I’ll sum up my last two weeks of travel for you and then it will be over with: Feh! Plus free crab legs. So it all evens out.
Working environment update: I’m working from my outdoor office on the deck today. The gentle breezes and birdsong have become unfamiliar to me after the cumulative hours I’ve spent in airports over the last two weeks. Where is the muffled roar of the jets? The rows of vinyl seating with splits and/or unidentified substances ruining the surfaces of the best locations? The ladies rooms littered with damp lengths of toilet paper? The stench of filthy dogbutt is the same, though so there’s comfort in that.
From our Department of Personal Victory: I packed suitable clothing and accessories for travel, work and dining out into a regular rolling business case with a minor amount of overflow to an Ameribag Healthy Back bag. Also managed to get the laptop, cords, etc in there. Incidentals! The trip was from late Sunday night to the wee small hours of Thursday morning and I didn’t repeat any wardrobe combination or accessorizations. Now you know what I mean when I say High Powered Executive Business Woman – packing power! Definitely the way to go.
Helpful packing tip: Secret Solid Deodorant comes in a taller, thinner container than Ban, Sure or Degree. This might not seem significant at first but it might make all the difference, sideways-expansionwise, when you are rolling down the aisle of an Airbus.
