Travelling During Periods? Make Sure You Carry Your Menstrual Bag

Travelling During Periods? Make Sure You Carry Your Menstrual Bag

Travelling during periods? Make sure you carry your menstrual bag along

Admit it, we all like to travel! If you are like me, your travel plans are very spontaneous with zero planning and schedule. Moreover, sometimes we also have such situations that we have to plan everything at the minute. In such circumstances, the hardest part a woman can face is “travelling during periods”. Without a doubt, it’s going to get difficult to manage “that time of the month” while you are travelling. It has happened to me a lot! Hence, I found many hacks on how to survive if you are travelling during periods.

Under this article, we will cover:

  • How to pack your menstrual bag
  • Some amazing menstrual products
  • How to deal with cramps while travelling
  • What to do when you can’t find a clean washroom

I am so sure you all want to know all of this, so let’s just move straight to the topic. Travelling during periods, a little difficult, but manageable.

Menstrual Bag

Gear up! You need some stuff here. First thing first, you obviously need sanitary pads, tampons or menstrual cup whatever you are comfortable with. Pack your stock as you are never sure if you can buy them on your way also why do you want to risk! Just pack huge stock so that you are safe. If you are travelling during periods, prefer using a menstrual cup. The reason for using a menstrual cup is that you don’t need to change it as often as a pad or a tampon.

Another thing in your menstrual bag is a clean towel and paper soaps. If you are lucky enough to find a nice washroom, you will probably get these there but what if you don’t! Keep your own things ready to face any situation if you are travelling during periods.

Next thing that you need to pack is tissues! Both dry and wet tissues need to be packed. For wet tissues, I have the best option for your guys. Use the Oraah intimate wipes, as these are chemical-free, alcohol-free, foam-free and are extremely safe to use! You can buy the wipes from their website www.oraah.in

Disposal Bags

It is important to dispose of your pads or whatever you are using in a proper way. Carry some garbage bags or piece of newspaper or tissues if you don’t have anything handy. Wrap properly and dispose of in a nice hygienic manner as well.travelling during periodsTo relieve the Cramps

I always use hot water bags (both traditional and electric) to relieve the cramps. You can carry some hot water in the temperature resistant bottles and keep replacing. Moreover, you can also use this water to sip as that helps relieve cramps as well. Here I have another great option for you guys. Oraah cramp relief roll on. Keep this roll-on handy and trust me you will be at ease.

Pack these Foods

Don’t you want to eat some chocolate or some chewy candy while on your periods? Well, then pack! Take whatever you can in your bag that you can possibly crave for while travelling during periods. Also, make sure you eat healthy and clean foods so that you don’t have to deal with acidity or severe cramps.

 

Keeping all these points in mind, take your menstrual bag along and you do not have to worry about a thing! Happy travel! For more interesting blogs, click here. Also, follow me on Instagram.

Travel after COVID unlock: Rajasthan Roadtrip

Travel after COVID unlock: Rajasthan Roadtrip

Travel after COVID unlock: Rajasthan Trip with Lemon Tree Hotels

 

The times have been tough, but it’s easing out a little now. We all need to be super cautious, take all the precautions, and yet bring our lives back to normal. I am not a wanderer and I don’t call myself a traveler as well. However, I do like to travel to a new destination every few days. This time when all the restrictions were lifted, I decided to travel to historic Rajasthan. [You may also like to read: Destinations for solo travelers]

The heritage, that royal charm, and food! It was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Also because after so many months I finally got the chance to go out and breathe! Did I mention that it was a road trip?! That’s the beauty of it… I love long drives, through the random roads that you have never been on before. Keep moving as you see the sunsets and the sunrises. How can I not mention the Dhaba breaks! Those just love… more than the destination; I have always been a fan of the journey. 

However, we do have to keep in mind that COVID is still very much here. We are all unlocked because we had to but just keep in mind that there’s still no vaccine and no way out of this. However, that shouldn’t stop you from going out. Take precautions that’s the key! I will help you out with my experiences and even my mistakes so that when you plan your next travel, you are all safe and ready!

Hygiene

Where else you think we should start. So my journey was of almost 9 hours and needless to say I had to use the loo in between. So the first thing that you need to keep in your bag is the toilet seat sanitizer. As it’s the travel after COVID unlock, keep the intimate wipes, some paper soaps, and the dry tissues as well with you. So in case, you need to use the loo while traveling, use all of this. DO NOT even use the soap or the handwash kept in those toilets.

Food and Water

We do have to avoid outside food while on the go. See you are obviously going to eat out on your trip however, avoid during the journey. Pack some food from home. There is one beautiful reason to it as well, you can just sit anywhere seeing the view, and do a little picnic thing! Pack some Chai, some snacks and you are going to enjoy for sure.

Sanitizer and Mask

I think this is not even something that I should mention but still. Don’t get carried away as you travel after COVID unlock. Keep your mask on all the time! I mean it while exploring the places, sightseeing, and everything, keep your mask on. Also always keep a sanitizer handy. Keep sanitizing your hands every now and then. Especially in the tourist places where people from different areas must be visiting you do need to take care of the sanitizing part.

 

Stay

Although every hotel or guest house is super cautious these days and they are doing their best to keep you safe but you need to still be careful. Even you feel like there are not enough safety measures being taken, speak up! Request the hotel staff to adhere to the safety norms. Here I suggest you book a place after checking these things only.

In my travel after COVID unlock, I stayed at Lemon Tree Premier Jaipur and kudos to the staff, I was very impressed with their hospitality. All safety precautions were being taken, proper sanitization, and everything. I would recommend the lemon tree to everyone.

So, finally, I would say, don’t fear just pack your bags and go out! But be careful. For more travel blogs, click here. Also, follow me on Instagram.

Beautiful Destinations in India for Solo Travelers

Beautiful Destinations in India for Female Solo Travelers

 

There’s so much that nature has to offer. Foggy hills, snow-clad mountains, fascinating beaches, wide deserts, wildlife and so much more. The definition of travel has changed so much in these years that it has lost its true meaning. Only a true traveler knows that it’s not about choosing a foreign destination but about going deep into the less explored places in our own country. It’s not about staying in lavish hotels but to camp somewhere near the river or in the lap of the mountains.

 

travel pictures

 

Thanks to social media people these days only want to visit places to let the world know they did! In its true meaning, according to me… Travelling is to connect with your own self, to feel the oneness with nature. It is about knowing what you do not know already! Hence, the concept of Solo traveling is fascinating to the core. There’s no fun in travel if you are not traveling alone or with someone who knows you and your definition of travel very well.

 

India has always been rich in heritage and nature. There are still so many places in India that have not been explored much. If we discuss every single destination, we can go on and on forever… So here is the list of 5 such destinations which should be on every Solo traveler’s bucket list. (with many other places of course!)

 

 

Kasol

There’s so much more to Kasol than its hash of course! A small town on the banks of Parvati river and is surrounded by the mighty mountains. A captivating trek, camping on the banks of Parvati river in the valley, meeting a lot of hippies everything about kasol has a vibrant vibe mixed with the subtleness. Who needs an international holiday when the same and even better is here on our own land.

 

travel quotes

 

Zanskar Valley

If you have been longing to go far far away from the crowd, this place is your calling. One of the most isolated Himalayan valley where nothing and no one comes between you and your inner soul. The connect that you feel here is difficult to be found anywhere else. The valley is in ever beautiful Ladakh region and its definitely a reason why you should now plan a visit there.

 

 

Rishikesh

If you are a spiritual person and looking for going to a spiritual maintenance mode, book your tickets to Rishikesh. The feels that you get at the evening Ganga aarti are filled with good vibes. That’s not it, adventure sports have always been one reason why people chose to visit Rishikesh. Rafting, Bungee Jumping, cliff jumps, rappelling all can be experienced in Rishikesh.

 

 

Varkala

The hidden treasure of Kerala. It is a coastal town in Kerala with a surreal cliff overlooking the Arabian Sea. The place gives you so much peace that you would just want to lie down on the beach and just watch the day go by.. To add to that there are many tourists spots to visit. Varkala is also known to be the house of various Ayurvedic spas and treatments. Explore that part of the town as well…

 

travel pictures

 

Meghalaya

This place should top your list for all the good reasons. There is so much to explore here that you would need a good one week at least. Man-made lake “Umiam” gives a beautiful view of the river bank amidst the tall mountains.  Crystal clear waters of Dawki are a true delight. You don’t need to dive in the waters to see what’s in there… it’s all just visible like that. Cherrapunji, which only has one season and that is rains and clouds (monsoons). Meghalaya is a storehouse of places that can make you want to stay there forever.

 

So just pack your bags with essentials, update your playlist with your favorite hits and go to a place where you have never been before!
