Greetings from dull, wet and windy Devon. Just need your thoughts / advice please. My brother and his wife are going to South Africa for 6 weeks over the Christmas / new year period and … they’ve said I could go out and join them for a couple of weeks if I’d like to! WOWWWWWWW ! Sounds amazing and since his 'phone call I’ve spent the last couple of hours shaking like a leaf and feeling a mixture of scared/excited. But I’m now wondering - could I cope with it? I’ve never flown anywhere before, so getting to the airport and all the going through customs etc would be completely new to me and I’d be doing it on my own because brother and wife are going before Christmas and I’d be going mid-late January. What about immunization? How does MS cope with that? And the heat in SA - would I be flaked out or revitalised by it - not to mention what effects the flight might have? My walking is fairly rubbish - and I use a stick these days - would I be holding them up / limiting what they want to do? I’ve also reduced my hours at work a few months ago - so would I have the energy for lots of holiday activity, sight-seeing, safari maybe??
HELP! Any thoughts / advice / personal travel experience with MS would be greatly appreciated.
