About the trip-of-a-lifetime...we were told that we would require certain vaccinations to travel to our destination. The recommended course of action is to pay a visit to the travel doctor...who knows exactly what we need. The travel doctor works from several offices...and spends a few days each week in our city. We quite liked his hours...and made an appointment for the wee hours of the morning before any other businesses were even thinking of opening their doors. His office was a bit of a surprise...somehow not what we expected. Located far from any other medical services, we found ourselves in a waiting room situated in the loft of a quilting shop. It gave a new meaning to having 'stitches' at the doctor's office.
He wasn't much interested and found some reading material. Soon we had our consultation...and rolled up our sleeves for the onslaught of needles. We are now protected against yellow fever...and many other horrid diseases. And while we were there..we had our flu shots as well. And all that happened before eight o'clock in the morning!
So...if you are considering travelling to interesting places in faraway lands, be forewarned...you must first visit the travel doctor. That would be enough to keep my daughter at home!
Enjoy the day...
