Have you ever gotten sick on vacation?

I am...so angry and bummed....not to mention tired. I guess something I ate didn't agree with me....this has been going on since 11:30 pm last night. I'm trying green tea with honey. Wanted to go to Kalihiwai and Anini this morning :(

Keep your fingers crossed I'm OK to go to the Bon Dance tonight at 5pm...and that I'm able to eat ;-)

Hi

So sorry you are sick. My husband had the flu on our Maui trip years ago with fever and chills. Wasted two days of a 6 day trip. At least you have plenty of time to get well and still enjoy.

If I'm understanding your symptoms correctly....stick with a B.R.A.T diet until better......bananas, rice, apple sauce and toast.

Tea is good...

Oh, I could go on and on ... seems like there's always something.

I recall our first trip ... DH injested some sea water at his first venture snorkeling. BAD tummy. I recall cheering him up by tucking him into bed and turning on the Niners game. Then I went shopping.

BTW - never try to walk in the sand with broken toes. Doesn't work.

I agree with BRAT above.

Ginger ale is my main stay for tummy troubles - and acidophilus if it doesn't get better. Hope you feel better soon! :)

Yes, I had an unpleasant episode of a chronic condition and ended up in the ER.

I did allow myself to recouperate lying in the shade next to the ocean on a comfy chaise lounge with Hawaiian music playing on my headphones.

Wish you the best of luck. Have never gotten sick on vacation but it was an all too common when I was traveling lots of international for work. Once lost 14 lb in less than 24 hours while in China. BRAT is way to go, wish I followed my own advice many times lol.
