What should you take with you on an oversees trip?
I'm not talking about packing things, I'm wondering more about the documentation and safety precautions you will need to be prepared for.
I would take a list of my medical doctors including medical/insurance carrier and emergency contacts. I'm friends with my neighbours so I'd give them my itinerary and keys to my home. Hope this helps....
medicines which you suit your body and which may not be available abroad, legal documents and additional copies of the same, soft copies of all documents saved, a means to get cash through banks in the country of visit. Rest all can be managed even in the worst of situations but even if one of the above goes missing, you may be in a deep hole.
I keep scanned copies of my passport, itineraries, insurance etc. saved on my Google Documents. That way if I lose anything crucial I can print off a copy from wherever I am.
If you ask me then I will keep my cell phone first lolzz.. Now days so spectacular cell phones and mobiles are being invented that they make your time passes with ease. Now motorola is coming in this game as well. If you want to read, then read my article at Cell Phones Blog (www.cellphonesattraction.com)
You might want to get a world phone because your cell phone will most likely not recieve a signal there.
Keep a list on you of:
-drugs you are taking
-your blood type
-who to contact in case of emergency
In case of an emergency, the medical team will know who to contact and what meds not to give you to avoid a bad reaction with something you're already taking.
I would also take a copy of a living will/medical power of attorney in case of emergency. You could call a travel agent or the State Department and see what they recommend. Have a great trip.
Definitely Travel & Medical Insurance. Never travel without those or you'll be screwed. Plus keep scanned copies of your travel documents like your passport, your tickets etc. Also take emergency numbers of your next of Kin or anyone close to you in case of any problems.
If you are going somewhere that is at a high altitude, ask your doctor for a prescription for dioxin to counter-act the effects of altitude sickness. It is TERRIBLE! I wrote about it in this hub. Happy travels!
