Traveling to Walt Disney World isn’t easy. You run yourself ragged for the week before your trip, making sure everything at work is done, everything at home is done, everything you need is packed and that you’re all ready to go. You’ve spent a couple of late nights and didn’t get enough sleep. Then you board a plane full of people and are sealed in for several hours, surrounded by coughing, hacking and sneezing passengers who didn’t want to miss out on their vacations. You know what happens next, right? Runny, stuffy nose and coughing. Or maybe your child has an eye or ear infection. Or you might be suffering from a case of the stomach flu or food poisoning from that buffet last night. Whatever the cause, being sick while at Walt Disney World isn’t fun. After all, this is supposed to be the happiest place on earth, right?
A few years ago, Joe and I used a couple we selected from Trusted Housesitters to watch our house and dog when we were going to be out of town for 3 weeks. We had a huge list of “dog things” written for them, including info on food and medications, favorite toys, etc. We also included her medical history and contact information for both her regular vet and our local after-hours emergency vet of choice, in case something happened and she needed medical treatment while we were away.
Meanwhile, fast forward to today and I saw one of those realty TV shows about an animal medical center and a new patient they had who was there with its people while they were on vacation. That got me to wondering what’s out there to help you if you’re traveling with your pet and you have a pet emergency? How do you know where to go?
Turns out, not surprisingly, there’s a website that can help!
If there’s one thing that can really gross people out, it’s when passengers take their shoes off – or worse, their shoes AND SOCKS off – while on an airplane. I mean really, PassengerShaming.com has DOZENS of entries about it!
Grossness factor notwithstanding, a foot-related issue of the stinkiest kind recently happened on a plane that was way worse than just taking your shoes off to give your toes some wiggle room.
When you’re visiting Central Florida from out of town, the last thing you want to deal with is a dental emergency. Whether it’s a filling that fell out, an abcessed tooth, issues with a crown, bridge, veneer or space maintainer, or just about anything else, the pain and inconvenience could really put a damper on your visit.
But did you know there’s a mobile dentist in the Orlando area who can come to you to help you with your dental problem? Neither did I! (and I live here!) Unfortunately, a friend of ours, Cathy, got to learn all about this mobile dental office first hand, when she would up with a very painful dental emergency.
