Traveling First Aid Kit - TIPS by Archaeologous
FIRST AID KIT travel packing list for safe travels
Hopefully this general list offered by archaeologous.com will give you an idea of what to pack for your health and safety while traveling to a new country. Disregard the non-relevant ones for you, and use this as your template to add more of your own ideas.
Remember, you’ll be in a new country when vacationing in Greece and/or Turkey and it is much easier to have everything with you rather than doing the search and not speaking the language on top of it.
NOTE: In case of travel delays, which we all know can happen, remember to pack a little extra of the most needed health supplies.
First-Aid Kit (if liquid must be in allotted regulation airline size)
~~ Your personal medications
~~ Any vitamins/herbs you normally take
