Regardless of the type of medical condition that a person has, there are some simple and effective ways to improve overall health when traveling for pleasure or business. For example, carrying an adequate amount of medication that includes extra medication is important especially if a return trip home is delayed intentionally or unintentionally. Anytime a trip is extended for some reason it is always a good idea to have additional medication ready and available.
Proper Medical Treatment Is Provided When Necessary
In addition, it is always a good idea to carry medication in a carry-on suitcase as opposed to checking it with checked baggage. However small the risk, there are always a chance that luggage could become lost or stolen. Equally important is to consider wearing a medical alert device or something similar. Letting others know your particular medical condition is critical to ensuring that the proper medical treatment is provided when necessary. Another thing that should be considered with regard to traveling safely with a medical condition is to always carry basic medical information on your person.
List Of Allergies And Current Illnesses
Even if someone is wearing a medical alert device identifier it is a good idea to have other additional information in a wallet or briefcase. This would include information such as health insurance data, travel insurance information and name and dosages of particular types of medication. In addition, a list of allergies and current illnesses as well as primary physician contact information should all be made readily available. This information can be vitally important if someone were to become ill or incapacitated while on a vacation or a business trip.
Doctor’s Letter Detailing Specifics Of An Implanted Medical Device
Another great idea is to consider carrying travel type medical insurance with pre-existing type coverage. This is a smart way to protect from the unexpected while traveling abroad or even within your own country. Finally, it is recommended to carry a doctor’s letter any time an individual has some type of implanted medical device. From monitors to pacemakers and other types of similar internal devices, having a doctor’s letter that details the specifics of an implanted medical device can only work to a patient’s advantage.

Traveling virtually anywhere in the world today requires having an appreciation for the proper management and handling of money. That said there are a few essential Money tips for travelers that everyone should consider when traveling locally or across the globe. For example, common strategies that should be implemented when traveling include always having a backup credit card just in case others fail. Equally important is to avoid keeping money in one place when traveling.
Another great idea is to cover the keypad when entering a pin number at an ATM machine. Just as important is to consider contacting your primary bank and letting them know you will be traveling so that your cards will not become locked out unexpectedly. Perhaps one of the best ways to gain access to cash while traveling is to use ATM machines. Many consider ATMs to be one of the easiest ways to access foreign currency when traveling abroad. It is typically safer to use local currency than it is to use credit cards while traveling.
Local Currency And Cash Is Usually The Best
This is especially true considering the fact that many credit card companies will apply an additional fee to use a card overseas or in another country. Currency conversion surcharges can mount quickly and cost a traveler a large amount of money over the long run. While a credit card may be ideal for making reservations, local currency and cash is usually the best option for spending money while on vacation. Finally, it is always a good idea to convert all local currency back into US currency prior to leaving your preferred vacation destination to return home.
Having Peace Of Mind While On Vacation
Most would agree that with modern technology managing money while on vacation has become easier and less stressful. However, following these simple tips and strategies can go a long way in making any vacation far more enjoyable and less stressful. Having peace of mind while on vacation can only add to the overall enjoyment that one expects to have while traveling. As an added note, traveler’s checks are not as common as they once were. That is why acquiring local currency while on vacation is still the best option.

This celebration has its origin in the prehispanic period (in indigenous civilizations like the Aztecs, Mayas, Purepecha, Nahua and Totonac) which is characterized by the Mexican humor in the face of death.
The popular belief says that the souls of loved ones who went away return from the afterlife on the Day of the Dead, for what their families have to receive them with an offering (Altars of the Dead) where it is placed their favorite food, the delicious ‘pan de muerto’ – bread of the dead – (its ingredients vary by region but the most popular is round, covered with strips of white sugar simulating bones), fruit, sugar skulls, liquor, flowers (the color of death in the prehispanic Mexico was the yellow flower why the flower that is used by tradition in this festivity is the cempasuchil flower), photographs and in the case of children, toys.
An important part of this tradition implies visiting cemeteries where the relatives come to clean the graves, carrying candles, flowers and even many carry food and music groups to spend all day with their faithful departed.
Another of the main elements of this festivity is the popular “Catrina” is a skull wearing different clothes as a sign of the presence of death in all the everyday. Likewise we also have the literary skulls that are rhymed verses that satirize situations of popular characters using the theme of death with a humorous intention.

Defining Sustainable Tourism
Sustainable tourism comes down to the concept of visiting a location as tourist and having only a positive impact on the society, economy, and environment of your destination. Those dedicated to sustainable tourism want to make the world better through travel. This takes a commitment not just from tourist themselves, but from the locations they are visiting. By working together, we can help ensure that beautiful places like Mazatlán will be around for generations to come.
Preserving Coastal Beauty
One of the primary tenants of sustainable tourism is preserving the environment. This means holding on to the incredible coastal beauty of Mazatlán. To do this, we want to keep our beaches as clean as possible. We encourage every guest to pick up after themselves when they visit our beautiful sunny beaches. Leave the beach in better condition than when you found it! We also need to take care of our ocean. When you are out boating, don’t throw trash into the water, and follow local fishing regulations. The ocean is a delicate eco-system, which we all need to work together to preserve.
The World Tourism Organization, which supports sustainable tourism, also makes it a goal to preserve cultural resources and traditions. The unique and incredible cultures around the world make tourism the awesome experience that it is. When tourist interact with cultures, the UNTWO encourages them to learn from those cultures, and do everything they can to support them.

Did you know? Thanksgiving Day is a traditional celebration in the United States and Canada where family and friends gather around a feast to commemorate this special day; although it is true that traditions are very similar in both countries, here we list some of the differences:
The first difference is found in the day, since in the United States is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November and on the other hand in Canada it was established that would be the second Monday of October, as their geographic location in Canada the harvests are collected very early.
Canadian families often gather in their homes to taste between family and friends a delicious menu where could not be absent the famous turkey served in red cranberry sauce, servings of vegetables, green peas, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes; in some houses before dinner a prayer of thanks is performed. Special features of the Canadian menu are the desserts, which is very common to find apples or pumpkin pies.
Moreover in Canada very interesting activities are realized like the recreation of an authentic meal of Thanksgiving of 1800, where turkeys and pumpkin pies contests are organized. The “Share Thanksgiving” movement that aims to show to all foreigners living in Canada the origin and meaning of this holiday is carried out.
While it is true that each person can give different sense to this holiday, the “Thanksgiving Day” is the perfect occasion to thank regardless of religion or belief, language or origin, ideologies or boundaries. Simply give thanks for what we have and the opportunities that we have provided.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all our friends who have the privilege of living in this beautiful country!
