Sorry for the late post! I have been traveling all morning and struggling with my wi-fi connection at the airport.
One adjustment that will take some getting used to with my new job is the amount of travel that is required. Today I am headed on my first business trip to St. Louis, Missouri which is the start of what will become a regular routine. Since getting felt up while going through security is hassle enough, I am learning to pack light in order to avoid long lines at check-in and baggage claim while traveling. I’m currently using a 21 inch carry-on that’s lightweight and has plenty of pockets. Since I’ve never been an efficient packer (I’m always the one sitting on her bag to get the zipper to close), I thought I’d be a goner when it came to packing light. However, with some careful outfit planning and the purchase of some bag organizers and travel-size toiletries, I’m fully packed for my four-day trip (complete with a different pair of shoes for each day) with plenty of room to spare!
