Another Zombie Night
Another night spent in the airport is another night without brushing my teeth. It is another night of going through the motions and acting as if a zombie. It’s restless sleeping, people watching, sneaking things through security, facebook checks, and expensive food. At the beginning of my adventures this was a foreign activity and now it’s more common than sleeping in my own bed. Traveling is not convenient or comfortable. It is solely to get from one place to another the cheapest and fastest way possible, and often times you learn something in the process.
It’s always waiting. Sitting. Watching. Waiting. People complain and people get mad, but really, there is no reason for any of it. The flight attendants can’t control the weather and the pilot doesn’t decide the rules. What happens happens. The best way to deal with a situation is to be flexible and easygoing. People are happier dealing with you and more things go your way if you can just sit back and take it.
Travel advice… Bring clothes you like but don’t care too too much about. That way you can donate the clothes you brought to make room for the clothes you buy!
