I’m back!

So my hiatus over the past couple months has been due to my big trip around the world! It may sound conceited but I am incredibly proud of myself for managing to travel to Both England and the United Arab Emirates, both a a young person and as a chronic illness patient. I mean what says “RA/fibro can’t beat me” more than travelling half a world away from your doctors and everything you know. I had some awesome adventures abroad, some good, some “interesting” [like food poisoning on an international flight with a window seat]. Hiccups aside I had the time of my life abroad! More stories to follow!

Sorry for the short post but below are some of my favorite pictures from my trip:

  1. I love your Blog!

    More of an Armchair Traveller myself, although I don’t even own an Armchair…;)

  2. Hi! I couldn’t help but to be impressed that in spite of chronic pain you didn’t hold back your love for travel. I struggle with RA as well, but I’m planning a Round the World trip and I’m sooo nervous. I’m not sure how long I should travel for (4-8 weeks) but my doctor doesn’t seem worried. I’m just hoping that I don’t go halfway across the globe, and most of my mornings are spent in bed.

    I’ll definitely be following your blog from now on, and you really are a hero as far as I’m concerned

    • Thank you so much! Traveling with RA is not the easiest thing but it is rewarding once you get the hang of it. My main advice is figure out if any of your meds are illegal in the countries you plan to visit and if they are there is usually a waiver form you can get taken care of. Honestly if you really set your mind to it you can go anywhere you want. Feel free to message me on my facebook page anytime if you want any advice for travelling with chronic illness.
