Any cameras, mobile phones etc should be kept in re-sealable plastic bags to keep out water… (which will get everywhere).

Money

You will have chance to visit the local town so local currency will be an advantage.

Health

There are three things to consider:

  1. Tick borne encephalitis – please speak to your GP about this.
  2. Tetanus – please be up to date before the trip.
  3. EHIC – European Health Insurance Card – you will need one of these. Please visit www.dh.gov.uk/travellers and apply online.

Please consult your doctor. It is worth taking antibacterial soap with you and washing your hands before eating. Even by taking these precautions it is still possible to get an upset stomach, so having your own supply of Imodium (and loo roll) is advisable – if taking wet wipes, ensure they are biodegradable (i.e. Kandoo)

Weather

The temperatures in the wilderness could still be over 300C during the day but may dip below freezing at night. Be prepared for all eventualities. The likely temperatures are a max of 25 and a min of around 10.
