How do you make traveling more fun?

Take Frequent Breaks

It may be tempting to just drive for hours and hours on a car trip. Be sure to stop every 1-2 hours to stretch your legs, get some water and food into you, and rest your eyes. The eye strain and fatigue can catch up with you suddenly.

   
What if I run out of a prescription drug while traveling?

Generic Drugs

If you or a family member are taking prescription drugs, be sure to take along the prescription and the part of the packaging showing the generic rather than the brand name.

   
How long should you wait to fly after a dentist appointment?

How can I protect against germs in public restrooms?

Strange Critters You Can't See

When stopping at a rest stop or other public restroom, use the seat protectors if available. If there are no seat protectors, place toilet tissue on the seat. Don't touch door handles, flush levers, or faucet handles with your bare hands--use a paper towel or toilet tissue to protect your hands. There are oodles of germs in public restrooms so you really can't be too careful.
