One of my favorite places to travel to is Florida. No wonder – I lived there for a long time so it does have a special place in my heart. This trip was a great one, I packed so many things into it, new flying and travel tips, coaching lessons, me time at the Spa, Health appointments and visits with friends. I had an absolute blast.
I left with the Red Eye flight from LAX last Friday. I did not want to waste a perfectly fine day for flying so I opted for catching some sleep on a plane. Over all those years of traveling for dancing so much I got this down to a science and you can find my “Redeye Flight Survival Tips” in this previous post here.
But this time I had to go directly from the airport to the dance studio, I have been invited to coach and the schedule turned out in a way that I could not stop by to where I was staying to shower and change before heading to teach. I definitely stressed over this for a little bit – showering in the morning is an absolute must be for me and I absolutely cannot go without it.
So here is how I managed. I had a 2 hour layover in Atlanta and flew with Delta. I found out that they have showers at terminal E and F in the Delta Sky Club lounges. I just got a day pass to get in – they had a spa area for travelers. You can check in, you get everything you need, Towels, hairdryer, toiletries and your own bathroom – absolutely spotless and spacious. I got ready for the day, had breakfast at their buffet with eggs, toast and Starbuck’s coffee and then made my way back to my terminal to fly to Florida and go to the studio. Thank you Delta, you were lifesavers in this crazy travel world.
After my coaching lessons I felt I needed some me time to restore, so I went to one of my favorite places, Eau Spa at the Eau Palm Beach Resort. It was the perfect me time and I enjoyed every minute of calm and beautiful bliss.
The rest of my time was packed with visiting friends, having some business meetings and some health checkups. I had a little scare with a mammogram a while back here in LA and I felt more comfortable to follow up at a fabulous facility in Jupiter, Florida, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center. This center has been founded and designed by Suzanne Niedland in memory of her mom, who died of Breast cancer, and is one of the most advanced breast diagnostic facilities in the world. And besides that the people who work there really care and make you feel comfortable, it is a great place for women. And I’m really happy to hear that I am OK and everything is fine with my health.
I had a fantastic time and can’t wait to be back next time,
thank you so much for stopping by
