Travel tips

I'm anxiously awaiting a move and, with such a long trip ahead of me, I'm itching to talk about being on the road. Because of this, I've latched onto travel tips. However, being who I am, they're a bit more morbid then how to save money and use less gas.

I wrote an article about watching out for malaria when traveling overseas for the Hive. Malaria doesn't kill many Americans a year, only about a dozen, but it sickens 100x more than that. And the CDC recommends being checked immediately if any flu-like symptoms appear for up to a year from traveling overseas! It's not a pleasant experience and best to avoid mosquito bites and take antimalarial medications if traveling to India, Southeast Asia, Africa, and parts of South America and the Middle East.
