"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15

Health & Safety Traveling Tip #2 Drink Clean Water

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!!

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 filter purifier, I've been able to safely drink water from a rain puddle in the Tennessee countryside, water all over Mexico, filling up in airports after security, and even when visiting friends in the city. :]


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 
In a very bad situation, you could even end up with something worse then parasites; you could get cholera or other deadly diseases. Be careful! See my next post for more info: What About A Berkey?

Please be careful, protect your health, ask about the water!  "Bring along & use a Berky"
