First up – buy a Hello Cup. We could probably end this blog right there because that’s simply the best period travel tip ever. But let’s elaborate on why.
Back in my BC (before cup) days, I backpacked around the globe and experienced what can only be described as terrifying bathroom encounters. Add dealing with a period to those terrifying bathrooms and well, I probably should have headed straight to see a shrink after returning home as, years later, flashbacks still happen. I remain especially haunted by a Full Moon Party experience in Thailand that involved me trying to remove a tampon as I straddled a festering hole in the ground and simultaneously holding my breath to avoid an insult of the senses of the very worst kind while also praying for a toilet paper Goddess to suddenly appear (they didn’t). IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN ABOUT MENSTRUAL CUPS. If you have a period and are planning to travel, please learn from my mistake – make sure a menstrual cup is the first thing you pack.
So why do Hello Cups make the perfect travel buddy?
Keep a water bottle handy to rinse your cup with if the water where you are isn’t drinking standard. Our Hello GO is a handy travel-sized hand and cup sanitising spray and is also great when travelling. It forms a barrier which will keep your hands and cup germ free for up to 24 hours – even with subsequent washing.
