First the announcement: Due to a sudden unexpected bout with the flu, I probably won’t be able to come up with any new content for the next week or so. I had dodged it all winter even though many of my friends and family had succumbed. I still have a lot of old posts up, please feel free to continue to like and read those. I am confident with rest and meds I’ll be back very soon. Now for the question:
Have any of you gotten sick while traveling? Where were you and how did you deal with it? Do you normally carry travel insurance? Do you think it’s a good idea?
My answer: I am lucky to be home bound at the moment Despite being sick right now, overall I don’t get sick very often. I did get bronchitis while traveling in Scotland once but that was due mostly to the damp weather and having a traveling companion who was a chain-smoker. As far as insurance, I didn’t carry it when I was younger but mostly do now. It is probably like most insurance as long as you carry it, you’ll never need it, but as soon as you drop it you get dinged.
Would love to get any feedback you’d like to give. Will be mostly bed-bound for the next several days and would most appreciate some interaction.
