Travel Tip Reality
I’m home! I’m exhausted. I’m trying to blog in complete sentences and it’s a challenge. Let’s start from the beginning…
We woke up at 4am to get to the airport for our first flight. I made an egg sandwich to eat for breakfast as some point.
Travel tip: You can opt out of the naked scanner for a pat down. They’re not bad and actually make me feel better than that controversial x-ray machine.
Travel tip: Try to eat the grossest smelling foods you can so no one tries to strike up a conversation with you.
Travel tip reality: Strangers ask why you’re taking pictures of said food and end up becoming your new best friend. Good thing no one can have too many friends (especially the girl with 2 total).
Rest of breakfast – cherries! They were super cheap in Florida and I stocked up (by eating 6 pounds in 24 hours).
Travel tip: Get a massive Dunkin Donuts iced coffee.
Travel tip reality: Get up to pee 3 times during a 1.5 hour flight.
We made it to Atlanta with a few hours to kill so I walked around in a tired stupor. I ended up saving my lunch for the plane (see smelly food travel tip).
Travel tip: Bring a cute guy along to lean on so you can sleep.
Travel tip reality: Wake up to find you’re leaning into the aisle, have thrown your neck pillow 3 rows down and have drool stains on your shirt.
Travel tip: Pack P&J for a snack.
Travel tip reality: I packed my PB&J in a paper towel and put it in a baggie with cashews and peanuts. It made the nuts soggy Fail.
Our fridge was super bare when we got home…
So after a nice 3 mile walk to decompress we hit up the grocery store. Much better!
I’m exhausted. See you later
