I do a lot of traveling, in fact way more than I thought I would when I left my job after having traveled extensively while I worked there.
Growing up, my mom worked for United Airlines which afforded us the luxury of extensive travel long before
it became so popular.
I remember being a little kid flying 1st class all the time because we flew standby and always got upgraded when we got on board.
I thought I was so cool too. I’d ease on into my seat and watch everyone else corral themselves back into coach, thinking to myself, “Sucks to be YOU!”
Until I started buying my own tickets and opted for the back of the plane. I had no idea how much it actually cost to sit in first! Doik.
Flying is 1 thing I have never been afraid of though, not even after 911; I was on a flight a week later.
There was no way I was about to let those terrorists keep me from seeing the world!
One thing that does scare me about traveling is eating out. Whether I’m at home or abroad, food can become downright scary at times.
Airplane food in and of itself is beyond frightening. Have you ever read the ingredients? Even the peanuts are crap!
Eating gluten and dairy free can definitely present challenges for me when I’m on the road since I’m away from my own kitchen and normal rest stops where I know I can get what I want.
But that doesn’t stop me from making sure I make my nutrition first.
I shot a short video for you when I was in Brazil, thanks to my friend Shannon who shot it, to help you make good choices for yourself when you’re on the road.
I included my Travel Tips handout too to download and keep handy for next time you’re in a plane, train or automobile.
It just goes to show that no matter where you are, you can always get what you need.
Just ask and it is given.
