I was waiting for a British Airways offer my travel agent said was coming so I intended to leave the UK in the second week in May.
However, I received a call from Ghana about issues with my land so I need to go to Ghana sooner than expected so will have to buy a ticket and go by the end of the week!!!
PANIC! PANIC PANIC!
I called my travel agent who is based in Brixton arcade (he’s really good) and booked a ticket leaving on Friday, in 4 days!!!! The ticket was £800. Once that was purchased it was set, I was going to start a new life in Ghana.
I have a doctor’s appointment for the FOLLOWING week for my injections and malaria tablets, so I have to get that sorted asap. The annoying thing is my doctors surgery never have any appointments…errggghh! When I called them to ask for an emergency appointment they said there was nothing they could do. Ater my mum had a word (lol) they said a doctor would call me back to discuss it further. When the doctor called me back she said she could write a prescription for me to collect the same malaria tablets I have used previously, Lariam weekly tablet. However she only gave me enough for 6 months. She checked my injections and the only one outstanding was Yellow Fever and I heard officials were asking people at the airport in Ghana for proof by showing the yellow fever certificate so I had to make sure mine was up to date. Unfortunately my surgery no longer carry out that injection so I had to get it done elsewhere.
I went to the new travel clinic in Akerman Health Centre in Brixton and paid £65 for it.
