With my next exciting adventure on the horizon, I have now started to think about what supplies I’ll need to take with me. One of these supplies will be a First Aid Kit, but there is so much to think about.
Whilst out exploring, whether it be in Asia, America, Europe or some other wonderous land, there is a chance that you may take a tumble, resulting in bumps and bruises. To help heal these boo boos, you want to make sure you have supplies, things that get you back to full power, A.K.A a First Aid Kit.
You’re probably thinking, “I’m invincible, I can handle anything”. To this all I can say is there is no harm in being prepared.
Lets begin… There are several ready-made First Aid Kits on the market. These kits range in size and price, typically containing plasters/band-aids, bandages, gauze, sterile dressings, micropore tape, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, scissors, insect bite (antihistamine) cream, saline, and paracetamol (painkiller).
This is all good and well for those of you who want something ready made, but one thing to bear in mind is that these kits are often expensive, and a lot of the items go to waste. Don’t get me wrong these kits are good for those who are going off the grid… are you planning to disappear? Some adventures do take you off the beaten path… Yes in this case you may find one of these kits useful, well maybe one of the more comprehensive kits.
Let me tell you what my favourite part of these kits is… any guesses? My favourite part is the bag/pouch that these supplies come in… Later I’ll tell you what I would take with me.
