Where in the world is Caitlin Sandiego?
Why, today Iâ€™m headed to Seattle for an Operation Beautiful presentation at St. Martinâ€™s University. And â€“ call me crazy, because I most definitely am â€“ I am taking the red eye back to the East Coast later tonight and presenting at Old Dominion in Norfolk, Virginia tomorrow evening. CRAZY! Trust me, Iâ€™m wishing my fairy godmother would swoop down from the sky and upgrade me to first class on that red eye back home. A girl can dream, right?
I had a layover in Atlanta, so my first flight was very early. I had a Larabar and an Apple Crusher. I know that, as an adult, I look extremely strange sucking down an Apple Crusher, but thereâ€™s no spoon required, so itâ€™s the perfect way to eat applesauce on the go.
Channeling my inner 3 year old and whatnot.
Iâ€™m really trying to save money on eating out while traveling â€“ it adds up very fast. Plus, while most major airports offer a great variety of veggie options, vegetarian and gluten-free options are still very few and far between. So â€“ to save money and stay on track, Iâ€™ve got to be a little creative and bring my own food on my travels.
I packed some Panda Puffs and hit up the Starbucks in the Atlanta airport for some soy milk. The barista was very confused when I placed my order for a small soy milk in a large cup. But it worked!
Iâ€™ve got a five hour flight. Hopefully, I will not fall asleep with my mouth open again. Dragon breath on your neighbor is so not cool.
See you in Seattle!
