Six Signs the Travel Bug Has Bitten

I feel like I need to preface this with a paragraph about the times I spent gallivanting across the US. Learning about different things and my own personal style of travel. But there is nothing to say. These six things are something I consider to be side effects of my childhood and my go, go, go travel life.

Here are the six signs you have been bitten by the travel bug!

Every time a plane is taking off you want to go with it

Hey, I can’t be the only one that had this overwhelming desire to go everywhere and leave the “normal” life behind. Maybe being a flight attendant is in my future. I’ll get to see the country and the world!

Every time a plane is taking off you know where it is going based on the time of day and knowledge the airline schedule

This one may be because I work for a car rental at the airport location, but I feel it is worth noting I knew this prior to starting work there.

You feel right at home in an airport

I grew up in airports around the US. I know how they function. For me, that provides a sense of security. It is the one thing I can always count on to be the same.

You know more airport codes than any non-airline employee should

I’m always looking up flights and destinations. It’s only natural to know the 3 letter code that gores along with the airport, right? Plus, I’m the daughter of two airline employees and have friends that work for an airline.

When you do travel, you have it down to a science

You have a certain way of doing things. Item A goes in spot A. Item B, spot B. Item C will never ever go in spot A. You look like a seasoned traveler when you step of the Jetway Ramp. Blog post to come on this topic soon.

You carry your passport with you domestically on the off chance you may get to go to some far off exotic locale

A girl can dream, can’t she?
