Welcome to Williamsport!
It’s been a bit of a mission! 🙂
I had a very interesting flight – I sat next to a woman who is a registered dietician and works for a regional grocery store chain. I peeked at her laptop and saw she was prepping for a presentation on social media and food blogs! Total coincidence.
After we landed in Harrisburg, I went over to the rental car booth and got talked into upgrading to this sweet ride.
Then, I literally traveled over the mountains and through the woods to Williamsport. I lived in Pennsylvania for 5 years and kind of miss it. It’s so scenic. The two hour drive FLEW by.
While I drove, I ate lunch. I packed a PB sammie and a banana because I knew from experience that my healthy and vegetarian food options would be limited on rural highway.
I pulled up to my hotel and was extremely disappointed to realize I BOOKED THE WRONG NIGHT. Yes, I booked the room for Monday! Not only that, but apparently Williamsport is bumpin’ right now due to oil speculations, and every room in FOUR hotels was sold out!
The very awesome luxury suite – also a smoking room. Now I’m out $260 instead of $100; however, I had to just laugh. I literally laughed until I cried at the check-in desk. Worse things can happen, right? At least I found a room! What would I have done tonight otherwise?!
Squeezed in a quick gym sesh:
I did 31 minutes on the treadmill – about 2.5 miles. I walked/ran because I was practicing my presentation at the same time.
I’m going to go rummage up a snack and catch some ZZZ’s before I have to be on campus!
What’s the craziest thing that’s happened to you while traveling? When I was in Barcelona, Spain with my BFF Sarah, I began to projectile vomit on the airplane to Paris, and by the time we landed, I was fainting and losing consciousness. I got rushed to an emergency room in the airport, woke up to a French nurse jamming an IV in my arm, and we both missed our flight. We were 20 years old and FREAKING OUT. Our only hotel option was a $400 room in the Paris airport. It was DELUXE. Best part: I didn’t owe a dime in medical costs because France has socialized medicine! Wahoo! Thank you, France.
Oh my gosh that last bit sounds terrifying!! Oh my :s
The scenery where you are is GORGEOUS! I officially want to add that place to my hit list 😀
I’m yet to have any horrific travelling experiences…*touch wood* I’ve been fine so far, but I know my time will come 😛
Oh, and yes, far worse things do happen than ending up with the LUXURY suite!! I say make the most of it and enjoy it 😀 GEet room service, champers…whatever 😀
Have a good time!
