Last week’s tip was all about how fabulous traveling solo can be. And that is still true, but there is always an exception to the rule, and in this case it is getting sick.
On my recent trip to Paris I got food poisoning, which is never a treat but presents a whole new set of challenges when you are alone. As I lay in my tiny Parisian hotel room completely incapacitated and sure that death was right around the corner I couldn’t help but think, “I probably could have been a little more prepared.”

What are your tips for staying well when traveling?
