Travelling with cystic fibrosis is quite a journey. And when you travel in India with CF you have to come a long way………….
So recently, me and my family went to ahmedabad, Diu and Somnath temple situated in/near Gujarat, India from DELHI TO AHMEDABAD was approx 15 hours journey by train……
Reached ahmedabad at 10 in the morning everything was going good met family friends visited Gandhi ashram (a beautiful,peaceful place) , kankariya lake ( a must go to place if you are going to ahmedabad) it took about a whole day to fully see kankariya lake………
Kankariya lake is not only a lake it is a all in one package, there is zoo,boat riding, toy train ride, amusement park and a lot more by the end of the day i was hell lot of tired, breathless and coughing up a lot. Took my inhaler and man oh man what a relief it was after we reached the hotel took my Asthelin nibuliser, Saline , Physio by my mother, Tobamist nibuliser and i slept like a babyyy……..
Woke up the next day , not a hectic day met family friends ate a lot of delicious mouth watering GUJRATI FOOD with my creons of course and if you do not take the regular medications on time then you are in big trouble my friend. I took my medications on time regularly as i didn’t want any trouble for me or for my family…
Took off from Ahmedabad to Somnath temple it was 8 hour drive. Somnath was an adventurous trip 8 hr drive got me exhausted and moreover the atmosphere there was salty as there was sea around it ,visited temple early morning, one of the most beutiful temple of India, saw the mesmerizing sea for the first time but was disturbed because I am not adapted to salty air a lot of cough and phelgm was pulled out of my body, it was like taking 3% saline (which we take in india) a lot of phelgm was released and gave a kind of relief but was disturbing me a little bit then took asthalin nibuliser which gave a lot of relief in breathlessness. Visited the temple and took of to Diu (a 5 hour drive and i was like not again)
The most beutiful place i have seen in my entire 17 years of life.
Checked into the hotel hut, the view was mesmerizing from the hut, ate some food left for the beach in front of the hotel just 10 steps away from the hotel.
Played at the beach with my family for about 2 hrs and after 2 hrs got so exhausted you can’t even imagine, took a bath after coming from the beach and taking a bath is a different journey if you are exhausted. (breathlessness at its peak).Took a great two hour nap and after the nap i could feel the air move into my lungs i could feel myself inhaling and exhaling again.the freshness then took another level. Ate pulses vegies and chappati at night (typical indian food) slept again after a little walk.
THE SEE OFF:-
Next morning took off from diu, again 5 hour drive from diu to ahmedabad. reached ahmedabad, crashed at a relatives place ate a lot of food and explored some local market visited more friends and then it was time to say goodbye to ahmedabad once again. Took a flight (vistara airlines – first time traveled by air) 1 hr 45 minutes flight reached Delhi airport took a cab and reached home sweet home the feeling of coming back to home was of another level….
So that was my journey from DELHI-AHMEDABAD-SOMNATH-DIU-AHMEDABAD-DELHI , a 5 day adventure of CFr
