I would recommend it to a friend for sure–in fact, I already have! The first phone they gave me didn’t work well at all–I think it was defective. However, they quickly replaced it (went out of their way to deliver it), and once they did, everything was smooth sailing. The phone wasn’t high-end, but functional (I’m an iphone user though, so i think I’m spoiled). It’s very helpful to have a wireless hot spot when traveling in india because wifi is not very available. The phone Trabug gave me was AWESOME for that, since cell service is good pretty much throughout Northern india where I traveled. I was even able to make FaceTime audio calls (and sometimes video) home to my loved ones in the states from everywhere–hotel rooms, buses, walking down the street etc. Plus, being able to use my personal iPhone was great, since the android given wasn’t super high end (touches not as responsive, etc.). PLUS: The price is very much worth it, especially with the service. And at the end, they picked up the phone from the hostel where i stayed my last night. All i had to do was give them the address, and leave it in the hostel lock box in the provided Trabug envelope. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.” Alan Ashbaugh U.S.A.

How To Avoid A Delhi Belly When In India

If you aren’t aware what Delhi Belly is supposed to mean, you my friend haven’t done your research about Indian food. It is one cute phrase used to usually describe a condition with an upset stomach accompanied by diarrhoea, especially as suffered by visitors to India. Indian food is famous for its spices and the variety and it is no less than often that a traveler has a bad experience with the health because of lack of tolerance and adaptation of different tastes. Here are few things to keep in mind that might help you. Keep sure of the hygiene of the place you are eating at. Keep hands washed and avoid eating from street side vendors or from utensils that you suspect to be less than hygienic. Keep yourself well hydrated at all times. Avoid juices, milkshakes, water from roadside. Only consume packed water and drinks. Have fruits that you can peel yourself instead of juices. Avoid ice too. You can find suitable hydration salts after consulting a chemist or a doctor if required. Always read allergen information on packaged goods and make sure to ask for ingredients that are used in your food. Specify if you are allergic to something and keep precautionary medicines with you at all times. If you have developed an upset stomach, go light with the food. Eat food that is easy to digest and keep yourself thoroughly hydrated with electrol or ORS (Oral Rehydration Syrup). Take yogurt, rice, soup. Avoid wheat, spices and milk . Prefer home cooked food over packeted food. Consult a doctor for appropriate medication. Take supplements or yogurt/lassi to keep your immune system to the best of its game as you will need a strong one here in India. While all might look a little terrible and scary, it does get better. Once in India and you get used to the food here, you will be able to enjoy the delicacies and have your share of it. Disclosure: The information above is all generic.

For A Happy First Time Travel To India

India is dream country to visit for many and for many reasons too. Be it the culture, the colours the calm or the chaos, it has intrigued travellers since ages and continues to do so even now. Being different from the other parts of the world, India has its own ways with the things and the people. To come here and to explore India comfortably; we would like you to keep the following in mind. TravelWell in advance plan your trip. People usually try to squeeze too many places in one trip and that would take the essence out of the trip. India has a lot of different things. It has mountains, backwaters, spiritual centres, cultural bits, wildlife and much more. Pick the parts you want to explore and make arrangements already. Book hotels/ airbnb well in advance and also get tickets for your preferred way of commute already booked. India is a populous country, so to avoid ending up without tickets, this is essential. For railway tickets you can visit the government site https://www.irctc.co.in/eticketing/loginHome.jsf and avoid standing in lines on the station. HealthAvoid drinking tap water as unlike many countries, tap water in India isn’t distilled. Buy packed water only. Food in India is generally spicy and will always have more vegetarian options as to non vegetarian options, therefore choose food places wisely. Avoid eating at roadside stalls or from vendors as it may not be hygienic and could give you what is called a ‘delhi belly’. Avoid using public washrooms as the condition is usually really unhygienic. Keep with yourself at all times sanitizers/soap, wet wipes and toilet paper. Law Of The Land
