Recently I was selected as an applicant for Jauntaroo a travel and tourism company that was making headline news with a campaign to find a chief world explorer to travel and blog. The coveted Chief World Explorer job was open for a month to anyone in the world to apply, with over 3,000 applicants I was selected to be one of them. The applicants are chosen on a few things, Who you are, what you have done, and your marketability. each applicant is to make a 60 second video. Mine is about my travels and philanthropic activities. You can vote for each applicant by clicking on their link. A screen shot of mine is pictured here.
I left the north and have traveled to southern Germany and into Austria then across the country to Slovakia. I am in Bratislava, where I have arranged to see a private doctor who can give me a shot for my second installment of Rabies.
Another doctors office – Bratislava, Slovakia
How did I get here you wonder? When I was playing Volleyball in Germany I met a woman who I became friends with. She played volleyball in a near by city and would hang out with my team and same group of friends. She was kind enough to introduce me to some of her friends and family in Slovakia.
I checked my schedule and thought it would work. I wanted to visit Budapest, Hungary so she mentioned that I should swing by into Bratislava and she would be able to help me find a doctor to get my second round of shots.I was able to consult with a doctor however when I asked about getting a Yellow Fever shot, they told me that I wasn’t able to get it at this time so I received my second rabies shots. So ill have to get another shot in another country before I depart to the other regions of the world.
Grrrr! this is taking a lot of time and a bit stressful each time I go to a new doctors office I have to pay a set up fee and then the visitation on top of the shots. Learn your lesson from me folks. Get all your shots in one state/ country on doctor to avoid all the extra costs and stress..
While playing volleyball in Germany I have met some good people, Baška is one of them. Her and her family invited me to come visit Bratislava which happens to be the capital of Slovakia. I was excited to not only see it but learn first hand from her family about their history and the city. A very inviting family, I had some home cooked meals and toured all around seeing the city for its true character. What a city, for all that it is the good the bad and the in between.
The epic stairs to the top of Bratislava’s castle. Can you see me?
