Dulcinea's Insight

  • Traveling off the beaten path is exciting, but if you're going abroad, especially if you're visiting Third World countries, be sure you have taken all the necessary health precautions. Be up-to-date with vaccinations, and prepare any gear and supplies you may need for your family.
  • Be sure everyone is up to date on vaccinations and you're aware of possible allergies in an unfamiliar environment. Bring along extra prescription medications, too, if you need them.
  • The Web is a great tool for the latest, most up-to-date information on everything from gear recalls to travel advisories. Use it to your advantage.
