You need to ensure that medical conditions are managed and approved for travel by your doctor, take adequate amounts of medication to last the entire trip etc. accommodations are safe and booked in advance. Whether you plan to travel alone, with a buddy or spouse or travel in a group is another crucial element of the travel plan.
