MANILA, Philippines – When preparing for a trip, what’s the first thing you put into your luggage?

But don’t forget to make another kind of list: one that includes the essentials to keep you safe.
We always hear and read about “horror” stories of trips gone wrong. Traveling is always a worthwhile experience, but it comes with risks. It’s best to prepare for the unexpected. Illnesses and accidents – even the minor ones – can prevent you from having fun.
