What is your number one traveling tip?
For those of you that don’t know, we just flew back from a trip to Georgia yesterday. I don’t know, I guess I’ve gotten smarter in my old age and I realized that I probably shouldn’t announce my vacation time on the www. Right? So here I am back and sooooo ready to fill you in on the highlights of my trip but that will have to wait.
My answer to my question has to do with health while traveling. I didn’t fly much growing up (we were more of a road tripping family)…in fact I can think of 3 times I flew prior to meeting Zach. In the almost 3 years since we started traveling together I’ve doubled my lifelong number and I’m excited to add more and more.
The first time I flew home with Zach, I got sick. The second time I flew home with Zach I got sick. I got sick like immediately stepping foot off the plane before even making it to my in-laws house. I’m talking like a cold sick…stuffy nose, chills, irregular temperature, sore throat…the whole gamut.
I’m a teacher, I’m supposed to have a rock solid immune system. Apparently flying is my kryptonite. My in-laws (probably sick of me lounging around needing egg drop soup and herbal tea all the time while asking my mother-in-law if I’m running a fever every two hours) suggested to Zach and I that we swab a little anti-biotic ointment in our noses. It made sense…since I swear I can feel myself feeling sick as I breathe in that nasty recycled air.
So I packed it up, put it in the plastic bag, got it through security, put it on in the restroom (prior to boarding the plane each time).
I arrived in Georgia in good health, I remained in good health, and I came home in good health. It works! It is my best travel tip and I want to share it with anyone.
So how about you? What is your number one travel tip? I probably could use some more tips up my sleeve? And while you’re at it, am I the only one? Do you get sick while flying?
Oh, and by the way, so sorry. I spaced announcing my Giveaway winner. Stay tuned Saturday..I’ll be drawing and announcing. I’m adding and extra $5 for the delay…but I won’t mind if you still decide to enter! Saturday is the day!
