Nursed Back To Health

Oct 29, 2015

The city of Akureyri found me in a dire condition. After several days of trying to treat a urinary tract infection by drinking fluids like a bro at a tailgate party, I was shaking, defeated–like a bro after a tailgate party.

I had called World Nomads and asked for help finding a doctor. One hour later and I was still waiting for a call back. When I meekly told our Couchsurfing host about my ailment, he sprang into action with more energy than I could’ve imagined.┬áSeveral calls later (to the doctor to ensure that I could be immediately seen and to his sister for a ride there), I was on my way to the hospital. Seventy five minutes and $60 dollars later, I had antibiotics and couldn’t have felt more grateful.

Thank you again, Sveinn. And thanks, World Nomads, for reimbursing me.

It would make my day to hear from you. Let's be friends.
