First aid kit – travel edition

No matter where I’m travelling to or for how long I’m going, I always take with me my version of a medicine kit. Except of medicines that I know work for me I also bring some other items that might come in handy.

My kit is very small, so I usually have most of it in my bag for the convenience of using it and always having it on hand. Also, to make it this small I take out the medicines out of their boxes and bring only the amount I think is fit for a given trip.

Obviously, what I consider a necessity others might not, that’s why you should always customise people’s ideas of an ‘emergency kit’.

Below you will find a list of things that can be found in my kit.


My first aid kit:

  • Cold medicine (to drink) – Apap przeziębienie
  • Cold medicine (pill) – Gripex Max
  • Tablets for a sore throat – Strepsils Intensive
  • Painkiller of choice (I have two strengthns) – Panadol Extra & Dapaflagan Forte
  • Medicine against diarrhea – Laremid
  • Medicine against bladder infection – UroFuraginum
  • Tablets to relieve heartburn and indigestion – Rennie
  • Tribiotic – ointment used to heal small wounds (also good to put on breakouts when you don’t have anything else on hand)
  • Band-Aids – different shapes and sizes
  • Antibacterial hand gel / sanitizer
  • Lip balm
  • Nail clipper
  • Nail file
  • Bobby pins
  • Glasses wipes (like a wet wipe soaked with alcohol to make your glasses very clean)
  • Panty liners (individually packed)
  • Pads / tampons
  • Small bag for trash (I use dog poo bags because they take up very little space)

I hope you will find this post helpful and maybe it will inspire you to put together your own kit.
