Hello friends. Today I want to share with you very briefly my experience of staying in small budget hotels and the main danger that can lie in wait for you there. Although we have already been taught by bitter experience, we still periodically step on the same rake…
Budget hotels are dangerous
Any trip to a new place is always a way out of your comfort zone, especially if you are traveling with small children. We have been doing this business almost from the very birth of our daughter, and from our own experience we have identified TOTAL THREE ITEMS that should definitely be in your first aid kit so that you can safely survive all the main troubles on vacation.
But first, the main disadvantage of budget hotels…
The sea in Turkey is very clean and unlike, for example, from Sochi, where we were constantly patients of the local infectious diseases hospital (even my husband lay down once), there are practically no problems with rotavirus infections in Turkish resorts .
BUT! If you stay in a crowded small hotel, where there is only one small pool for a large crowd of vacationers, then the chances of a “rotavirus problem” increase many times over.
Already closer to dinner, the water becomes cloudy and there is no desire to swim, but it is also very difficult to forbid the child to “roll down the hill a couple of times” when everyone around is having fun. In most cases, everything ends well, but sometimes, like after the Thron hotel, we have to print out our first aid kit. 4″>Three items that should be in your first aid kit if you are relaxing with a child
So, this is what our universal first aid kit for traveling with a child:
- Inhaler. Without him, we are nowhere at all. Our daughter had a couple of bouts of croup (shortness of breath due to narrowing of the larynx) after which the inhaler is the thing without which we don’t even think to go somewhere. Yes, croup is a rare phenomenon, but it's so terrible… And it occurs absolutely without any prerequisites.
- Polysorb. This is a universal sorbent that can replace several medicines in a first aid kit. It treats everything related to poisoning, diarrhea, intestinal and rotavirus infections. Can be used by both adults and children. Many drink it on vacation just for prevention, so as not to get infected. For budget hotels and before swimming in the Black Sea, this is very important!

- Antipyretic. With this, everything is clear. At night, the child will bring down the temperature either with antipyretics or by rubbing with a cold towel. The first option is more reliable.
This is how our universal travel kit looks like, which protects against almost all the troubles that can happen on vacation.
