My youngest son gets car sick easily. Long road trips are a bit of a challenge – not only because the boys get restless in the car – but because of car sickness. Nausea on our recent trip by airplane was an issue, and soon we will be travelling on a ferry boat to Zakynthos, Greece. Before we travel anywhere, I’ll be sure to pack Gravol™.

If anyone is sensitive to motion sickness, whether you’re travelling by land, air or water, Gravol™ has you covered. Gravol™ Quick Dissolve Chewables for Adults and for Kids are ideal since they can be taken without water. If you prefer more natural products, Gravol™ Ginger tablets, lozenges or liquid gels made with certified organic ginger are also a great choice. Besides helping with motion sickness, Gravol™ Ginger products also help treat indigestion and upset stomach.  They are easily packed and are non-drowsy too. Gravol™ is only found in Canada, so make sure you stock up before leaving the country.

Here are 10 places to travel this summer.

10 Places to Travel this Summer

Canadian Destinations

Whistler, BC

Sure, the city is known for its majestic slopes, but without the snow you’re looking at a beautiful backdrop for outdoor adventures with an unforgettable view.

Toronto, ON

There’s nothing like getting your family’s adrenaline pumping by climbing up the CN Tower and leaning off the edge of a 553 meter high skyscraper!

Cavendish Beach, PEI

Red sandstone cliffs with crystal blue water surrounds you at the Cavendish Beach. While you’re there, explore historic sites, like the Green Gables Heritage Place.

Banff, AB

If you’re craving a breathtaking view – this place is for you! No need to go halfway across the world to become mesmerized by natural beauty. Kayak between the Rocky Mountains or simply take it all in.

Quebec City, QC

Here you’ll find hints of European charm mixed with authentic French Canadian character. Grab a poutine and walk around the old city, home to iconic Chateau Frontenac. If your legs start to give in, hop on a horse-drawn carriage along the cobblestone streets.

International Destinations

Grand Canyon, U.S.A.

One of the wonders of the world! It’s worth getting on a helicopter to soak in a truly life-changing experience.

Sesimbra, Portugal

This beautiful little fishing port is filled with colourful and authentic charm, known for its beaches, local cafes and fish restaurants. If delving into culture is what you’re looking for, this is it.

Kefalonia, Greece

Take a boat ride and you’ll be surrounded by picturesque villages, olive groves, beaches and tremendous mountains.

Kefalonia Greece

Hong Kong, China

A bustling and exciting harbour city, you’d be surprised how easy it is for tourists to explore. There are lots of kid-friendly activities, such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

A trip for the adventurous: the city showcases original ancient temples, including the Angkor Archaeological Park, cited as one of the most valuable archaeological sites in South-East Asia – so you know it’s worth getting over the jet lag for!
