Today I’m joining in for the second month of the BlogHer’13 Monthly Link-up. This month it’s all about Travel and getting to BlogHer’13. If you are attending BlogHer this year, make sure you join in!
2. Are you travelling alone or with a friend? Are you stopping anywhere on your way to Blogher13? I will be traveling with my friend, Diana (from Down Home Traveler) and meeting our friend Amanda (from Princess of the Panhandle) once we get there! We don’t have plans for stopping anywhere on the way since we are flying!
3. What is your least favorite travel story or memory of traveling? Least favorite…hmmm… I haven’t had too many bad travel experiences, thank goodness! I have heard a lot of really bad ones, working for a travel company. My least favorite was probably missing my plane connection in Washington DC, by myself, while in college. I had to wait in line for 3-ish hours to get my hotel & food voucher, then I got 2 hours of sleep at the hotel (without any luggage) then back to the airport for standby. Thankfully I got the first flight out at 6am to get back to Vermont where I was going to college. It really wasn’t that bad – but it was one of my first experiences traveling by myself so it was a little nerve-wracking. Too bad I didn’t have more time, I could have enjoyed the REALLY nice hotel they put me up in and saw some of Washington DC (I still have never been there!)
Also the 9+ hour plane ride from Houston to Argentina was a longggg one but it went by quicker than I ever imagined it would!
4. What is your favorite method of travel? Plane is usually the quickest way to get anywhere I’m going. I like taking the Ferry boats over to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket when I’m home visiting family on Cape Cod. I have taken the train before, but never for a long trip. I think it would be really interesting to go on a long train trip that included sleeping in a cabin on the train!
5. Name one thing you’ll look forward to your travels to BlogHer13? Although I will miss my little one and husband immensely while going to BlogHer13, I look forward to having some Mommy time, learning more about Blogging and having fun with all of my bloggy friends! As far as the traveling aspect goes, paying for a plane ticket will be my least favorite! Dallas to Chicago, really shouldn’t cost that much, but for some reason it does!
