I’m planning a one month trip to Vietnam for next year and I’m curious to know how you people would carry one month of medication supplies (more like 5 weeks of daily doses. One extra week for safety) since I don’t think I would be able to find my meds (or wouldn’t feel safe buying meds there because of counterfeiting). The weather might get hot at some point while traveling south and I was wondering if there was anything to keep my meds safe and at the right temperature?
I already know about Frio cooling wallets but I doubt they would be big or efficient enough. Any of you experimented with these and do they work well in 30°C + temperatures?
I also saw on a forum how a woman managed to get her meds in a thermos filled with ice packs and bubble wrap to avoid them from freezing. But that seems like a gamble and I wouldn’t want to risk losing my meds during the trip in case they freeze…
And what about the law, is there a maximum amount of medication that I can carry with me?
The thing is, I’d really want this trip to be an adventure and would love to backpack and stay in hostels most of the times. Also, this information would be useful to me for other things, like going on hiking trips away from civilization, rock climbing trips, etc… I’m still in good shape and so far, the transport and safety of my medication is the only thing holding me back.
So the big question I guess is: am I the only one concerned about this and is traveling with meds also a problem for other people? Is there a solution on the market that I just haven’t heard of? And what do you think would be the best solution for medication transportation, whether it already exists or not? Wait… that was 3 questions 😛
Thanks in advance!
