Do’s and Don’ts of Traveling to Florida

On traveling to Florida and spending our first day here:

Do make overnight oats when you have to leave the house at 5 AM.

Don’t go to sleep at 12:30 the night before.

I was still somehow awake enough to drive 3+ hours to the AutoTrain station in Virginia.

Do grab lunch at the Eden Vietnamese Center before boarding the train.

We went to a restaurant called Rice Paper!

Do endure the on-and-off service of the train to watch the World Cup final.

So sad Argentina lost.

Don’t be picky with your food on the AutoTrain.

It’s still a thousand times better than airplane food.

Do take mirror selfies in the bathroom “lounge.”

Because it’s called a bathroom “lounge”….

Do (or maybe don’t) have one of the overly oily and sweet corn muffins for breakfast.

So bad, but so very good.

Don’t wear a heavy duty cotton t-shirt when going to Florida in the summer.

I felt like I was in a thermos when I arrived.

Do go to Tijuana Flats if you’re in the South.

If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will.

Don’t forget to pack enough underwear. Three pairs for three weeks isn’t enough.

Yep, that would be me.

Do make a trip to Publix.

You know how I feel about supermarkets.

Don’t waste a tissue to pick up dead bugs when you can use a receipt.

EW. Thanks, Daliza for taking care of that little bugger.

Do practice yoga outside with your best friend.

Don’t practice yoga outside while there’s a thunderstorm and there are birds checkin’ you out.

We did that anyway.

Do take pictures of the sky when it’s YELLOW.

Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes on our travels! We’ve had a blast so far as you might be able to tell 🙂 Can’t wait to share the rest of our adventures with you!

Hope you all have a beautiful day!

So tell me:

What do you eat for breakfast on the go?

Do you like supermarkets as much as I do?

When was the last time you saw a beautiful sunset?
