What went wrong in my journey?


I travel a lot and something goes wrong on a regular basis. It means I have had to visit a doctor in quite a few countries. I am a bit of a clumsy person and I can also be a little nonchalant. Not a good combination! But sometimes I’m just full of bad luck. It does not matter how much I’ve traveled, because I keep the doctor’s visits when I’m traveling. These doctor visits are the less pleasant things of traveling, but I have accepted that it is part of it. After all, it has happened to me so often, that I have become accustomed to it in the meantime. So if you think that I never went wrong in my journey, then after reading this blog you will know that it is certainly not the case!
