This is a photograph taken with my dear friend Rungnapa on my second trip to Thailand in 2006. We first met when my husband and I were teaching English for the summer in Bangkok. While he could not be here for this trip, I wanted to show him the amazing Thai food he was missing back in California. Purposely we had the photo taken after we had just finished an amazing meal at Mama’s, a place we had frequented back in 2004. It is hard to have a bad meal when traveling in Thailand with the different flavourable tastes and wide variety of vegetables and fruit from the region in south east Asia.
To be quite honest the one meal that made me quite sick during that time was not even Thai food at all, but from a western style resturant in a shopping mall geared to tourists from abroad. However, I did end up getting sick and had to be checked into the hospital. It can be scary when you get sick and especially more so when you are traveling abroad. Making sure to read up on travel health tips during your planning stage should be priorty for all travelers. Tips like drinking only bottled water or eating yoghurt once you get in country are a couple of things I have adhered to in my traveling past. Luckily for us there are always new things coming out to aid us during travel so that we can focus on the experience abroad.
Bimuno Travelaid. I was asked to try out and review a product made to help maintain travel health before and during your travels. Bimuno is a 100% natural travel health supplement designed to support the natural bacteria in your digestive system. This is to help avoid all sorts of travel issues with new cuisines, climate, and even stress. Being able to maintain the good type of bacteria in your system is the trick to having a happy stomach and a pleasant journey.
How it works. They reccomend that you start taking Bimuno Travelaid seven days before your trip and continue daily while travelling. You take three of the chewable pastilles in the morning and then repeat each day.
My Thoughts. I found it like having candy for breakfast as they taste like coconut flavoured gummies. It makes it easier to be proactive about acclimating your body’s digestive system. I no longer have to trek out and hope to find a store that would carry yoghurt. Bimuno Travelaid is a simple and practical solution that tastes great for maintaing your travel health while abroad.

Know your water. If sanitation is poor:

- Salads washed with local drinking water

The golden rule: cook it, boil it, peel it or leave it
