September 27 is World Tourism Day.
Did you know that the most commonly forgotten item for travellers is their toothbrush? I always put that item as well as any other personal hygiene and sun protection in my carry one that way if they lose my baggage, I still have everything I need to survive while they are found. Often hotels markup these every day items because they know you can’t go without.
Another important thing that people often dismiss is vaccines. We live in a global world, and diseases that were once on the way out in Canada are now popping up again.Recent Canadian measles outbreaks were brought into our country because of travel. This shows us that we need to keep our vaccines up to date until measles has been wiped out worldwide.
Also be mindful when you travel. Some attractions aren’t worth it especially when these attractions are animals.
