I don’t travel well. I should qualify that – I don’t do air travel well. In fact, I suck at it.
I had to travel for work last week. My first work travel in 12 years and my first air travel in 9 years. Um. Things have change a lot since 2006. So much so that I missed my flight out on Monday morning, As I sat on the train waiting at the farthest station from the airport and we didn’t move for 10 minutes, I knew I was going to miss the plane.
Lesson: If the flight is at 11 AM, leave the house at 7:30 AM, not 8:30 AM. In fact, leaving at 7AM would likely be better.
What I did do well:
- I packed 3 ThinkThin bars so I’d have a source of protein in the mornings. Worked like a charm.
- I packed the right clothes! Not too hot, not too cool.
- I let my boss do the driving
I hope I don’t have to travel again, but I have a feeling I will. And if I find it will be more often than anticipated, I will be investing in some new luggage.
For now, I’m thrilled to be home with my babies. This one is waiting on me.
