Have you ever experience a frightening situation on your travels? Today I’d like to share with you my friend’s true story that happened just a few days ago and how a bottle saved her life.
Ursula Down’s post caught my immediate attention- here is how it started:
“PLEASE READ THIS AS IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL.”
I couldn’t help myself but share it with you because it can indeed happen to you too.
I finally arrived in Cusco, Peru last Wednesday afternoon and by 6 pm was not prepared at all for the altitude sickness (11,500ft above sea level). A headache (never experienced so much pain) and violent sickness arrived. I couldn’t move out of bed for the next two days. The total energy drain and the slightest movement left me gasping for breath. The realization I was on my own, in a strange country and my Spanish wasn’t particularly brilliant – certainly when I was sick. I had no food or water in the house. I just cried and never felt so alone.
A bottle that saved my life
BUT thank goodness I always carry a water bottle which has its own filter everywhere I travel because I recognize the importance of good water, plus I hate being ripped off in the airports! I was, therefore, able to fill up the bottle from the tap/faucet and still have good reliable water – as I was extremely dehydrated it supported my recovery. This actually just SAVED MY LIFE as the body cannot survive without water.
Be prepared for the unexpected
If you travel to countries where water is an issue or just go on road trips and need good water on the go, make sure you have a bottle with a filter to support you!
Today I am almost fully recovered but now have to take things easy for another few days – Not quite how I anticipated starting this adventure, but sure was a wake-up call. I have travelled extensively all my life, but this has to have been the scariest. BE PREPARED FOR THE UNEXPECTED! Thank goodness Nikken.com has taught me well – THANK YOU!
How to get prepared?
