Airport Drama...........

"OK so now you can carry your bag over to that area." Excuse me? Yes, sorry but our conveyor belts are taking luggage for other flights.  I wanted to say are you f__king serious, but I didn't.  So I went to that area and asked a loading person to take my bag and see it was loaded. I waited and then tipped him. First, it is make sure your baggage is never out of your sight, and then just carry it over there and leave it. Oh, and in order to board I had to sign something allowing for a possible random opening of my luggage.

It was so different years ago. If this is progress I really am an old fart. It is now 12:50 AM and my flight doesn't depart for another couple of hours. Give me strength.........Later.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

What nonsense!  It doesn't sound like progress to me either.

Hi Sheila,
I admire you for embarking on such a journey at this stage of life. The kind of adventure you're on takes a great deal of stamina (and patience).

I am grateful I did a lot of international traveling when I was younger. I have no desire to endure those brutal flight schedules any more.  I'm content with road trips and cruises now.  But, I know that's not your style.  Enjoy the journey!  You're going to have some wonderful stories to share with us.

Hi Sheila Anderson

I feel your pain.  I know you travel a lot and if you feel this way, it must really be bad. I live 2 hours from PHX so flying is a real pain. In fact, I can't stand it!  I will probably fly to Maui next year with the family. We will see... Good luck and safe travels!

Thank you Sheri. As I get older the flights and travel are harder. I am OK now but the reality looms.     Sheila

Airports have become such a fustercluck with way too much security that you have to wonder about.  We also only travel with carry on whenever possible just to simplify things.

Hi Georgie. I get that and do the same but when I travel to faraway places with long waits in between, I check my carry on. TY      Sheila

I know the journey is supposed to be just as interesting as the destination, but I've found traveling has gone from being fun to being a royal PITA. Especially airports and planes!

I look forward to hearing more about your journey.

Oh, my gosh! That's ridiculous! Who is making up these silly rules?

That's why I pack light, check in early, and take carry-on. If I find I have too much to take, I send it over in advance and mail what I can't carry home. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!!! And don't bite your tongue for any silly airport rules.

I love traveling, but hate airports.  Flying is not the joyous experience it once was, and has become more about herding cattle.
