• So gonna throw up

    We decided to take a road trip last Saturday to a National Park with an incredible tall mountain and breathtaking views.  So we got in the car with some snacks for the trip and headed out.  Then it began.  I started to get dizzy and nauseous.  I did a quick mental checklist of everything I had eaten to see which was the culprit of my icky feeling.  Then I realized, oh my God – I’m carsick!  I haven’t been carsick since I was about 12 years old!  It was awful.  I lowered the window and stuck my head out like an anxious dog but not even the cold wind on my face was taking the queasiness I was feeling away.  I was moments from hurling my KFC lunch when we finally arrived at Ben Lomond.  Unfortunately I was too sick to appreciate the magnificent mountain or the fact that we were at cloud level! 

    Nonetheless, if anyone is looking for a place to visit in Tasmania, Ben Lomond National Park seems like a good start – mind you, I wasn’t able to enjoy myself due to an impending sense of regurgitating doom but I might be interested in going again if I can drug myself up on Dramamine first.

      Hey Y, do you think you might have had altitude sickness? They say people who are prone to carsickness are not necessarily prone to altitude sickness and vice-versa. I hear that LOTS of water is just about the only real preventative measure you can take.
