11 hours of flights down, 1.5 to go! 🚀
Its been a long day of travel to Cusco, Peru. I left my apartment last night at 7pm, flew to Mexico City, hopped a connecting flight to Lima, and I’m still going - currently sitting on a plane in Lima, Peru waiting to take off for my final destination.
Not only is this a lot of travel but it’s A LOT of sitting, which has my body feeling all kinds of cramped. I’ve been taking advantage of every opportunity to stretch: in my seat, in the airplane aisle, while waiting at the baggage claim... Yes, I’ve been getting some funny looks. But who cares what they think? I’m doing what I need to do to feel my best!
Not only is stretching relieving my physical tension, but getting in some movement is great for both my circulation, my stress levels, and energy levels (which, after 4 hours of crappy plane sleep, could use all the help they can get).
Here are some other travel observations from the past 24 hours:
👉🏻 I didn’t know windowless window seats existed until I got one on my flight to Lima 😑
👉🏻 AeroMexico offers gluten-free meals!
👉🏻 I’m already getting more comfortable practicing my Spanish... and people have been nice listening to me butcher it 🙈
👉🏻 Hiking poles will pass US airport security, but not Mexican airport security (in a carry on bag) 🤔
👉🏻 Spanish speakers will be confusing my name for “Helen” this whole trip 😂
All in all its been a fairly smooth journey so far! I still have my hiking poles and my sanity! Unfortunately I have been experiencing sharp pains in my upper abdomen (stress?) which has put a damper on the 2nd half of these flights. But I’m definitely looking forward to a good meal and a full night’s sleep when I get to Cusco 👊🏻
