Do you Like to Travel? Thought So
Do you like to travel? Thought so. Who doesn’t love the opportunity to go someplace new, see some amazing things, have some great experiences, and eat some delicious food.
Me! You? Everybody, right?
There are however some hassles associated with traveling. They’re not a big deal, but they can be an inconvenience.
Hassle #1: Getting There
Of course, almost everybody hates the actual getting there part of it! Waiting in line at airports, having to go through security checks, lost baggage, and being cramped into a tiny seat is not ideal.
A journey by bus, car or train can certainly be a bit more pleasant. You can relax, you often have a bit more space and you can watch the scenery go by.
Every hardened traveler has a story of “that” bus journey gone wrong though! It broke down, overheated, and you were trapped on the side of the road in the baking sun for hours. Argh!
Hassle #2: Getting Ripped Off
Most people who travel a lot have been ripped off at some point in time. It’s kind of par for the course, and something that experienced travellers just accept as part of the journey.
Of course, you can take a lot of steps to reduce the chances of this, including the following:
- Do your research before you go!
- Change money at banks.
- Stick with “official” taxis.
- Know how much something should cost before negotiating. Ask a local for advice before doing this.
- Shop around for souvenirs, and in most countries, don’t accept the first quoted price.
- Ask questions before signing up for a tour, about what it includes, and doesn’t.
Hassle #3: Dealing with your Period
Dealing with your period at home is bad enough. There are things like cramps, leaking, missed days of work or school, and the expense of feminine hygiene products.
But, dealing with your period when on vacation is even worse. You just want to lay on the beach and have fun, without having to carry pads or tampons with you, and having to find somewhere to change them. You just want to do that long bus ride, but not worry about whether your tampon is full or not.
A solution to deal with your period while on vacation is the Lena Cup. It’s a top-quality menstrual cup that has quickly become one of the best-selling ones in the world in only a few short years.
Here’s why you’ll want to take the Lena Cup with you when you’re traveling:
- The capacity is 2-3x more than a jumbo tampon. It’s great for those long bus rides, or plane trips.
- There’s no waste. Don’t worry about how to dispose properly of used sanitary products when you’re in a foreign country. Can you flush it? Throw it away in the regular trash? Who cares! You don’t need to worry about this stuff if you have a Lena Cup.
- I’m out of tampons! It’s not a worry. If you use the Lena Cup, you won’t have to worry about running to the store in a foreign country to find the brand of pads or tampons that work for you.
Try it out for yourself to see the difference that a menstrual cup like the Lena Cup can make while you’re on vacation. Our guess is that you’ll love it as much as we do!

Hassle #4: Deciding Where to Go
Okay, so this is actually kind of a good problem to have. You have to decide where you’re going to go. But, it can be overwhelming because there are so many options.
Of course, there’s the FOMO (fear of missing out) factor too. If you decide to go one place, are you giving up something that’s slightly better?
Here are a few tips for helping you deal with this:
- Forget the FOMO thing. Do some research, book something and then put it out of your mind.
- Ask experienced travellers. They’ll know the best places.
- Think about what activities you want to do. Scuba diving, surfing, hiking, cooking classes, etc. You can base your destination around this.
- Don’t travel around too much. It can be tempting to see everything, but resist. Stay in a place for at least 3-4 days so you can soak up the ambience, meet some people, relax and enjoy!
