Tuesday's Traveler

Yesterday evening I traveled to Maine for the week for work. As you may remember, I'm a frequent flyer, a road warrior of sorts, trying to stay on the fit train in hotels.

When I travel, I tend to observe much more than normal. Mr. Potts would tell you I don't miss a thing under normal circumstances.

The airport, however, can be an interesting place. Lots to observe. For someone who doesn't miss anything, it can be sensory overload.

Yesterday, thankfully, was fairly calm. Most people aren't vacationing now with the kids getting ready to go back to school.

The flight wasn't crowded, so I had an empty seat beside me. As I sat in the window seat, I had an opportunity to look at the clouds.

I've always wondered what a cloud feels like. I imagine soft & cushy, but then again, I could be remembering a toilet paper commercial.

I watched an amazing sunset. And let me tell you, sunsets from a plane knock the pants off of sunsets from the ground.

Either way, Tuesday's Traveler Tip.

Take a moment to soak in the beauty you're surrounded by. No matter where you are, enjoy it.

I wish I could take credit, but I just can't.

I was flying with Little Nephew yesterday and thought how amazing it was to be up above the clouds.

That would require me to open the window while I fly...which ups my scaredy-cat level immensely, I have to say.

I wish I liked flying more.

I remember the first time seeing the clouds from a plane when I was 5 or 6 years old, and the memory is still so vivid! I just couldnt take my eyes away and it was just so amazing to be up above them. Um, I also thought i could jump out and play on them without falling through- this was before I learned what clouds were made of :))
