G-string Journey

One Wild Journey, One Crazy Couple, One Life to Live

Why G-String Journey?

I have lived on a shoestring, I’ve lived on the edge, and I have lived through the idea of never wearing a G-string again. I now realize there is nothing harder than living on the edge, on a shoestring, in a G-string if you are suffering from digestive issues!

I have lived and worked overseas, at times in dangerous places, for over twenty years. One ill-fated day, however, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. CD is a debilitating digestive disease under the best of circumstances – it’s mind-blowing in a warzone. I was informed by every doctor that I needed to leave Afghanistan immediately in order to undertake treatment, which included steroids and immunosuppressants. I decided, instead, to stay and fight the so-called disease in my own way. My four year battle with food and willpower, my extensive reading and trial and error, my determination to keep an adventurous lifestyle and sense of humour, all lead me to believe there is no such thing as Crohn’s disease. In my mind, it is numerous symptoms of something that is bothering you. The hardest part is pinpointing what that is.

Still pinpointing, but living life to the fullest, I thought I would share some of my journey – from food choices, to adventures in Afghanistan, to planning a car trip from Kabul to Cork, during which I have every intention of wearing my G-string, without a bathroom in sight!

This blog is dedicated to travel and health stories that provide food for thought, insight, inspiration, and entertainment. Let me know if it is as helpful to you as it is for me to write it!

    Henry, this you? WTF are you up to now? No sunscreen and no undies. Could be worse. Hope you don’t have to scale the Pinnacles, they are brutal and tough to get over. Stay safe sista.
