With the holidays being just around the corner traveling is at an all-time high which means stress and more stress, but for someone always on the go it is just like any other month. If you can relate to any of these signs it is a sure indicator that you travel A LOT.
1. You have perfected your airport routine.
At this point, with all the traveling, you have it down to a science. You know just how in advance you need to leave to get to the airport, where to park, where your terminal is, etc. This is why you are never one of those frantic and stressed travelers.
2. You are never fully unpacked.
No matter how experienced a traveler you are, everyone dreads unpacking from a trip. Some people take days or even weeks, but you can really tell you travel too much when you are already packing for your next trip before you can even unpack from your last.
3. You buy clothes clothes specifically for the plane/airport.
Have you ever been shopping and seen a pair of sweats and thought, “This would be perfect for travel!” If yes, then you are definitely a frequent flyer, which also means you know that comfort is key because unless you’re Kim Kardashian or Beyonce, there is no need to go all out for the airport.
4. You can make it through an entire travel day without texting your parents for help.
When you first start out traveling alone, it can be the most stressful thing on the planet. Once you are a pro, things like booking flights and checking in become a breeze so the stress and frantic texts and calls to mom and dad can finally come to an end.
5. You have your airport practically memorized.
You have been to practically every terminal and know just what they all have to offer. You don’t even have to look at a map to find the closest Starbucks or where the best waiting areas are located.
6. You never make the mistake of forgetting headphones.
Realizing you forgot your headphones on the plane is almost as bad as forgetting them at the gym. Whether you are listening to music or podcasts headphones are an absolute must for any plane ride. If you’re really a pro, you have a pair for your iPhone and another pair with an AUX plug to watch movies inflight.
7. You know the travel size amounts by heart.
You are way past the point of googling what you can and can’t bring on the plane because you already have the restrictions and size limits memorized. There is no bigger rookie mistake then to throw out your oversized items at the security check.
8. You ALWAYS TSA PreCheck.
Easily the worst part about traveling is going through security. Somebody who is constantly on the go knows to never waste time standing in line and always takes the easy way out with PreCheck.
9. You always pack snacks.
Nothing is better than eating your favorite snacks on the plane as opposed to the basic and generic snacks they sell at the airport, not to mention they can be expensive. Buying snacks at the airport is okay every now and then, but someone who travels a lot knows to always bring their own from home.
10. You have established your airline preferences.
You have had your fair share of travel horror stories to know which airlines to stay away from. Determining your favorite airline can be the deciding factor between a travel day from hell or smooth sailing.
