Here’s My Quirky Travel Obsession… You Know You Have One Too


Not many people know this. In fact, I feel almost funny admitting it on my blog. There’s something I do every single time I travel. No matter the time. No matter the length of flight. It’s almost like those baseball players that wear double socks right before a game. A slight… quirk if you will.

Whenever I travel… I have to eat… a chicken salad sandwich.

Is that INSANE? (a little bit)

I could take a 4AM flight and I will still opt for this as my breakfast. I don’t know when it started and I don’t know WHY it started – but it’s part of my life. I never have a problem leaving from JFK because these puppies are everywhere. But if I’m traveling from out of country BACK to JFK – I don’t always get what I want… which makes me very nervous.

Come on. Fess up – do you do anything silly like this? I can’t be the only one.

  1. OMG I love you Vera, you always make me laugh with your posts!!!! 😀

    I don’t have anything that specific when I travel although I do have to have multiple sources of reading options. I always buy several mags, have my Kindle, iPad, whatever. God forbid I get held up or stuck somewhere and don’t have something to read, now THAT freaks the heck out of me LOL

    You are too funny! A Mophie iPhone charger back-up is the quirkiest travel obsession I guess. Oh, and that I have to ‘check-in’ with FourSquare where ever I go now. #addicted

    I don’t think I have any quirky travel obsessions. But wherever I go, I have to buy a local cigarette brand (I know nasty habit)

    This made me giggle. For me, it’s a Starbucks hot chocolate. NO clue why. I don’t really ever get them at home, so no clue what the thing is with the airport and hot chocolate. hahaha. And I’m totally superstitious so now I’m like pacing if I can’t find a Starbucks. Like I HAVE to have it. Maybe we can get a group discount on therapy. ROFL!

    Whenever a family member or friend flies I have to tell them to be safe and careful. A must or extreme anxiety!!
