One thing you don't think about when travelling overseas...

The tap water!

If you are jetting off on your vacation, then it is imperative to have the right health insurance but even so making sure you keep your health in mind is equally as important.

All the time you hear about best things to do when you land in your selected destination and even places to dine. But one of the last things to consider is whether or not you can actually drink the tap water or not. Don’t be that person who goes out for the day then go back to your hotel room, turn on the tap in your room and fill up a glass of water to quench your thirst, all without thinking about whether or not you really should be doing so.

In the US we can all be guilty of taking advantage of fresh, clean, drinkable tap water. But in foreign countries it may not be advisable for you to drink. You might think its ok because you have health insurance… But do you really want to spend the duration of your trip feeling unwell?
