Minimalist Medicine Kit
I remember reading about a backpacker who was on the road for some months, she had two film canisters (remember those?) as her medical kit.
In it she had something like 2 safety pins, 2 asprin, 2 Imodium tablets, and 2 bandaids.
As much as I would like to travel lightly like this (!), I cannot, as I have a little family to look after.
Packing for 2 weeks trip:
Panadol & Nurofen (plus Dispensers)
Bandaids & Antiseptic cream
Panadol (adults) & Cold & Flu tablets
Paw paw ointment & Saline
Safety pins & Tweezers
Hand sanitary gel
There are other things I could pack like scissors, gloves, instant cold pack, gauze pads and tape. But I'm going to Korea and you can get most of those things there! I just want to travel light, and to get-by until we can get help if there's a more serious injury.
For now, lots of Winnie the Pooh and Transformer Bandaids will suffice. :)
