Always check, and never ever drink water that isn't pure, clean, safe.

DO drink water. Lots of water; but be sure it's:
- bottled water
- filtered/purified water
- or boiled and strained water
These are some great options for travel!!
- Go Berky set (a personal water bottle and a 1.5 liter filter in a case)
- "Sport Berky" take-every-where bottle (or from Bulk Herb Store)
I've used the Sport Berky in my travels for over a year; it's wonderful to not worry about if there will be clean drinking water wherever I'm headed! (The one time I didn't use it, I seriously regretted it! The sweet folks offering me that nice cold water had no idea what it would do to a foreigner... Sometimes it's ok to just check and ask where the water is coming from. Canal water is not safe drinking option folks!)
I never know where I'm going next. But with a Sport Berky water bottle
One time when I didn't ask about the water in a new area, I drank water which was just fine for the locals (that time of year), but for a foreigner it was bad news. (Parasites thrive in places like canals!)
Do NOT drink:
- dirty water
- canal water
- stream or lake water that looks clean
- tap water in questionable situations
Please be careful, protect your health, ask about the water! "Bring along & use a Berky"
