Looking for a gift for those people in your life who’s got chronic pain? How about the caregivers and spouses of people with hidden disabilities that make life a little bit harder–conditions like lupus, MS, diabetes, endometriosis, Crohn’s Disease, or cancer.
Get them each a copy of The Imperfect Traveler’s Guide to Traveling With Pain. This slim volume with the friendly letters on the cover can help people with all sorts of hidden disabilities out of their homes and enjoying great vacations. Traveling With Pain, which includes a lot of info that’s not in this blog, can take a new traveler with pain from dreaming of a trip to planning and packing, through the airport and rental car counter, past the hotel reception desk, and out to the beach or the mountain or the lake or the downtown shopping area.
The paperback, which runs only about 100 pages so that it doesn’t weigh a traveler down, costs $16.99.
For Kindle and Nook users, my publisher has a clue and provides a genuine bargain: all the same content for $3.99 (Kindle) and $4.99 (Nook). Younger travelers with pain who use iPads and iPhones can run a Kindle app to read the book. Because it doesn’t have bunches of graphics, it reads fine on handheld devices.
Valuable for years to come, The Imperfect Traveler’s Guide to Traveling With Pain is a gift that keeps on giving. For one thing, it’s filled with useful information rather than clichés like “the gift that keeps on giving.”
Oh, and when you buy Traveling With Pain, you’re supporting this blog and making possible the publication of new Imperfect Traveler’s Guides.
