Like, real lurrrve, y'all.
My answer to the question of going anywhere, especially somewhere new?
I've never been one of those people who viewed the destination as the goal. Ever since my days of Rugrats in Paris (remember the airplane scene? Too fun) I've always had almost as much fun on the journey.
But I can't help but notice that not everyone feels that way. There are the travelers who take half a year to get through TSA, the travelers whose screaming toddlers test the limits of their vocal chords each and every time, the travelers whose adorable heels stop feeling so cute by the second stopover, and the travelers who are B.O.R.E.D. for hours on end.
But with my savvy traveler tips, everyone can have as awesome a time as me!
You can't honestly expect Delta to cater to your gluten free-dairy free-paleo-reduced sugar-whole foods-pescatarian-green and purple foods only diet. If your diet is weird, restrictive, from a different time era, or fraught with dislikes and intolerances, pack your own frickin' food.
Ideally, you can make do and enjoy what else is out there while your traveling. But if you refuse to eat what most others do, then don't be disappointed when the stewardess won't whip up a batch of protein pancakes for you and the hotel kitchen won't let you come down to prepare your oatmeal your way. They have to cater to the masses and have to focus on food safety and pleasing the majority.
How they feel about your specific diet?
