I tend to get dehydrated rather easily, a problem that is compounded when I travel to locations where the water is unsafe/unfamiliar for me. I often seem to find myself having to choose between getting sick from dehydration and (potentially) getting sick from drinking local water.
I'm not accustomed to bringing a filtration/purifying device with me (though if this is a practical solution to my problem, I am definitely open to suggestions), and bottled water gets very expensive very quickly (not to mention it always seems to run out so fast...). I am at a loss for how else I might approach this problem.
How can I ensure that I have access to drinkable water when I travel?
