FitBit Charge 3 is a swim-proof watch fitness band & tracks everything from steps, heart rate, calories and sleeping patterns (it records REM, light & deep cycles).

There’s been headlines in the news about women encountering danger abroad. In Delhi last December, a nation was awakened when a local physiognamy intern accidentally boarded a private bus with a friend and was raped by six men. Even more recently, the body of 33-year old Sarai Sierra was found in Turkey after she had gone missing for two weeks.
It’s made the public and media becry – Is it safe for women to travel alone?
Travel Clothing for Female Travelers
My ballet legwarmers have been with me forever. They’re originally made for ballet warmups; so they’re soft and long. I pack them on every trip. Ideal for planes, trains and air-conditioned buses. They provide that add-on layer of warmth,.
My all-time fave multi-purpose fashion accessory and travel must! I got my green pashmina for $5 from a New York street vendor. Pashmina scarves are fairly soft, cozy and long.

Travel doctor recommended , it is a super strong (and toxic) insect and bed bug repellant you spray onto your bag and clothes and let set. It’s meant to treatment items before you take them on the road.
I’ve seen videos where people tested the Lifestraw water purification/ filtration device by drinking their vomit and pee. That’s extreme but you get the point. This can handle the hardcore.
Skin Care & Beauty for Female Travelers
I have freckles which grow into sunspots; I always pack a facial sunscreen stick. Bare Republic is all natural, eco-friendly & coral safe. The zinc protection is a bit thick; so I rub it in.
The 6 outlet power strip surge protector is perfect for charging all my devices. These days, finding a power strip with USB hubs is my next target. 6 foot cord is an ideal length.
