Making life easier on the road

I wish I had known about the DivaCup before setting off on my around the world cycling tour in 2006. The DivaCup is a re-usable alternative to messy tampons that makes travel a whole lot easier.  Not only are tampons messy, polluting and annoying, but there also extremely difficult to find in many parts of the world.  What's more tampons are also very expensive in many developing countries because the are viewed as imported luxury goods.

Do yourself (and the environment) a favor and get a DivaCup before stetting off.
