Fun fact

There’s a little to learn from every book. The kind of knowledge that builds in you the edifice of interest. 

Preventive medicine, although a vital essence of health services is seldom about discovery. With tonnes of statistical data and countless ethical and social information, it becomes a rather sore sight for the eye. 

It wasn’t until I found the word Emporiatrics that my mind was aroused from its never ending reverie. 

For all music lovers, like Katy Perry so eloquently put, I was Wide Awake and the book had me hooked. 

It’s the magnetic attraction that I seem to have towards the unknown. Be it habits, places, people, curiosity has always been a crucial driving force in my life. In anyone’s life for that matter. 

Only when you want to know something do you actually dig deeper. 

Without beating around the bush, this post is to tell you about the very word that I highlighted before. 

Emporiatrics 

Go ahead and Google it. It’s the study of diseases and their control in travellers. Also known as travel medicine. Did you know that such a thing existed? I certainly didn’t. 

A gentle advice to travellers all over the world, they say that the journey is more important than the end. Well, if you’re not careful, you might not even live to see the end. 

On that note, take your meds, vaccinations(they do not cause autism), and necessary precautions before you set sail and be sure to take loads of pictures to document your experiences! 

Bon voyage!
