You’re sitting in on an oakwood seat, gazing at the salt water sea with a towel over your knee. In your left hand is a Mai Tai and your partner is smiling back at you. You just ate lunch at a fabulous luxury restaurant in Mexico. Everything is perfect, you’re living in luxury and travelling the world until you feel your stomach churning. You’ve just caught the bug!
Many people get in touch with a luxury travel agency, book their flight or cruise and then go on to try some exotic new foods. Trying different foods is worth your travel experience but doing it safely is crucial. To make sure you stay healthy while abroad follow these 3 tips!
If you are planning to eat from a street cart make sure you eat where everyone else is eating. The longer a meal sits the more likely it is to upset your stomach. Try asking the receptionist or concierge at your resort where to eat. They will know the best and safest spots for tourists to grab a bite!
Lots of bacteria that your body isn’t used to can be found in water across the globe. Every government treats their water differently, and because you are not a local it is more likely to upset your stomach. This doesn’t mean you have to go thirsty throughout your trip! Buy tons of bottled water, or boil your water before you drink it, and you’ll be safe to paint the town!
Always be sure to use well packaged condiments. Ketchup is great when it’s been sealed well, but if it’s open and you’re on the road it’s best to avoid. Look for familiar brands like Heinz and Miracle Whip so you can forget about catching any bugs! Alternatively, avoid condiments that aren’t refrigerated, and stick to restaurants with proper cooling solutions.
