When I left Charlotte, it was raining. When I touched down in Denver, it was sunny but crisp.
And when I landed in Spokane, it was SNOWY.
Thank goodness I actually checked the weather and packed a jacket (how many of these trips have I gone on and NOT packed a jacket?!).
My journey was relatively uneventful. The best part was, without a doubt, this SkyMall description. Haha.
SkyMall has really stepped up their product descriptions, by the way. I chuckled at least once every two pages.
The other highlight of the journey was finding Dr. Pepper-flavored jelly beans in a candy shop in the Denver airport. Hello. You know I was all over that. I ate a real lunch, too.
Some sort of brown rice and tofu veggie bowl. It was good, especially as far as airport food goes.
And then, several hours later, I touched down in the glorious state of Washington and got my rental car. Whooo hoo economy car!
My #1 healthy travel tip is, without a doubt, avoid the Dr. Pepper-flavored jelly beans. My #2 healthy travel tip is to find a grocery store near your hotel and stock up on food when you land. I usually search for â€˜Whole Foodsâ€™ on my iPhone, and even if there isnâ€™t a Whole Foods, the map will pull up similar grocery stores, which is how I found this gem.
I snagged a lentil curry dish and a bean and olive antipasta from the cold bar.
In other news, I am staying at an insanely creepy hotel. I really want to take a nap but am afraid of bed bugs. Itâ€™s that bad. Yikes.
