If you are keen to scratch that wanderlust itch, but you have been suffering with your health a little recently, don’t think that you are doomed to a homebound future from now on. You can still travel like everyone else, but you will need to take some extra care when considering your accommodation options, what you pack and your insurance. Take a look at how you can stay fit and healthy while traveling.
While you may be tempted not to let your travel insurance provider know about your current ailments, this would be a massive mistake. You need to let them know and pay the increased premium so that your chronic ailment is covered should anything flare up or become unmanageable while you are overseas and you need medical attention. Don’t think that you have to pay a small fortune for this. Go on one of the many travel insurance comparison websites and find the right deal for you. Just because you have a bad back, an illness or a chronic niggle doesn’t mean that you can’t experience scuba diving, mountaineering or bungee jumping like anybody else.
When looking into your accommodation options, this trip might not be the time to slum it around in hostels. This could lead to some sub-par living arrangements which won’t be conducive to your health. Instead look for hotels that are close to medical facilities just in case, and seek out those hotels that are close to amenities. You don’t want to be traveling too far for a bite to eat. City center locations are ideal as you can tour by foot without being too tired, and your accommodation will be close by should you need a rest halfway through the day.
