Travelling with a stoma

So, obviously we made it through security no problem. I was quite lucky to not be asked any questions about my bag or supplies at either end of our journey (I have heard several ostomates have had pat-downs as well as having to show their bags to the security guards when travelling). The guards at the UK end waved me through the scanner and that was that. When we landed, we didn’t even see the guards because everything is done with machines.

The flight itself, although a little turbulent to begin with, went pretty well. There was no blowing up of my bag, no excessive amount of gas and no having to use the tiny planes tiny toilet. Admittedly, our flight was only about an hour so I imagine I would have needed to use the bathroom on a longer flight.

As for the last couple of days, they have been great! Today (Sunday) is the third and last day of the LAN party and we are just waiting for dinner to arrive then we’ll be packing up in a few hours. It’s been an amazing three days of just games, YouTube and more games. I have met some amazing people too and am really looking forward to the next LAN.

Tomorrow is a chill day of not doing a lot but Tuesday we are visiting Amsterdam. I’ve never been so I’ll be taking a lot of photos. We have a rough idea of what we are doing whilst we are there so it should be a fun-filled day. We fly back to the UK on Wednesday evening.
