Goodie Bag# 36 The Chronic Babe.com Newsletter For Tuesday, July 24

My subscription to this every-other-Tuesday newsletter has just begun and I love it already! This issue is devoted to travelling with chronic illness as part of your baggage. Great links, great articles, great tips!

From the newsletter:

Travel's tricky, but planning helps! Travel used to be extra-hard for the Editrix, who, among other things, has chronic foot pain. Standing in line, walking across massive airports, trotting around cities—not easy for a Babe in pain! But she's learned to ask for help and pack smart when it comes to medication, two things that help ensure ease of travel.

New today at ChronicBabe.com: Our top travel tips
Come along with Jocelyn Tomkinson, who teaches us tons of great travel tips she's learned while globe-trotting—wheelchair and all! She has solo "chairpacked" around the world and has a lot of good advice for preparation and practical use on the road, whether you live with a disability, chronic illness, or both. This is a must-read for any ChronicBabe on the go!
