This is Dr. David

what blood pressure medications are you taking?

most likely your blood pressure will go up during those 6 days on vacation if you are not taking them.

avoid salt in your diet and avoid eating too much on vacation.

salt will cause you to retain fluids and will also increase your blood pressure.

you should monitor your blood pressure on vacation as well and see what it is.

if it gets too high, like above 180/120, you should go to a local hospital or ER for evaluation for a doctor to treat you.

let me know if you have questions.
