I am on my way back from a conference in Denver, CO waiting to board my plane. Including this trip, this is my THIRD time traveling solo since attending PLA in 2018.
I have a bit of anxiety around travel and just prefer traveling with others in general. It’s reassuring and reduces my anxiety.When I was given the opportunity to go to PLA as the WAPL PLA Liaison in the spring of 2018, it was by myself to a city I’ve never been to (Philadelphia). I was dropped off at the airport by a family member and arrived at my destination just fine.
Later last summer, I attended another conference, the ADA Symposium, in Pittsburgh. I flew alone again. This time, it was a little less stressful because I had some recent experience going it alone. It’s hard to believe I went to Pennsylvania twice within a few months and I had never been there in my lifetime.
Today I am leaving Denver, CO to head back to Milwaukee. I’m traveling solo and what’s new this time is that I parked my car at the airport. This is a new adventure for me as I’ve always been dropped off even when traveling with others. I took a picture of where I parked so that I could rest assured that I would be able to find my car upon my return five days later. So if you see me wandering around the Milwaukee airport looking for my car, at least you know I landed OK but may need help finding my spot!
