Travel….a simple word which takes people away from their daily lives to places that they dream of. It’s not always perfect. For example, you may get the only ticket left on the plane and it is right next to the lavatory and while you’re being constantly bumped into by this person and that…you get to enjoy the experience of sitting across from a first time flier. Mr. First Timer just may happen to bend over in the aisle (while aiming towards your face) whilst fumbling with his seat belt, over-sized carry on bag, coat, snacks etc. Once Mr. First Timer finally gets into his seat, he proceeds to take off his shoes (oh yes he did!).
Yes, travelling to other places can be amazing but getting there can be stressful, to say the least. I beg you to not be a Mr. First Timer!
It’s easy to be prepared and find out ahead of time what to expect and how to act; ever heard of Google? Google and individual airline websites can make your experience much more enjoyable for you and those around you. Follow the current TSA rules and it will make your trip to the beach a lot more fun.
Those of you that connect with us on Facebook know that I have been travelling for the past few months including Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, Gulf Shores in Alabama and Austin. I've found a new freedom and love in my middle age – travel!
January will be filled with articles about my recent trips as well as my upcoming escapades (Tybee Island here I come!).
Please make sure you are subscribed to our e-newsletter (located at the top of our right column) so that you don’t miss out on any of our journeys and/or decorating articles from our other site, Nautical Cottage Blog.
Happy January and safe travels to you and yours in 2013! Where are you headed this year?
