I love to travel more than anything. I like to think that I got this passion from my parents, who both worked as flight attendants for fifteen years. Actually, my mom was a flight attendant and then my dad became a flight attendant as a way to meet girls. And then he met my mom. And then they traveled the world together. And then they had me and all the fun was over.
For the first couple years after I was born, my mom still worked part-time and my dad stayed home with me. One afternoon he took me to go meet my mom after her flight got in from Rome. He dressed me up in my favorite party dress, complete with a bibbed lace collar and white tights, and there I stood, with my face pressed up against the glass watching the airplanes come in and waiting for my mother.
When my mom’s plane finally landed and she walked off the runway and towards us, she noticed there was one small thing wrong with this picture.
My dad had put my dress on backwards. She resigned from the airlines the next day.
Here are some of my very favorite traveling posts from over the years. Read and enjoy!
