Chik Fever

Posted on: June 15, 2011

Chik fever… also known as Chikungunya fever originated in the lovely country of Tanzania. Does this mean I am more susceptible to contracting it?! I hope not! Although not life threatening, it seems like a pain to deal with, it is one of the many illnesses one can contract from those pesky little mosquitoes.

Anyways…… Today I met with the travel nurse (which was stupidly expensive, by the way) to learn about Chik fever and all of the other fun things I can contract. I went in knowing I needed my Yellow Fever shot, but apparently one needle=an hour speech. I guess it is important to know what to be careful of. I am not worried though, I have all my shots, I am not stupid….. although mosquitoes do have an affinity for my blood.

I go in 29 days (pretty much 28) and I couldn’t be more excited. I ordered a Kindle online, and it came in the mail yesterday, so that is exciting because instead of lugging books upon books, I can lug around this little toy. I also got a cover for it that makes it seem like I am holding a book, so whoever thinks that the Kindle ruins this experience… think again my friends! Journey’s travel has so many fun travel accessories, I will most definitely be going back before I leave.

p.s. I go out of town for 10 days next Friday, so that is going to make time go by extremely fast, yay!
