My aim was to try and travel as light as possible and I found a mantra that really kept me on track. My mantra was “FRAN, remember you have to carry this!!”. Keep saying this and you wont believe the amount of stuff you start taking out. LOL

Health Products:

Ok, I have always taken supplements and personally notice a difference especially because I am gluten and dairy intolerant and I also find it hard to digest large meals and certain food combinations. However I would recommend however to take a good probiotic to support your stomach. Your going to a different part of the world your body isn’t accustomed too so its a good idea to support it.

Also going to a very hot and humid country I would recommend a multivitamin along with electrolytes to keep your body hydrated.

  1. Oxylent Multivitamin (30 day supply)
  2. Nutri Similase Digestive Enzyme
  3. BIO-KULT Probiotics
  4. Terranova Antioxidant Supplements
  5. x2 Jungle Formula Insect Repellent
  6. x2 Environ RAD Face Sun cream
  7. x1 Avene 50+ Body Sunscreen
