Gypsy at heart but a homebody in my soul...
Regardless of my life long fear of flying, I moved 6,000 miles from my English roots a forever ago, and strategically placed my stores across the county, causing me to be a reluctant member of the "jet set" club.
In truth, I am a fearful flyer. I have a specific routine and requirements of travel. Not so much diva, but hi-maintenance. I rarely fly at night and never take off in a storm. I must have a window seat. I usually interview the pilot before we take off to ask about the conditions of flying for the route ahead. I have been known to abandon a flight if I don't get good feelings from the pilot. I'm quite exhausting to travel with, although I say very little as I am super busy listening to the engines and looking out the window for oncoming planes.
I only book a hotel where the room can be accessed by stairs, as I am completely afraid of elevators too. Because of the cumbersomeness of my travel, I keep my travel baggage to the minimum, so I can change plans as needed depending on my fears. I pack lightly so that I can keep my bags on the plane, in case a quick getaway if needed. For me, our RASCCouture travel bag is the perfect solution. Big enough to pack a lot, but not too big or heavy to lift into the luggage hold… and it’s so pretty too. Every season I design a new one, I have quite the collection and I appreciate the distraction of beauty, while I journey the world, in trepidation.
