Guest blog post from Rosie Dimech about 'Find the Map Travel' and their experience of travelling with Water-to-Go. Rosie gives a fascinating insight into family travels and the amazing places they have visited.
Our modus operandi is ‘Collecting Memories and not Things’! We are a full-time travel family that gave up life in the suburbs to go and explore the world with our kids.
Yes, what we are doing is considered ‘Brave’ to some and just plain ‘Crazy’ to others. However, you only get one life, so you might as well spend your time living your dreams rather than waiting… for them to come true.
My dream is to get to know our kids better and have the time to make unique and long-lasting memories.
So we packed up our lives in the suburbs and are now travelling Europe in a Motorhome spending every day together.
Find The Map’s 20 Countries and Counting
As you can see we have been to over 20 countries in the last year and our biggest parental concern when traveling is the health and safety of our children.
Water-to-Go providing Clean, Safe Drinking Water
Finding reliable safe drinking water in new locations is a top priority. Is the water at our new destination safe to drink? Was a constant question for me as a parent.
We just couldn’t be 100% positive that the water sources were reliable, so I needed a solution that would work no matter where we went.
A fellow traveller recommended the Water-to-Go Filtered Bottle. I love recommendations as they have been tried, tested and deemed trustworthy by someone else. So I did a little research and brought our own bottles.
We have five 50cl bottles and take them everywhere with us. They go up mountains, on city trips and even to restaurants with us.
They are small, lightweight and the perfect size for kids. I no longer have to think about boiling water to drink ‘just in case’ as I can rely on the Water-to-Go filter to remove 99.9% of microbiological contaminants.
As a traveller and parent, Water-to-Go bottles give me peace of mind. Without them we face the prospect of sick kids, lost travel time, doctors and medical bills.
Its one less thing that I have to organise or pre-think before travelling to a new destination, especially if it is a foreign country.
Having clean and safe drinking water is a priority for my family! So is the reduction in single-use plastic, which these bottles facilitate.
Read more on the benefits of using Water-to-Go Filtered Water Bottles for the Environment on our website.
If you are unsure of the water quality in the country or location you are travelling to I recommend you get yourself a Water-to-Go Bottle, which will also help save our environment by reducing the number of single-use plastic bottles that end up in landfill.
It’s a small price to pay to have peace of mind on your next trip.
