Listen, there are so many reasons I prefer to board early as an accommodation for my disability. A big one? Anxiety. Being rushed (or the feeling of being rushed or judged or pushed) can make tasks like boarding a plane near impossible for me.
Anyone else struggle with that kind of anxiety?
For the handful of folks who guessed Richmond, Virginia, you have eagle eyes. How did you know that from an 8-second video at the airport?
I'll post more about this trip soon, so keep an eye on IG and FB.
In the interim, tell me. Have you ever been to Richmond? If yes, what are your must-see things.
If you haven't been, wanna come?
For those who celebrate, how were the recent holidays? We go from Thanksgiving to my daughter's birthday the following Saturday, so this is always a hectic and wonderful time of year.
The real question, tho: anyone actually ready for December?
On Thanksgiving, I absolutely love the food. But I especially love the fellowship. I know I'm thankful to have loved ones to share this meal with.
I'm thankful for so much. My family, my ability to pay my bills, my ability to help others. I'm thankful for being able to experience the world with my little family. I'm thankful that my health is on my mend. And I'm thankful for the community here.
What are you thankful for?
Listen, the internet wants me to post some sort of witty commentary or really inspirational and touching personal narrative... but honestly, I'm exhausted. Anyone else exhausted?
So I'm channeling my time at Disneyland when I walk 20 miles a day in platform boots and somehow have enough energy to do it all over again the next day.
Here's to my friends and community members who are also struggling. I see you. I'm with you. 💚
Unpopular Travel Opinion: There is no such this as overpacking.
Listen, just pack what you want. Pack what you need. As long as you have a way to transport your luggage, and you're good with traveling with it, bring it all!
I love being prepared. And I also love photo shoots. And really big shoes. I tend to bring more luggage than most people. Folks call it overpacking. Me? It's just packing, lol.
So real talk: do you think it's possible to overpack?

I am so excited to unbox the brand new Leatherman Arc. You might be surprised to see me, Geek Girl Travel, unboxing a multi-tool like this, but my type A perfectionist self loves having such an efficient tool available. Bonus points that it's made in the USA! This isn't my first Leatherman, but it is now my very favorite.
We travel with a Leatherman, always in checked luggage, because you never know when you're going to need a tool and be left searching. This Leatherman has everything from a file to really cute scissors to a saw. It has a saw! Honestly, it's so useful. If you love adventure travel, think of adding one to your kit.
Do you own a multi-tool? Or travel with some tools? Comment with your must-pack travel survival kit items.

Saying goodbye to this vintage spooky nail set that was inspired by ideas you guys gave me for nail sets I need to do! These nails are a month old. Isn't that impressive? They still look so good!
How about we try that again. My November set is already chosen, but want to help me decide on December?
Also, comment your best guesses on what you think I replaced this set with. Any ideas on my next theme? Bonus points for the best and worst answers, lolol.

Tips and tricks are my favorite things to share about travel and boy do I have a lot of them. I think every traveler starts to curate their own personal style of travel. I’m excited to share more with you about mine.
Are you the kind of person who is always a bit cautious when it comes to the unknown? Me too. Read through my tips & tricks and maybe they’ll help you see your next adventures in a new light.
Beach travel is definitely a big part of our world travel. Ironic for someone as photosensitive as I am, but the sound of the water and the feeling of sand between my toes means I just prepare myself a bit more for the excursion.
Fashion matters a lot to me. My fashion is a big part of how I express myself. And while I don’t have the luxury of bringing my entire wardrobe with me when I travel, I’ve figured out some tips to help express my fashion everywhere I go.
We’ve all been on vacation, camera in hand, chasing that perfect shot. While that photo is often such an important thing to me, it should never be more important than being respectful, courteous and eco-friendly.
