I wrote a while back about my holiday nerves. Just wanted to post an update.

I spent a few days with my family planning a holiday and told them all about my worries. Just talking it through helped.

I am usually a tent in a rucksack wing it when we get there traveller.

For the first time I have booked an all inclusive sit on a beach and do bugger all holiday in a hotel in Turke., Suggested by my lovely. Lovely daughter.

So excited!

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone here for their reassuring comments when I was having the herby jeebies! If I can get online out there I'll try and post a postcard of some kind!

  • Hi. I did the same with my wife in egypt last week. I can honestly say it was the closest i have felt to being like i was before the accident. I think the fact that there is absolutely nothing at all to think about or worry for.

    Have a great time and let us know how you get on.

  • that really you, Paul ? I am beaming like a Cheshire cat having seen your comments and the way you're now embracing this holiday.

    I am so seriously happy for you and I bet your family are really proud of you for fighting off the 'herby jeebies'.
