PORTABLE FITNESS

Looking for a simple way to keep fit while travelling? Bring along a couple of resistance bands. Lightweight and easy to use, the bands can be tied to door knobs, chair arms or legs, shower rods or any other secure piece of furniture that won’t come loose. By bringing along your own workout, you’ll be able to keep up your strength for whatever type of adventure crosses your path.

Green Diapers, Maps, Laces, Airmiles, Shampoo and Zippers

A GREENER DIAPER

If you’re travelling with infants and have the environment in mind, try using travel towels made of synthetic microfiber material, which absorb more moisture per area than cotton and wick liquid away from the skin. (With cloth diapers, you’ll be packing around soggy nappies until reaching a machine drier—an extra expense and inconvenience—or wasting time line drying.) My daughter wore microfiber diapers exclusively for five days with no irritation. Any outdoor store carries the towels in a range of sizes and materials—we bought a large one and cut diapers to size. Use biodegradable soap, such as Dr. Bronner’s, to handwash them each night. They remain much softer-to-the-touch than hand-washed cotton diapers.

Toilet Paper, Exercise, Locals, Conversation, Pictures and Language

BYO...TP (TOILET PAPER)

When travelling in South America, carry a potty bag with you at all times. It should contain toilet paper, hand sanitizer and about one dollar in local currency. The toilet paper is self-explanatory—the majority of washrooms don’t supply it. The hand sanitizer can be used when washing your hands isn’t an option or to sanitize the toilet seat. You’ll need the money because most places charge you to use their washroom.
