Not the prettiest picture, or the most fun part of packing, but the most important: our off-road first aid kit. I'm spending the month of February in India, with over 1/2 that time traveling through Rajasthan on scooters. Although most overnight stops will be in cities, we will have days of traveling in our own with little access to supplies. In this one wee zipper bag I've managed to fit: painkillers (standard paracetamol and ibuprofen); sudafed and lemsip for the obligatory cold; alcohol swabs, bandaids, large dressings and an ace bandage; immodium, zantac, tums and rehydration salts, for all the new spicy foods; sudacream, neosporin, antibiotic cream and pills; benadryl for unknown allergens; and voltarin gel with my resistance bands for neck/shoulder muscle spasms. Dr Burts Healing ointment will be going in my backpack. Whew! We've both also spent the past six weeks updating all our vaccinations: my rabies series, typhoid jab, hepatitis A, and diphtheria/tetanus/polio updates cost me £276, but just might save my life, so totally worth it. Stay safe out there, folks!
More prep photos on their way soon; India bound on Sunday!
