Here are a few things that saved me in the last few days.
I always bring EmergenC when I am in danger of being run-down. I add it to my water bottle and it seems to ward of sickness and fatigue. I think this saved me from getting sick after all the hands I was shaking and germs I probably picked up along the way.This travel candle provides a little of the comforts of home. You are probably wondering why anyone needs to bring a candle when staying in a hotel. Well, I can't really talk about my job, but given that our travel budget is funded by tax payers, we go cheap! hee hee. One of the hotels I stayed at was $49 a night. Fifty dollars!! I didn't even know you could get hotel rooms that cheap!! Therefore, I bring a travel candle to take care of any strange "hotel room" smells.
