Travel Day

It is so nice to get away from home for a change of scenery and fun in the sun, but I do not enjoy the long travel days. Getting to the airport on time, parking, checking in bags and going through security are all stressful and annoying parts of travel. When I fly, I always wonder how people do it, who travel for business every week. It would get old, very fast.

Also, today I am traveling from Tampa, Florida with many palm trees in the airport, to Detroit Metro Airport with no palm trees in the airport - lol. Leaving a beautiful destination is always hard because you know you are flying back to reality.

While the break was very relaxing and enjoyable, I really do look forward to seeing my husband, my house and my puppy. I also look forward the wonderful fall days ahead. Once I get through this travel day and all the inconveniences, I will be home and that is the best feeling of all :-)



  1. Always nice to go but even better to return!

  2. I know exactly what you mean...TPA to DTW is never "pretty"! Just be glad there's no snow here -- yet!! Hope you enjoyed your trip!

  3. Safe travels dear friend! BIG HUGS!

  6. “Getting to the airport on time, parking, checking in bags and going through security are all stressful and annoying parts of travel.” This is true, but there are things that you can do to make these parts of traveling less stressful. For example, a week or two before your flight, make the reservation for your parking slot. This way, you won’t have to worry about going to the airport early just to look for a space to park your car. You can ask to be dropped off directly at the airport entrance with the shuttle service of the airport parking company that you choose. I wish you more happy and fulfilling travels in the future!
