Thanksgivng is the busiest travel time of the year.
I used to travel a lot — not as much as some, but way more than most. For almost three years, the longest time I spent with my pillow was 21 days and that only happened once. Several times I was away over 40 days. I got good at traveling.
What I learned was to go into adventure mode. I bet you remember adventure mode from childhood. It’s that way of looking at the world as if everything is an adventure — a game, something fun and exciting.
When a plane was delayed, adventure mode would kick in. I would start looking for where the story would begin. Everyone knows that no matter how awful a traveling delay can get, if you get a good story, it’s not a total and complete wipe out.
My best story is when I was stuck in an airport for four days.
If you travel over the holidays, be safe, travel well, and come back to us. If you run into delays, remember adventure mode . . . and bring back a story to tell us.
