Lindsay Lohan has taken a break from her new straight-laced London life for a nice little holiday in French Polynesia. Things have been going great… except for the fact that she’s been really ill after contracting the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus.

The virus isn’t deadly, but it can cause fever, joint pain, swelling, etc. There’s no known cure and it can be pretty debilitating until you start to recover, so it’s not a pleasant experience, in any case. But don’t worry too much about Lindsay – she’s determined not to let it get the better of her precious vacation time.

In any case, I love travel but this is like, my biggest fear – I totally have the shit luck that I’d go to some beautiful country and come back with intestinal parasites, bug-borne diseases and anything else that can happen to a human being. Hope LiLo recovers soon!
