Travelling to that Exotic Third World Destination to Escape the Irish Winter ?

Travelling to that Exotic Third World Destination to Escape the Irish Winter ?

In the good old days travelling to escape the wet Irish winter was a luxury for most people. However fast forward the clock and the world today is a smaller place than it once was, and travel abroad is now affordable for us, the masses.

We think it is fair to say that the Irish are an adventurous race and exotic travel is both no longer out of reach and is on many of our wish lists.

The Importance of Planning and Preparation for that trip !

On the one hand going to Europe, for example,  is quite easy to plan for from a health and safety perspective , as there is the security net of the countries in question generally being western style destinations.

On the other hand going to that exotic destination in a developing world is a different kettle of fish, and just winging it and traveling without planning and preparation is foolhardy in the extreme

The University of Maryland medical center has a helpful page online for Travelers who plan to visit developing or tropical countries , (as well as those embarking on prolonged vacations or arduous treks). consisting of An in-depth report on travel-related health risks and how to prepare ahead of time to reduce these risks.

You can click the link below for great advice on Medical Preparation for that trip to the exotic third world destination which covers, immunizations, Preventative Recommendations, water and food precautions and more including “to the point “reference guides to diseases and infections

Obviously, as we are in the business of selling first aid products what caught our attention was that they recognize first aid supplies are relevant, see below

First Aid Kits

First aid supplies for travelers should include:

  • Sunblock (15 SPF or higher)
  • Topical (skin) disinfectants
  • Bandage materials
  • Insect repellent
  • Thermometer
  • Any prescription drugs you take regularly
  • Antifungal foot powder
  • Hydrocortisone cream for rashes
  • Loperamide (Imodium) for diarrhea
  • Pepto-Bismol for diarrhea
  • Devices or supplies to purify or filter water
  • Nonprescription pain reliever

Note: Acetaminophen, the generic name for Tylenol, is known as paracetamol outside the United States.



Hygiene can always be a problem with hands and surfaces,where germs and bacteria thrive, so we would recommend hand wipes.

Plasters being so lightweight for carrying, we would view as a must.

If activities are part of the holiday we would recommend bringing muscle treatment products.

Really you can easy tailor what you believe would be of benefit should you have the misfortune of bad luck….so be prepared, and check out our Store and its categories.
