Making Healthy Travel Happen

When preparing for a trip, you have many things to plan - transportation, accommodations and itinerary. But many overseas travelers don't think about one of the most basic things of all - good health.

The best way to avoid illness when traveling is to take adequate preventive measures before you leave. Adequate preparation is important in marinating good health overseas, especially if you are travelling off the beaten path.
