Medication is one of the most important items to pack when traveling, especially if traveling to foreign destinations or places where a trip to the pharmacy may require basic knowledge of another language. Therefore, packing medicines is a must, but tossing a few pills into a zip-top plastic bag isn’t always the safest and smartest way to travel with meds.

 

A company called PrimeMed creates curated packs with Medique medications, one of which is called the Goodbye Headaches and Allergies carry-along medicine pack and includes 10 single-use packs of medication that can help alleviate the symptoms of headaches and common allergies.

 

The kit includes two packets each of the following: Diphen (an antihistamine similar to Benadryl, 25 mg per tablet, one tablet per package); Loradamed (a non-drowsy medicine for upper respiratory allergies, 10 mg per tablet, one tablet per package); aspirin (325 mg per tablet, two tablets per package); non-aspirin (also known as acetaminophen, a pain reliever and fever reducer, 325 mg per tablet, two tablets per package); and ibuprofen (a pain reliever, fever reducer and swelling reducer, 200 mg per tablet, two tablets per package).

 

Medique is a brand that sells FDA-approved medicines for worry-free travel, ensuring you’ll never run out of the over-the-counter medicines you may need in case of emergency.

 

The 10 individually sealed, foil packages are TSA-approved and clearly labeled for easy access. The kits can be purchased on Amazon.com for $6.99.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
