Getting Sick While Traveling
Getting sick on the road is something many of us fear, and that can be daunting when you are in a new place. These are posts that address what it is like to be sick far from home, as well as tips for avoiding it as you travel.
Most people do get sick on the road at one point in their travels. If you are lucky, your illness will require a quick trip to the doctor and some antibiotics or anti-parasite medication. If you are me, your illnesses will straddle several continents, a multitude of body parts and an exploration of Eastern and Western medicine – all in the span of one year.
It has been awhile since I’ve updated the blog, and I’ve been getting some worried emails about the it. I am indeed alive, and have been in New York City and Montreal, spending time with friends and family and getting myself back on track and healthy.
I am back in Brooklyn, and – other than an unfortunate mishap this AM involving a kitchen knife and my big toe – on the road to recovery.
Too sick to keep travelling, I’ve finally resigned myself to heading home for a full recovery.
