Happy Birthday to me. Such a lovely day. Time off work, friends popping in for a cuppa, lots of cuddles with my doodle dog Ruairi & a family dinner in the evening - my 4 offspring plus their partners gathered round the table enjoying food & chat = happiness. Okay so I had to cook my own birthday meal but hey ho. Feeling lucky 🙂
I just found this on my phone taken back last July...Shout out to the Nurses and Doctor that saved me, I'm not sure what sort of bug I caught, if it was food poisoning or maybe from swimming in a mountain river, but within about 45minutes of first throwing up I had thrown up about 12 times and was dangerously de-hydrated (after hiking all morning and then going thai boxing). I managed to get to the hospital with the help of some legend on the back of his motor bike (I remember telling him i'm probably going to throw up or pass out on the back). When I got to the hospital I realised I had left my travel insurance back at my hostel so had to top up my money passport over the phone, literally 2 minutes after paying I started hallucinating, had the worst cramps ever in my legs and then my vision went totally blurry, they gave me 3 injections and put me on a drip which sorted me out but I honestly think if I had not got the drip in me within a few hours I would have been brown bread because I could not take on any fluids normally. If you are ever travelling
1. Make sure you have medical cover
2. Carry your cover details on you
3. Tropical illness can fuck you up.
Have a great day, make it count.😊#tbh#feelinggrateful#feelinglucky#travel#travels#travelgram#travelling#travellife#medic#hospital#adventure#explore#instatravel#thankful#thankyou#life#travelblogger#travellover#travelgoals#wanderlust
