After work tonight, I will be flying to Tucson to visit my sister Abby & her husband, Ryan.
* Insert Squeal *
This trip is coming at the perfect time; apparently Mother Nature is uber confused and doesn't realize it's spring! It's been overcast, rainy, and frigid here lately. Case in point: when I drove home on Friday night, it was sort of snowing. Seriously.
So tonight I will hop on a plane and arrive in the land of sun, palm trees, cacti, and fantastic weather! I've never been to visit Abby & Ryan so am looking forward to seeing their house! Hopefully we can fit in a hike tomorrow before my parents arrive (and some pool time in the a.m. while Abby is at class).
As usual, I will be flying solo. And you know what - I totally don't mind. I have lost count of the number of times I have traveled; it's got to be at least 40 times? Probably more? Out of all of those times, I have had a flying companion 6 times. I actually kind of like flying alone, to be quite honest. I just throw on the headphones, open a book, and give off my "we aren't going to exchange life stories" vibe. Yes, I am the standoffish traveler. I did once have a seat mate tell me that I was disarming - so I guess my anti-social nature isn't perceived as being rude by everyone I encounter!
Perhaps I would bend this rule if I actually got seated next to a handsome stranger. That has never happened in all my years of flying... but a girl can dream. After all, a college sorority sister met her husband on an airplane! So it's not just an urban legend - it can happen!
Do you tend to travel alone or with company? Are you a chatty traveler or are you anti-social like I am? Have you ever been seated next to an attractive seatmate?
