Sitting around watching Hazel and Pax working in the garden last week I was feeling so low I was playing on the computer looking at World Cruises trying to take my mind of what was coming this week. I do not know what everyone does to take their mind off our conditions mine I look at Travel Expeditions.
I do not know if anyone on these sites know about the cruise ship World, where people can purchase a suite of one or two bedrooms or more. The cost of this is more than most normal people can afford although when purchased and decorated you can tour the World none stop for the rest of your life. All it does is go around the word the destinations are chosen by the owners and purchasers of the cabins etc
For a year you may start in London and just tour the World. What I do is I imagine I am on this ship and visiting all its stops and places of interest it calls at. Most of the places are not normal places of call for cruise liners so what they visit is out of the ordinary. This seems to take away some concerns and worries that are caused by my conditions and associated tests/results. As in all intents and purposes I am travelling around the world without the worry of strange countries and non existent hospitals. It just seems to get the mind away from all the concerns we suffer from.
So now I am having lunch with a bottle of Chianti, rump steak, chipped potatoes and whatever. After that a snooze until about three then look around the town etc. Then returning for evening meal and having a beer and chaser on the balcony watching port life passing by. When we go to bed the ship pulls out of the harbour. to our next port of call. I think you will get the gist of it all.
In the past many of the countries we visited have now been at war and many of their attractions have been destroyed. So it is nice to look into travel books and work out what is of interest to visit and see, sometimes it brings sadness although most brings excitement and anticipation.
This is just how I try and manage my disabilities, I even have books of Scotland where I used to walk and climb when I was young and daft, Photographs of my climbs and walks seem to widen my journeys.
All above is just one or two ways you can try and take your mind of our troubles
