It is well established that air travel raises the risk of potentially fatal blood clots. Did you know, however, that traveling by car, bus, boat, and train can also be risky? Anytime that you sit still for more than 1-2 hours, your blood begins to coagulate. Coagulation means clots. This risk is increased for anyone who has thrombophilia, clotting disorders, surgery, pregnancy, hormone use, and/or a history of blood clots. Once you have had a pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), you need to be extra cautious when traveling as you are at an increased risk of a second clot. As traveling is already a risk, if you have a history of clotting, you will need to be especially careful when you travel.

All of the magazines also want photos for their magazines as well as articles. These can be exotic locations, a river near your home or your favorite anchorage.
I’m currently in contact with a travel agent, who’s researching fares for me. So far, they seem to be hovering around U.S $1,600, round-trip. I’ll update this information, including the route (these long flights all have significant stopovers in at least one other country, such as Thailand), the travel time, and which airline/s I’ll be flying once I settle on a ticket.
I had originally planned to include all my Siberian escapades in just one book, but after I started writing I realised that there was so much material that I should try and put each journey into its own book. I’m now writing the second adventure, and hoping that it will take less time to complete than the first one did. The story is actually longer, but I have learned so much about publishing that things should be simpler now – as long as I don’t get too distracted in planning my next adventure!
