The Essential Guide to Travelling with a Medical Condition
Virtuoso Traveler - The Wellness Issue
Most people love to travel and rightly so. The world has so much to explore and enjoy, so why should you be restricted to the UK alone when planning your next holiday? What’s more, if you have a medical condition, you shouldn’t be worried about travelling abroad – as long as you take the right precautions. Instead, it can be pretty easy to journey around the world and see the amazing sights on offer. This is regardless of whether you’re elderly, disabled, or even have a medical condition.
All’s well in our February issue of Virtuoso Traveler, focusing on vacations for mind, body, and soul. Learn how to keep active while river cruising, forest bathe in Japan, unplug in Big Sky Country, and eat healthy food at 30,000 feet.
