As you can obviously tell, I survived my trip to California. I packed enough airplane “activities” to keep me occupied on the long journey. If someone looked in my carry-on bag they would have thought I was an activity hoarder. What was in my carry-on you might ask? Here’s the run down:
- Adult coloring book (I did not color at all)
- HGTV magazine (which I did NOT read)
- MacBook (I partially worked on my self-assessment for work)
- The Good Girl (I read a little bit)
- iPad (I honestly don’t know why I brought it)
- Work tablet (another piece of technology I should have left behind)
I realize I should have been more sensible when packing my “activity” bag, but I wasn’t sure how high my anxiety level would be and I needed all the distractions I could get. The flight form RDU to CLT wasn’t bad at all… a beautiful 30 minutes-ish traveling. It was the CLT to SFO flight that I was prepping for. I basically followed my friend’s suggestion by not having ANY caffeine prior to flying- what a great tip!
While heading to my connecting flight I totes I got to lay my eyes on the Carolina Panther’s plane. No, Cam Newton was no where to be seen. They were probably still mourning their Super Bow 50 loss (I mean, I’m still bummed about it).
On the 5+ hour trip to San Francisco I was lucky enough to sit right next to the cabin bathroom. That’s right, I had VIP seats to see who all were repeat offenders using the bathroom!
It wasn’t too bad, I actually had enough room and didn’t feel claustrophobic- otherwise I would have needed a horse tranquilizer.
Now since my first day in California had consisted of being up for almost 24 hours, I figured I’d break up my blog post into a series of posts so I don’t miss any of the important stuff. We crammed A LOT into our first day in San Francisco. My journey to The Golden State was just part of it.
