic games- not just gambling games- but also harmless ones like online chess, Solitaire, and most mobile games that you play on your phone.

Section 4: PERSONAL ASSISTANCE FOLLOWING A MEDICAL INCIDENT
Questions and answers pertaining to the trip.
1. Can we stop at interested (personal) places on the way?
Yes and No. We will have a set route with Main Stops and Designated pit stops. Eg. We will pass through Brussels, Belgium on the way to Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. If your stop is along our route and does not hamper the convoy, we can surely stop. If it will affect the convoy’s logistics in a negative way, we will not be able to accommodate you.
2. Do I have to have a Visa (depending on where the flights passing through)?
No, if you are a Trinidadian national with a Trinidadian Passport departing from Trinidad and Tobago, you do not need any form of Visa to travel in and out of the countries on our itinerary. Do ensure your passport will be valid for at least 6 months after the return date of the trip.
3. In what cities are the hikes?
The main hike is in Switzerland at the 2nd Main Stop (Vilter-Wangs). Please refer to itinerary.
4. After January, what are the payment plans for the balance of funds and deadline?
Refer to payment plans. After December, the package will cost more due to increase in airline ticket prices.
5. In what city will there be the "day for ourselves"?
After spending the afternoon (half day) in Berlin, on Sunday 15th September, 2019, we will drive to Frankfurt during the night. The “day for ourselves” will be in Frankfurt, Germany on Monday 16th September, 2019.
6. Will there be electricity on the campervan?
Yes, but it is limited therefore we must take others into consideration. You will need to purchase electrical converters from regular 110v to 220v.
7. Where will we be able to charge our electrical devices?
At the ‘aires’ (motor-home stopovers) and in the campervan. The camper will have electricity while in transit. The camper will also be plugged into the electrical supply from the aires allowing us to have electricity while parked at the aire. Voltage varies from aire to aire and some devices may take longer to charge completely. This we will have no control over however we will get to charge our devices.
8. How long is the longest flight and the longest land drive?
The longest straight flight is 10 Hours from Frankfurt to Tobago. The longest flying time in transit is about 16 hours. We have to fly from Trinidad to Tobago, wait for a bit, get lunch etc in Tobago, then check in, wait for 3 hours, then fly to Barbados on the Condor jet, wait in Barbados for 2 hours (may not get to leave the airport) then fly for 10 hours to Frankfurt, Germany. To allow comfort and less hassle, we will not take flights which are very close. This can cause stress and it is better to have time to relax, leaving room for flight delays etc rather than hurrying and missing flights. No one wants that. This flight from Tobago- Barbados- Germany takes place once a week!
9. What are the currencies used in those cities?
In most cities we will be using the Euro Currency.
In Switzerland we may use Euro Dollar or Swiss Francs (Swiss Currency).
10. Where will we be using the toilets and shower?
The camper is equipped with toilet, face basin and shower. The aim is to minimise the use of both because, we will have to empty the waste at the designated location at the aires. If you have to use it while on the road driving, you are free to do so. As such, we will be staying at aires on most nights of the trip where we will be able to use the toilet, shower, and address personal care matters. While touring during the days in various cities and locations, be smart and try to use the toilets at the attractions, restaurants and cafes you will visit.
11. I have never done a trip like this before. How will I know what to pack?
Upon making your payment of TTD$8,000.00 by January 31st 2019, you will receive a full packing guide on what to bring for the entire trip and how it will be utilized.
12. Which hotel will we be staying in?
We will not be staying in any hotels. This trip is a road tour of Europe hence the cost is lower than normal. You will be using the campervan (motor-home) as our accommodation as well as transport while in Europe except for the night of the 16th September 2019 where we will be staying at a hostel close to the airport.
13. What are the tours included in the package?
Please note, they are listed above.
14. Is food and drinks included in the package?
15. How many beds are there on the campervans?
4 as follows: 1 double decker at the rear of the camper ( single size 1 on top the other), one double bed above the driver and right side passenger area (bed for 2 persons, you may have to share with someone you do not know and 1, 2 person convertible bed which are the 4 seats to be used by the 4 passengers other than the one in front with the driver.
16. What if I don’t want to share a bed with anyone I do not know?
Based on the actual grouping of passengers on the trip, you will know everyone and already create some type of bond prior to leaving Trinidad. You will have to participate in at least 2 of the 3 events planned for meeting and bond prior to the trip. You may also be able to choose one of the double decker beds at the rear (based on the actual grouping of passengers in the camper which you will be assigned to).
17. What about personal hygiene, I can’t stand certain scents? What about doing laundry? Everyone is required to practice proper personal hygiene on this trip keeping in mind that they are not in their personal houses and among others. Be considerate of others. Bathe everyday when possible. Keep everything and everywhere clean. Everyone will also have 2 days to take out the garbage from their camper, sanitize the area and replace garbage bags etc. Some of the aires provide laundry services for free while others may have a price attached.
18. What would we be eating on this trip?
We firstly have to know ourselves and what we are capable of consuming. Know what you are allergic to etc. You are responsible for providing all your meals and drinks for the entire trip. Simple menus will be put together in time for the trip. Our meals are very important to us as we will be burning a lot of calories just to keep warm as well as while touring. In some of those big cities we will be walking for hours doing tours. Energy will be needed. You are also asked to start doing some endurance training and try to keep fit, as you will not want to keep back the crew. An example of a perfect meal which can be prepared in the camper is mashed potato (from flakes), fried/boiled sausage, and some form of vegetables.
19. Would I be required for any form of duty on the trip?
Yes. Photographer- everyone will have to take each other’s photos because selfies only will not do. Navigator- everyone will be required to keep the driver’s company at some point in time and assist with the navigation. Sanitisation personnel for 2 days. Everyone is responsible for keeping the camper clean and in same order which we collected it. Your job is to ensure that everyone maintains this for the assigned two days. Chef - We either prepare our meals for ourselves, if everyone decides to take turns in meal preparations. This will save us all time and money. We will all cooperate to get everything done.
20. Where will we sleep?
What about laundry? Toilets? Showers?
We will be spending most of the nights in our camper at motorhome stopovers. They go by different names in different countries however we will use the French name “Aires”. An aire is a place designated for the purpose of overnight stopping for recreational vehicles or motorhomes. Aires are usually operated by local authorities. These vehicles can stay over or longer depending on the terms and conditions specified on a sign by each locality. Parking is in accordance with local building codes and road traffic law. NB: The electricity output varies by amperage so research before plugging in. Aires vary and each can be different. They all offer different services therefore you must not expect the same amenities at each. A list of services offered at aires are listed below:
• Toilets & Showers
• Fresh water supply
• Chemical toilet
• Grey/ Freshwater Service Area
• Washer and Dryer
• Motorhome Parking and Service Station
• Swimming Pool
There must be consultation between an Ifit World Representative and yourself (the potential participant) prior to making down payment. All down payments are non-refundable. Payment information will be sent to you after the aforementioned consultation. Upon completion of full payment your itinerary and plane tickets will be sent to you via email or they can be printed and delivered to you, at an agreed time and place.
Everyone participating in this trip will be required to attend and participate in at least two (2) simulation events in Trinidad and Tobago. The cost of these simulation events must be covered by the participants and is not included in the package for the Tour of Europe. This is necessary in order to acquaint those traveling as well as a preparatory test for the long drives in Europe. One drive that is particularly long, is the drive from Paris (France) to Milan (Italy) which is approximately 10-12 Hours. There will be a 2 hour stop along this route followed by a drive for 7 hours to Rome (Italy).
This trip is not a service where you pay, get everything put in place, then are sent out to maneuver your way around. It’s a trip where we all become travel buddies and must cooperate with each other. One to two persons out of the six persons on each Campervan/Motorhome is required to be in possession of a valid manual driver’s permit for Trinidad and Tobago or Europe.
Drivers, who are also participants on the trip, are required to drive for the entire time in Europe once we are in possession of the campers. The driver must be at least 21 years old. The drivers must have been in possession of a Class III / Class B or comparable national driver’s license for at least one year, once the driver possesses the relevant local driver’s permit, Ifit World will cover the cost to acquire the International driver’s permit.
Mandatory Simulation events:
· Hike to Paria bay (2-3 Hours) Saturday 20th April 2019
· Cross Country Drive Around Tour of Trinidad in June 2019.

We will be embarking on a Euro Cross Countries' Tour. This means sitting for long hours.
WHAT ARE THE AFFECTS PROLONGED SITTING?
Research has linked sitting for very long periods of time to a number of health concerns and other health related issues. These concerns include obesity, heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes and more. These conditions are very prevalent in the trucking industry, and impact not only the driver’s health, but also their ability to stay on the road. As we are all aware, many of these conditions can lead to delays and disqualifications when a driver goes in for their re-certification exam so that they can stay driving.
Other issues can also develop. Did you know for example, that truck drivers can suffer more frequently from chronic leg pain, varicose veins and swelling in their legs as a result of sitting as much as they do? This is caused by something referred to as venous (veins) congestion or pooling of blood in the legs due to the lack of movement necessary to keep blood moving efficiently from your legs to your heart.
More acute medical problems can also be the result of prolonged sitting also. For example, sitting too long can lead to blood clots forming in your legs. These blood clots, also known as a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), will not only keep a driver out of work for at least two months (the waiting period associated with this condition in the medical guidance), but also they can be life threatening.
How about back pain? Back pain is also very much associated with sitting too much. Numerous studies show that sitting is actually more stressful on a person’s lower back than standing is (about 20% more stressful). As a matter of fact, the greatest reason associated with back pain in truck drivers, does not relate to heavy lifting on the job, but prolonged sitting and one other factor known as whole body vibration (from the truck engine).
WHAT CAN TRUCK DRIVERS DO TO DECREASE THE EFFECTS OF SITTING?
First and foremost make sure what you are sitting in is designed for prolonged use. Custom seats with good shock absorption features can reduce some of the negative effects of sitting, and also significantly decrease whole body vibration that is a contributing factor to so many medical conditions and problems. They can offer varying degrees of support for your back and neck and improve circulation in your legs through various adjustments and other features. If it’s a company truck there are still many things you can do to improve your seat. Using a low back support cushion or even a rolled up towel positioned to support the lower back can be a big help. A towel or a small pillow placed behind the neck can add support for your neck and upper back. Adjusting the seat height, seat back and distance from the pedals will allow you to conform to the ideal position, and also allow you to change the position a few times a day and provide some variation of the stress points that your body undergoes from sitting too long in one position. The simplest advice for combating the health risks of prolonged sitting for a driver is to stand up frequently. If it is stopping for lunch or to gas up, spend a minute or two extra, and at least walk around the rig before you get back in. If you have a little more time, do some exercises that help improve circulation, and that are good for back health. Things such as toe ups, stair steps, back bends etc. are some examples. If you can’t get out of the seat, you might have to become more creative however. Do some neck and shoulder stretches while you driver. Something simple that will allow you to maintain your focus on the road, such has simple head rotations and shoulder shrugs. Also, to decrease the risk of forming blood clots or a DVT in your legs, research has shown that even by taping your feet, such as tapping to music, you will increase circulation in your legs. Also watch your posture as you drive and avoid leaning into the wheel while driving. Don’t keep a wallet or anything lumpy in a back pocket as it can not only throw your spine out of alignment, but can lead to pressure on the nerves going into your legs (causing sciatica). Lastly, be sure to stay hydrated! Hydration might not seem related to sedentary lifestyle issues, but it is. To begin with it will help keep you spinal discs more healthy. Additionally, a steady intake of water will help maintain the balance of electrolytes in the human body as well as improve kidney function and counter act some of the other issues of sitting too long.

In addition, the USA authorities prohibit lighters of any type from being carried in checked baggage, hand baggage and on the traveller’s person. Please make sure that you do not bring a lighter on flights to or connecting through the USA. Rules on Liquids, Aerosols and Gels (LAG) The rules on liquids, aerosols and gels apply to all flights departing from airports in the European Union, Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, the USA and Canada. Please note that other countries outside the EU have also adapted their regulations to these rules. “Liquids, aerosols and gels” (LAGs) include pastes, lotions, liquid mixtures containing solids as well as the contents of pressurized containers such as toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrup, perfume, shaving foam or cream, and other items with a similar consistency. Restricted amounts of these may be taken into the aircraft cabin under the following conditions: Containers with liquids and similar products may only hold up to 100 ml (based on the maximum filling volume printed on the item) All of the individual containers must be transported together in a single, transparent and resealable plastic bag (e.g. standard "zip closure" bags) with a maximum capacity of one litre One bag per person The bag must be presented separately at the security checkpoint. We advise you to get these plastic bags in advance and pack the LAGs that you want to carry in your hand baggage before you leave home. Medication and special dietary products (e.g. baby food) needed on board during the flight can be carried outside the plastic bag. These items must also be presented at the security checkpoint. When asked to do so, passengers must be able to demonstrate that the LAGs are actually the items covered by the exemption (e.g. by showing a prescription for medication). If items and bags do not comply with the specified size, you will not be allowed to take them on board the aircraft. Duty Free items (such as beverages or cosmetic items) that were bought on the day of the flight in the airport Duty Free zone or on board an aircraft can be carried in a sealed bag, provided it contains the receipt or proof of purchase.

Ideal Way for Packing on This Trip
BACKPACKERS PACKING GUIDE FOR THE EURO TOUR
I wrote this backpacking Europe packing list because packing for travel can often be very difficult — especially for beginners. Many first-time travelers make the mistake of bringing way too much gear so that travel quickly becomes tiresome. It can also make you a bigger target for thieves because you’re not able to keep track of your belongings as well. This packing guide for Europe will help you know what type of clothes and gear you should bring, and also includes tips for packing light.
• Quick Tips for Packing Light
• Travel Clothing
• Travel Accessories and Travel Backpacks
• Travel Toiletries
• Electronics for Travel
• What Not to Bring
• Where to Buy Gear
First, I suggest limiting yourself to 13 lbs(6kg) worth of gear in your backpack(Hand Luggage).
Secondly, limit your checked in luggage when packed must not exceed 44lbs(20kg).
If you exceed 13lbs (6kg) and 44lbs(20kg) respectively, you run the risk of exceeding the carry-on weight limit which is very costly.
SPECIAL NOTE – LOOKING GOOD VS. PACKING LIGHT
• You want to look good in Europe, I understand. Europeans are known for being super fashionable and you want to be the same. It just isn’t practical to wear really nice clothes as a backpacker on a cross continent tour. You have limited space in your bag, so it doesn’t make sense to pack an outfit that you’re only going to wear once. This doesn’t mean you have to look like a slob. It is really simple to look presentable as long as you pack items that look good when worn with each other.
• Cut the Clothing:
Pretty much all the weight in your backpack comes from your clothes. Most inexperienced travelers bring way too much. There isn’t really any difference between packing for 2 weeks and packing for 2 months because you’ll do laundry just about every 3-4 days. You’re only going to have a few shirts/pants, so make sure they all match each other. Choose dark and neutral colors (dark colors hide dirt/stains better than light colors). Most Europeans tend to wear more subdued clothing anyway.
• If it is going to be cold, you should dress in layers.
A big bulky coat isn’t going to be practical (unless you’re going somewhere extremely cold). A thermal base layer, long-sleeve t-shirt, sweater, and fleece jacket combo is much more practical than a big coat. You can always add/subtract layers if needed.
• Cut the Toiletries:
Liquids/gels/etc. weigh a lot.
Limit yourself to the very basics.
EUROPE BACKPACKER PACKING LIST:
NOTE: YOU WILL BE ALLOWED: 1 PIECE: 6KG & 1 PIECE 20KG
PLEASE PACK AND WEIGH YOUR 2 PIECES ON A DIGITAL SCALE A COUPLE DAYS PRIOR TO DEPARTURE.
• 5-7 Pairs socks
1 Sleeping bag or (a bed sheet and a blanket)- This is because the campers do not come with bed sheets, blankets and pillows.
Neck pillow(It will double as your pillow to sleep in the camper and on the plane. This does not go in your luggage. It goes around your neck while checking in at the counter.
• 5-7 pairs underwear
• 1 pair comfortable sneaker which will be good for touring and exploring during the day as well as look good at night if going out.
• cheap pair of rubber flip-flops
• 2 Shirts -Versatile, non-wrinkle, dark colour easy to wash tops
• 1 Sweater
• 4 Tshirts
• 1 pair jeans
• 1 pair neutral/dark color chinos (light-weight cotton) long pants
• Rain Jacket: A rain jacket is nice to have. We recommend getting a lightweight jacket that can be easily packed away.
• Sun glasses
• Warm Gloves
• Travel Backpack / Small Suitcase to pack all of the above
• Small backpack for daily trips and getting around
• A quick-drying travel towel is a must because a normal towel takes hours to dry
• A small flash light
• A handheld notebook and 2 pens
• Eye mask for sleeping on trains/planes/camper/hostels because it isn’t always easy to fall asleep
• Earplugs are nice too (especially if there is someone who snores in the camper
• Water bottle- flexible ones are greater or even a camel pack
• Utensils for eating
• Toothbrush with cover & Small toothpaste
• Photocopies of all travel documents
• Zip-lock bags
• Travel laundry soap
• Lint roller(if needed)
• Outlet plug adaptors (Euro Wall – USA Device)
• Plug Adaptor with USB Ports
• 2 Rechargeable Portable Power for your devices (20000mAh or more each)
• Digital Camera with extra memory cards
• Portable External Hard-drive
• Laptop and Charger(if you desire) to be carried in hand luggage
• Tablet loaded with movies music for long haul trips via air and land
• Stainless Steel Plate, cup.
• WEIGH BAGS AT HOME THEN FULL IT UP WITH FOOD ITEMS IF YOU HAVE SPACE.
Try minimizing the number of toiletries you bring because liquids add a ton of weight. Don’t forget that you can buy pretty much anything once you’re in Europe.
Here is a general list of things you might want:
• Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash: Pack small quantities in travel sized bottles for 2 weeks.
• Shaving Stuff (Razors & Cream): You can find pretty much the exact same products abroad but razors do seem to be a lot more expensive in Europe.
• Chapstick w/Sunscreen
• Contact Lenses/Solution/Glasses: Contact solution is actually a pain to buy becuase it’s normally only sold in pharmacies. Plus it isn’t cheap.
• Condoms: Some souvenirs are no fun… so it’s better safe than sorry.
• Travel Toilet Paper: You never know when you’ll need a bit of toilet paper so it’s good to carry some travel toilet paper as you travel.
• Wet Wipes/Baby Wipes: These are a lifesaver when you actually need them
• Hand Sanitizer:
• Body Powder: A lot of people start chafing after they walk a lot — especially if it is really hot. Anti Monkey Butt is great for those hot days.
• Skin and Foot Cream
• Pepto Tablets: Traveling can take a toll on your stomach
• Band-Aids: They’re nice to have on hand. A lot of people will develop blisters on their feet so we recommend Band-Aids for feet.
• Pain Medicine: In much of Europe, over-the-counter pain medicine (even basic stuff like Tylenol) is only from a pharmacy. This isn’t a big problem but it’s nice to have a little on hand.
• Migraine and Sinus Medication for those who suffer from these.
• Imodium – consuming food and drinks in other countries you can get diarrhea
• Prescription Drugs: Ensure you have the original bottle/box in case you’re asked to prove the medicine is yours. Make sure you have enough medicine to cover your entire trip since it might be hard to get any refills.
