    Hello all.

    I am new Travel Agent/Advisor and am thinking of gearing myself to helping those with disabilities and chronic illnesses to have a great vacation. I myself suffer from Crohns Disease so at times it can be a challenge. I would love some feedback on my latest blog post, Traveling with a disability or chronic illness.

    Great info!

    Have you heard of issues with bringing medication to counties where it may be banned?  I know Japan has some strict rules and heard the same for UAE…

    Josh,. I have not heard about that.  It is definitely something I am going to look into.  Thank you so much for the tip. We are always taught to bring the bottle, but I guess if a country has banned the drug, it can still be an issue.

    It can be a hassle:

    I know one guy that flies from Australia to Europe but has to take a longer route via Thailand because he takes medicine that has a substance that is banned in UAE.

    Maybe you could write a post about that for your site!

    Thanks, for sharing this info. But as per the law suggests, there are some restrictions in countries related to drugs and medications.
