One of the biggest things that Dave and I always struggle with is over packing our first aid kit. You just never know what you are going to need, but at the same time, we hate carrying too much stuff.
A lot of travelers including ourselves tend to go a little overboard when it comes to carrying medication. In the past, we have carried a small pharmacy and it has driven me insane. At the same time, we really do need to be prepared for any situation. So how does one find balance?
Malaria – Malarone – Luckily, we are pretty well set when it comes to our prescription medication. We have a tonne of Malarone left over from Africa for Malaria. We haven’t overly worried about Malaria in the past, but when traveling Africa, it is not something to play with. And since we have a lot left over, we are set. In the past we have used doxicycline.
Altitude – Apo-Acetazolamide – We like to climb things and we always take altitude medication with us. We have some of that left over as well from Africa so we can check that off of the list.

I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
