Well… it depends on where you want to go. And, what drugs you’re taking. If you’re just traveling domestically (as an American), or being whisked away to the confines of a resort, you should have no problem. But my interests have been piqued by more developing regions, recently. Anyone taking any medication that affects the […]


No, of course not. The husband and I are still very happily married, thankyouverymuch! Many of you who know me personally are aware of my obsession with traveling. Even when I was a child, I would look through travel agency brochures and dream of places like London and Paris (both of which I’ve been to… […]


If you haven’t been following my schedule to the letter… today culminates or 28-day tour of the Balkans (at least the Western region–Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro). Tomorrow, we fly home. I’m glad to say that I didn’t have any major health mishaps (I did eat a little too much dairy from time to time, and […]


First things first: this is a very rewarding region for travel, especially for those of us who are old enough to remember the breakup of Yugoslavia (both of us were in college at the time). We’ve had a lot of conversations with locals that I would not trade for anything. Before our time here–which started […]


living abroad

There are a lot of expat bloggers that I’ve read… But have any of them had MS? Or a chronic disease that has to be monitored regularly? I’ve put a lot of thinking time into how to do something like this. I’ve traveled a lot, I’m growing weary of the introversion (and elitism…) of Seattle, […]


If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I travel a lot (50 states, anyone?) and that I enjoy doing it. MS has led me to change my style a little… My last trip, I was gone for almost a month. We didn’t spend more than 3 days in any one place, and drove […]


get outta here!

Too many of us with a chronic disease end up sitting around at home–whether from chronic fatigue, chronic pain, too much inward focus on *us* and our disease, and/or lack of funds (because of having to pay for treatment). And yet travel is one of the best gifts/investments you can ever make. To quote Mark […]


Remember when I came back from the east coast trip at the beginning of summer, when I said I had a “challenging re-entry” to my normal routine? I was so worried that my body wasn’t handling travel well anymore, and travel is sacred to me, something I really enjoy. I figured that somehow, I’d learn […]


Late Tuesday night, we returned to Seattle from two weeks on the East Coast… high-school-reunioning, visiting friends, road-tripping to New England… pretty much non-stop. … just to give you a small sampling of what we did. The weather was all over the place, as well, from sunny to humid to thunderstormy… enough to send my […]


overdone

22Jun13

A few days ago, I had my first experience of “overdoing it” with, I’ll guess, my MS and my body. We took a train from my mother-in-law’s house to Manhattan and saw some sights that we hadn’t seen before, and ran around the city visiting friends here, there, and everywhere. The schedule was packed, and […]
