It's travel time again!
On Wednesday night we'll be taking a red-eye flight headed for New Orleans and I'm super stoked.
But I'm not gonna lie, I'm also stressing a bit because there will be SO MUCH TRAVELING in the next week and a half.
As a recap, my trip will involve a red-eye to New Orleans to spend a few days vacation with Mitch before he has to head to Mississippi for work. On Sunday I'll fly to Indianapolis to visit my girlfriend Melissa for a few days. And then I'll fly to Seattle to spend some time with my family before flying home to Hawaii.
Oh yeah, and in between every single flight I have a layover. Layovers of all different amounts of time.
This means I have to lug all my things around seven different airports. Unfortunately for me, I only am familiar with two of them.
Oh lawdy! This should be fun.
Oh oh oh! And I have how many different cities with different weather to pack for? Aye!
Alright, that's the end of my complaining. Because all in all, I am thrilled for this fast and furious vacation. I've packed in a lot in a short amount of time but I am so excited to see my friends and family, and of course, to spend a few days with my man in a new city that we've never been to!
Prepping for the trip is the tricky part. I am a person who hates to check bags when I fly (and since I have so many flights, and so many layovers, it seems risky to do so). So my plan is to attempt to pack everything in my tiny little suitcase and a backpack.
Think I can do it?
I am also taking notes on red-eye flights from the last time I did so. I'm planning on being much better prepared for this late night flight.
All the prep work is half the battle, but I gotta say thank you to all my amazing readers who have sent me loads of good tips on traveling with arthritis . . . and just traveling a lot in general! You people are favorites.
Now to get back to packing . . .
