So once again I’m in Europe. This overseas vacation thing might end up being yearly, at least at the rate I’m going. This time I came with one of my best friends, so navigating travel with chronic pain is a little more difficult this time.
So how am I doing so far? A few reminders to her on our first night (last night) that I need a really good sleep so that I can make it through the trip, followed by a really good sleep! Though I have promised we can go out and party tonight. Which will no doubt be followed by another really good sleep.
A priority I made to myself this morning since I was up first anyway (and I knew I would be) was to do all my exercises and stretches before I start my day. Half an hour of exercise followed by a 10 minute meditation definitely made me feel great. Then I wandered out on the streets of Amsterdam, found a cute French bakery and bought coffee and chocolate croissants (yes I know, not the best for autoimmune but I’m on vacation).
How will the rest of the trip go? I guess we’ll see. But I’ll keep you posted with mini blog posts throughout!
