If you know me, you know that I’m always early. If you give me a time to be somewhere, I will make it. This rings true in all aspects of my life, whether it comes to meeting for lunch, getting to an appointment, or just making sure I get to the post office on time, I will be early.
This couldn’t be more true than when I travel. I am always hours early for my flights. My family teases me relentlessly for being 3 hours early for a domestic flight. For me, being early means no stress. No stress if there are long check-in lines, no stress if security is backed up, and no stress to get a few snacks and head to the washroom before my flight.
Everyone always asks me why I get to the airport so early. Yes, having no stress is great but there is something about airports that I love. Of course I hate the mad rush that some people are in but knowing that I get to go somewhere is always a treat for me. I fly a lot – for personal trips and work, no matter my destination I’m excited… and early.
Do you get the same feeling of excitement when you travel or do you dread the airport?
