As much as I love to travel, I'm not the best traveler. Apparently I'm delicate and that translates to gastro and sleep issues that annoy me because I'm not as tough as I'd like to believe.
Because I've been taken down on prior trips, I carry a small apothecary in my travel kit; my arsenal against any assault on my system.
I've also learned the hard way, (which seems to be my way), that despite my desire to go until I drop, my best defense is down time. A good book, air conditioning and a comfy bed to recline upon is my restorative, followed by a good, strong cup of black tea.
