The Reality of Travel

Malaria, Typhoid, Hepatitis, Cholera, Diphtheria, have I missed any? Oh, Tick-borne encephalitis (Adam calls this one Tick Borne Enchiladas :-)), Japanese B, Rabies … and they’re the ones you can get jabs for. I hate to think what else is out there. Worms, Leeches, Scorpions, Snakes … I SAID I HATE TO THINK WHAT ELSE IS OUT THERE – right, quick, change the subject.

As you’ve probably figured, we’ve been to the docs for jabs. I didn’t need any but Adam needed Diphtheria, which comes in a “buy one get two free” syringe shaped pack. He didn’t need the other two and the nurse said it would be fine, though he’d probably feel a bit ill for a day or two … fancy telling a man that.

Next stop is the chemist to check out Malaria tablets. We’re only going to be in malaria zones two or three times for a few hours each, assuming the car doesn’t break down, but it’s better safe than sorry.

Ciao for now – J
