Missing my besties 30th birthday trip to Dubai last year due to sickle cell complications left me feeling absolutely gutted. I knew there was no way I could top a memorable trip to Dubai but when I found out that a Dubai experience would be coming back to London, I figured that's as close as I was going to get.
In the past 9 months I’ve done a whole lot of travelling; 6 different countries to be exact. That’s probably no big deal for any other individual, but it may sound slightly extreme for someone who is living with sickle cell. It has taken me years to be able to travel this much without risk and without fear; but believe me I have taken many L’s in the process.
