Travel Advice from 1480

While View from the Wing is giving away luggage from the future, I’m offering up travel advice from the past.

My favorite new find is a blog called Ask the Past.   Want to know how to kill bed bugs?  Ask 1777.  How to stop bleeding?  Ask 1644.

I figured I’d check to see if the Past took requests.



And today I got my reply.

How to Pack for a Journey, 1480

My favorite?  “Ginger syrup to settle his stomach if it is upset by too much vomiting.”

If your stomach gets upset from TOO much vomiting?  How I do I know when I’m vomiting too much?
