I woke up in the morning and I didn’t feel right. I couldn’t put my finger on it. We went to breakfast. I only ate a little as I was starting to feel queasy. We were heading to a Truffle Farm and then to the town of Grignan with a tour of the castle. A private cocktail party awaited us there at the castle.
We boarded the coach to leave, and then it hit me. I had to get off the coach and run back to our cabin. I know Muriel didn’t know what to do I had enough time to say “stay on the bus and take lots of photos”.
I ran back to the ship and our cabin and just made it time. I was very sick.
I laid low in the cabin, watched some movies. Eventually I felt ok enough to head up to the lounge to make a peppermint tea. Went back to my room and slept.
When you have chronic Illness’s this can happen at any time. Did I accidentally eat some gluten the night before? The kitchen and wait staff on the ship were always so accommodating with my dietary requests. So did I do it to myself? Was it the heat? August in France can be quite warm and that could have had something to do with it. I don’t do the heat too well.
They all got back around 2pm so after Muriel had a bite to eat, I was ready to go exploring. We were moored at a beautiful town called Vivers. I certainly didnt want to stay out of action for too long. There was time enough when I got home to be sick. Holidays was not the place.
Next post: Truffles….The eldest sister Muriel has written this and provided the photos. Thank you so much Muriel, you might have to write some more posts.
