Take along doxicyline, pennicilin, and ciproflaxin. The doxi is good for malaria, just take one every day and you probably won't get i, and the cipro is good is you get an intense case, of the shits, one of those cases where you lose lots of bodily fluids. Cipro will usually knock it donw quick, before you would ever find your local doctor, compttant to advise you on a "herbal remedy". Pen is good for infections. Also, deet is good for crotch rot, just put a stick between your teeth so you can endure a little momentary pain, but it will do you amazing relief if you have been hiking in the jungle for 20 or 30 miles in a day.

As I can see, you discussed about insurance here, so I have a question regarding it. I never bought trip insurance before so googled these days and found out that i.e. www.worldnomads.com is much more expensive than travelinsurance.easyjet.com and easyjet has 50% bigger medical cover... Do you maybe know why?

Is it necessary to have such a big medical cover or is it better to choose a coverage by myself like here: https://www.evasan.com/travel-insurance-online

Sorry about all the questions.

I have found the following https://subscribe.acs-ami.com/engine/en/step1 and https://www.evasan.com/schengen-visa-insurance , and prices are pretty different so I need to know if cheap insurance can affect on my Visa getting...
