Roadtripping with Bronchiectasis: My Suite Secrets
On a Texas to New Mexico road trip to visit my grandchildren. Then on to California for two months.
Traveling with bronchiectasis takes a lot of planning. Not only airway clearance but also ways to stretch and strengthen in my hotel room. Basically a backup plan when the hotel gym is too crowded.
I love this door anchor that you can loop your bands through for a good workout.
One trick to traveling is whenever possible, we try to get a suite with a separate bedroom. They are much easier to come by than they used to be and you can even get some mid-price range accommodations that have suites.
This way I can do my airway clearance with privacy. And that’s important to me. Also, I can take an afternoon nap without my husband having to tiptoe around the room.
This extra space makes a huge difference for us. I don’t think we would be so willing to go on road trips without it.
Do you have any traveling tips? Please share!
