Katja and Arne's travel stories

23.04.15 Sick day

Leave a comment

What a night! Katja has hardly been sleeping as she’s been busy running to and from the toilet. This has been one of the worst nights so far.

We don’t really know what’s wrong with Katja as we ate much of the same food yesterday. Still she’s going through hell today. I’m a bit better, but being around a sick person don’t really do to much good for ya.
I get up just before eight and run errands. I tell her trainer she won’t be in today, pick up laundry, go by the pharmacy to get some medicine for her and return the motorbike. All in all a short trip, but with plenty of stops.
I get pills and good advice on handling food poisoning. No milk, yogurt or ice cream. Plenty of fluids, preferably with some antioxidants. We give it all a go, but here is little to no appetite to muster. Neither Katja nor me are really feeling the urge for any food, but rather go back to bed. We stay in bed until 14:00 before ordering a couple of pancakes to the room. We force them down with water and go back to bed. Rise again at 20:00 and stay up and watch TV until 22:30. Then it’s lights out again.
This got to be the least productive day of the tour, and not how we imagined spending one of the recovery days between the Tiger training and the upcoming Mandirigma camp.
Let tomorrow be a better day. Please!

Humongen! The big guy! The man, the myth, the legend! And then theres' me. The nice guy in the house. The man without cooking skills, but with five stars on the Playstation. Boss at work, relaxed at home. What you see is what you get. Life is good. I choose it to be.
