      Are you looking forward to any vacation plans this year? Where are you going? How have your vacations changed since you were diagnosed with PD?

      I went on vacation to Florida for 10 days recently. It was my first time since diagnosis. We also went on a short cruise. I was a little on edge since I was going to have to negotiate my way around a crowded boat. It worked out fine though I did fall once. It would be nice to get away from PD on vacation but it was relaxing.

      We have a trip planned for the Fall for a river cruise in Europe. I am a little concerned about the amount of walking involved, but will take a cane and my walking sticks for negotiating the shore tours.  I have found that taking long flights (to New Zealand and Africa) require an aisle seat, so I can get up and stretch every hour or so.  Also if I have connecting flights, I request a wheel chair at the gate since there may be a long distance between domestic and international flights.

      In New Zealand, we visited family and did touring on our own. In Africa, we went on a photo safari which was done on land rovers, sitting most of the day. All of these major trips were taken after my diagnosis of PD.  One final note, take an ample supply of your medications with you as the country you’re visiting may not have your meds available.  this is especially important in case of emergency delays.
