    Travelan - The Travel Insurance That Could Save Your Vacation

    Product Reviews

    Right off the bat, I’ll say this will be an awkward article. I’m talking about poop. This is something that affects most people in one way or another. Yep, you’re not alone. Up to 50-70% of travellers are affected by travellers’ diarrhoea (TD) at one time or another. I've tried a new medication called Travelan that helps prevent TD in 90% of cases.

With Pimsleur’s language learning method, speaking a new language (or two) just became super easy and affordable.
