Moody Style: Cruising Altitude

I’m finally in Chicago for my Memorial weekend getaway. I’m super excited about seeing the Sears Tower, shopping on the Magnificent Mile, visiting 2 Anthro stores, going to the Navy Pier and eating at some amazing food. However, the only thing that I wasn’t excited about is the travel portion of my trip.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love to travel, but I always get a little anxious when I have to go to the airport.  I usually make sure that I leave my house about 2 hours before my flight, which ideally should be enough time to park and get through security.  As much as I plan out my trip, I never know what to expect when I travel.  On my way to the airport today, there was a small fender bender that backed up traffic on the interstate.  Once I got to parking lot, I had to wait about 15 minutes for the shuttle. Also, my connecting flight was delayed about 20 minutes pushing my arrival time back. 

With all that being said my number one most annoying thing about traveling is waiting to board and deplane the airplane.  I know that everyone has to do it and I even know what to expect, but there is something about it makes me feel rushed.  I usually have a tough time finding space in an overhead been and today one of my fears came true.  I had to put my carry-on in an overhead bin towards the front of the plane and I sat in the very back of the plane.  When I got to the bin my luggage was gone.  I asked the flight attendants about it, but all of them were as confused as I was.  As I walked on the jetway, I saw my bag being dragged by an older couple and I quickly approached them.  They obviously grabbed the wrong bag. I was just glad that I saw them in time.  Anyways, I’m not going to let this experience ruin my trip.  I plan to have lots of fun this weekend.  Do you have any pet peeves about the traveling process?
