I used to travel for work quite a lot.
Now it’s intermittent.
When it was all the time I had a method and a set of rotating suitcases.
Certain things–shoes and toiletries–stayed in the suitcases while I swapped out clothing.
Now I’m not traveling quite as much and I just ran into a major snag on a work trip.
I’m on my way to my final destination and I remembered one major thing I forgot.
Any shoes whatsoever.
I arrived at my destination and desperately looked around for any sort of shoe store. I even pulled up Google maps and started searching.
There was nothing within my destination and I had to meet with people immediately.
I show up to the meeting in my formal wear and flip flops.
It was a good ice breaker.
But definitely not my usual “travel style”. My problem was I broke from habit.
Have you ever broken from your usual travel habits? What negative effects did that have?
