What to Pack: First Aid Checklist

 

Whenever I travel for work or play, I always carry a travel first aid pack with me.

Just the essentials. This care-pack means that if anything icky strikes, I don't have to lumber to a pharmacy in the dead of night, or play charades with a night concierge to explain my child has an earache! Or throwing up (or worse!).

Print this out and use it as a checklist for your next trip.
