When my husband suggested that we both needed a break from the "grind" and that we should take a few months off to travel Europe, I thought he was crazy. I have a chronic medical condition, and I didn't think it allowed me to travel. The thought of this potential great life experience being hindered by my health problem began to bother me, so I began researching how I could travel safely with my health problem. I learned that not only could I change my health insurance policy to cover any necessary treatments when overseas, but I could even be transported back to the US in an emergency. Finding out this information felt light a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I couldn't wait to leave! I created this blog to remind others with chronic diseases to not let them hold you back from experiencing life!
