Respecting animals during our travels

In my last blog I wrote about regrets I had regarding activities involving animals during the roadtrip my son and I took through Thailand. And I really want to tell you about respecting not only the people that live in the countries that you’re visiting, but also the animals that live there.

Roadtripping through Thailand solo with kids

A lot of people with kids want to go on a roadtrip outside of their country or continent but aren’t sure if it’s a good idea. Will there be internet (preferably wifi), will the kids like the food, what’s the quality of medical care, is it safe enough for a family trip? They have loads of questions. But the bottom line is: if you want to do it and know your kids good enough to know that they can handle it (kids with certain special needs might need some extra attention or guidance during trips), then go for it! That also applies to single parents. You won’t regret it. Believe me.

Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik

A few weeks ago my friend JH and I went to Dubrovnik. That immediately brings me to my first tip: if you want to avoid visiting this beautiful town along with 10.000 others, but also have moderately good weather, you should go in April. It was still busy during the first weekend of April, but there wasn’t a cruise ship in sight and we didn’t have to wait in line for a table or any of the sights.

I will blog about the must-sees in Dubrovnik at a later time. This blog is meant for Game of Thrones fans or enthousiasts.

Travelling with medication that falls under the Opium Act

This is not a blog that will lure you into booking your next trip. And it could be one you will skip because it doesn’t apply to you. But this post can be useful for a lot of people. It’s about bringing medication along with you on a trip. We all bring medication along. The most popular ones being paracetamol and melatonine. You can easily take those abroad and customs won’t even blink.

Unfortunately some of us (or our relatives) have to take medication on a daily basis and that means taking it with you while traveling. In most cases it’s enough to go to your general practitioner or pharmacy and ask for a medication passport. But there are things you can’t take abroad without some sort of medical declaration.
