I've spent a lot of time travelling. Last year I spent more nights in a hotel room
than in my own bed. So, I'm going to node what I know
We've all had frustrating
experiences while travelling. The good news is that many of these can be avoided
with a little good planning
, or Valium1
Being mentally prepared for the trip is a big part of enjoying the journey. Before you start, realize that there will be delays
and frustrations. I know I'm always tempted to get angry
with the people around me when things go wrong and I'm stuck in an airport. Especially if it's a holiday
and I planned on being with my family
. I am uncomfortable when I arrive at a business meeting
wearing casual clothes because my luggage
has been sent to another city. But, after these things happen enough times it's easy
for them and take them in stride.
I've even been known to have fun, such as my O'Hare Christmas
is half the fun
and most of the challenge
