First – what’s not to love about a man in a kilt? But besides the obvious appeal of the kilt, I am happy because it means that I overcame a few challenges to get to where I am now. When we decided to come to the NH Highland Games, it was a 50/50 chance I would be able to make it. Lot’s of people and long car rides can be hell on my vertigo. But I was going to try it. We left late so our 2 ½ hour car ride took almost four – in stop and go traffic. Yuck! But I made it with a minimal amount of spin.
Next up, the games themselves. Lot’s of people, lot’s of movement, lots of color. The day started with a ride on an old school bus, you know the ones, they rock back and forth and seem to sway. I felt some spin starting, but seemed to get on solid ground right at the right time. It was a great day – sunny and warm. There was so many things to look at (and buy!) I did start to feel like I was spinning a bit, but again a short stop and a bit of Meclizine and I was good to go. We had a great time and heard a lot of great piping! Back at our room, I am feeling tired and a bit head-achy, but ok. Overall the day went well and I had no major episode’s so I’m calling it a win.
