Photograph Your Prescriptions
Back in May, my dad and I went on Windstar Star Pride’s inaugural cruise from Barcelona to Rome. Our first port was Sete, France, a sleepy little French seaside port known as Cette until 1928. The highlight for me, besides getting one of the best ham and cheese sandwiches I’ve ever had, was finding a pharmacist who not only spoke English but also filled my dad’s prescriptions with enough medication to last him the trip!
My dad had foolishly forgotten to pack them, but because we had photographs of his prescription labels, things worked out okay. The lesson: Photograph your prescription labels and keep them on your phone when you travel, because in Sete, that’s all the pharmacist needed to fulfill my dad’s order. And guess what? It cost less there then it did in the U.S.
