I am not the most prepared mom. I never carried a diaper bag with all the essentials; more like the bare necessities in a regular looking travel type bag. It sufficed! A few years ago, we were in Mexico and my daughter fell and cut her leg pretty badly. I was freaking out that she’d catch something bad since it was on a city street. We found a pharmacy, cleaned her up, and hoped for the best. She is still with us and there was no MRSA as a souvenir or anything else. 2 days ago while I was supposed to be prepping my 1st aid travel kit, I read a blog post about it instead and so I’m doing it today. I’m trying to be more prepared. Although we are trekking in civilization, it’s just easier with your own supplies and a game plan. Headaches are par for the course so it’s best to have a little forethought and English language medication to dispense to whomever.
