Yes, I know, I know-I’ve been really bad about blogging lately. For whatever reason, the mood just didn’t…hit me. But an update was WAY overdue..so here I am!
The biggest update within the last month would have to be my trip to Rotterdam to visit my friend Carm! She and I used to work together, but she moved to Rotterdam, has a great job, and is doing great. I really needed to get away, so I took 10 days of vacation to spend with Carm. I did make sure to have all of my medication in place and also to get a letter from the transplant unit to take a long with me.
I will admit-most of my pictures are food related! The cold, humid weather in Rotterdam was really hard on my joints, namely my right knee. For that reason, we didn’t get to go and venture out the way I would have liked.
Anyhow, my flight went well. I watched the movie End of Watch and most of the movie Taken 2. I spent some time chatting with a nice gentleman who also used to live Canada but moved to Europe. This was my meal on my flight with KLM. Now this is what airplane food should be-it was delicious!
When I arrived at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, I could see Carmela waiting for me behind the security glass. Luckily my luggage came quickly, so I was able to meet with Carmela and get the trip started. First order of business-Caramel macchiatos 🙂
Let’s not forget my other roommates during my trip! Meet Angus (left) and James (right)
So that’s it! I had a great time. This trip was so major for me, especially since I was able to travel without having to worry about dialysis and stuff. I felt (and feel) so independent-so liberated! I can’t wait to plan the next trip! 🙂
