    I would recommend nose spray/cold and flu tablets. Once 1 person gets sick on the bus it only takes a couple of days for it to spread to everyone! You can buy these things on the road, but once you feel like crap it can be quite daunting to have to go find a chemist and try to explain what you want, especially since they usually keep these things behind the counter, you can’t just go and choose them off the shelf. My nose spray was such a blessing to me (I sound like I’m 80!) and every one on my tour would borrow it to take into the chemist to show them what they wanted!
