Fancy Coffee Friday: I’ve been in the same clothes for the last 30 hours

That’s the thing about international travel – there really isn’t much opportunity for a wardrobe change. Thirty hours in the same clothes? SURE! And, add to that the fact that we’re now six hours ahead of our usual time – we’re doing our best on little sleep.

However, I’ve discovered some things:

My newly purchased pair of Bogs chukka boots? Even after wearing for 30 plus hours – they are incredibly comfortable. I just took them off – my feet feel great. I’m really happy with that purchase.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport actually does have gluten-free options. We picked Ecco and the food was AWESOME! So were the cocktails.

Virgin Atlantic gives you a lot of swag when you fly with them. Too much swag. However, I did watch the movie “Inside Out” before I attempted to sleep. I didn’t really sleep.

Roads in England are similar to roads in Croatia: tend towards being narrow, no shoulder, and rock fences on both sides. Oh, but you drive on the left-hand side of the road.

Also, eating gluten-free seems that it will be easier than I initially thought. I got to have actual battered fried fish ‘n chips for lunch today at The Hydro Cafe. The owner is a Celiac and has a lot of gluten-free options. He also gave us a small local tourist map – one we hadn’t Instagramseen and which would be useful AND told us about some more places with gluten free options. Bonus! I think we’ll get back to Hydro, however, as he spoke much about the carrot cake they offered, saying it was his favorite. He also mentioned curry. I like curry.

And that’s it folks! If you’re on Instagram (or not) – I post photos of my trip (though I’m rarely in them).

Right now, I have a PB Chunk Cookie I hauled all the way over to England with me from Bloom. It’s currently calling my name.

    I used to always pack a change of clothes into my carry-on, so that I never had to wear the same clothes for more than 24 hours.

    Since that time, I’ve started to appreciate the space in my carry-on that can be used for anything BUT spare clothes. Also? I’ve stopped thinking that everyone around me would “just know” that I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 30+ hours. Also? I’ve started caring a whole lot less about what others around me, in general, might be thinking of me.

    So extra books for the win!

    • I have a nook, which is great for travel, but mostly I just attempted to sleep on the way there and watched movies on the way back. I figured that if my luggage was lost and I didn’t have a change of clothes, I’d just have to go shopping. 😛

  2. Thanks for linking to my site! I’m glad you had a good experience in ATL and yes, eating gluten free is definitely getting much easier than it used to be. I hope you get some good sleep and enjoy your trip!! ❤
