I’m Epileptic & Can’t Scuba Dive (As Told By GIFs)

 

Hey guys! Well after I canned my former blog, Not Done Travelling, and started this one, I intended for a long time to put some of my favourite posts from the old site up here. Unfortunately I just never got around to it. But I was thinking about this one the other day and decided to put it up. Here is the post that was my most popular from my former travel blog. Enjoy!

It’s more of a pain in the butt having to tell people that I’m epileptic than it is actually having it.

I also desperately want to learn to scuba dive one day. And until this week I must have been living under a rock, because I had no idea that would be a problem.
