Your Global Resource for Dental Health and Wellness Travel

Mission - Beyond Borders

One of my passions is informing the traveling population about safe and affordable health care available beyond the U.S., in, Europe and Asia.

There's no need to lose sleep fretting, "Heaven forbid something should happen".

I've been researching the best medical and wellness solutions abroad at medical conventions and hospitals. "Been there. Done that." I'm here to ensure everyone that you will be in good hands and get proper care abroad in the nearby wealthy countries of Malaysia or Thailand when visiting, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar.

Turkey's innovative, legendary healthcare dates back to before the Spanish Inquisition. Some of the hospitals I visited in Turkey are uniquely 5-star!

During a trip to Wales, when I invited Ann (my 80ish Lady Pal) to visit me in California for Cancer care, she fussed about the high cost of travel insurance. Whereas most Americans ignored travel insurance altogether, until now.

Well surprise, I'm turning 70 this year and just discovered that most insurers won't even accept clients after the magical age of 70.  

However, if you check with your Medicare insurance plan, you might find that you would be covered in foreign hospitals.

According to a doctor at a hospital in Paris, they would accept my insurance and, "Not leave me to die in the street..." but, he said seriously, "It would require a lot of paperwork."  I double checked with Scan, who confirmed I'd be covered until I got home..."But the paperwork." Fortunately, everyone takes credit cards, so don't leave home without one ... or two, just in case.

Chiang Mai

A few years ago, during a recent Medical Tourism FAM trip to Thailand, courtesy of Thai Tourism, I re-visited one of my favorites cities, Chiang Mai. Chang Mai is hands down, one of the best places to enjoy Songkran, a three to a five-day celebration of the Buddhist New Year. What started as a sprinkle of…

Lost in LA. Found in Japan

Gracias, Mon Cher, Amigas More than a year ago, found Yuichi and Bita at a Meet-Up in Westwood; promising a lesson on how to live a life of joy and happiness. At the time, I was angry and singing the blues. Since then, these lovely, dedicated, teachers of Buddhism in Japan, have become my dear…

Bath, Tenby Castles, Pirate Caves, and Promises of Wellness in Wales.

The Roman Baths have fascinated me since 1980, the very first time I visited England and Wales. The reconstruction started around then and lasted for many years, meaning a good number of visits stepping around ancient debris.

Turkey – Much More Than Expected (Pt.2) Life in Istanbul

The first few days and nights in Turkey, before the Convention were mine to enjoy. The sites and sounds of three different neighborhoods in Istanbul added a variety of flavors to my time in old Constantinople. A nondescript, local BnB in a residential neighborhood of touristy Sultanahmet provided a good night’s sleep…and a choice of…

Turkey – Much More Than Expected. (Pt.1) Med-Tourism Convention & 1st Class Hospitals in Istanbul and Ankara

May became June, and instead of Havana, I was on my way to Istanbul, Turkey. I had no expectations. It didn’t matter if the custom was to pick-up 1st-timers at the airport with a donkey and cart, as long as I got to my destination. I was surprised to find a man holding a sign…

Holistic Dental and Medical in Tijuana

Actuality, my visits to Bath, England over the years is where I germinated the idea about “Wellness Along the Roman Trail”. Last year’s visit to Tenby, England, a charming, up-scale, coastal…

Bathing with the natives

Iceland Spent a delightful week in little Iceland, where I am happy to report, I soaked with the locals on a daily basis…in different places, all over town. One can’t help but notice being surrounded by beautiful people, in spirit, as well as in person. There’s an active nightlife that starts lining up around midnight,…
