Diabetic Cyborg Life 8/23: Nothing Worth Having Comes Easily, Pt. 1

All systems are a go for a visit to my online love in Bangladesh. I talked myself out of it before, but February, after vaccinations for Typhoid, Hepatitis A/B and COVID–19, is the current plan. After talking out the “stacking time” before and long sleepless nights, I decided to commit myself to this cause.

Reservations are felt and restlessly considered nightly, but I am doing it in February. I plan to get the COVID shot after letting a month or more of people get it just before leaving. I figure that will give plenty of time to see the effectiveness and side effects possible with the first few vaccines.

A mask will still be worn until I am in the plane under that HEPA filtered vents and then back on after a minute. The flights will be long and hard, 20+ total and short layovers in Doha and London. I say, the one driving force behind all this is my passion for the hand of the woman I love who lives in Bangladesh.

I will share travel logs and stories as the 22 days of travel occur over the trip. This blog, live and my presence online might have a break in there somewhere , but fear not, I will be back with stories galore I am sure.
