“Want to go on a weekend adventure somewhere? Looking up last minute flights and deals,” I text my sister before school on Friday. A few seconds later my phone buzzes with an enthusiastic “YES” and off she goes with last-minute planning and researching!
Does the Airport Count?
Even with all of my many food allergies, when it comes to travel I love spontaneity! Some of my best trips are unplanned, which is why I was so enthusiastic when my sister decided to join in (since she usually likes to plan to every last second of a trip months ahead). Neither of us had left the confines of the Chicago airport before, so Chicago was a perfect weekend destination.
I was at school all day (and anyone who is a teacher knows that even during “lunch” there is not usually a second of down time), so my sister booked everything. She is an excellent planner; fastidious with finding the best deals with the most value, and is also allergy aware. My sister put a note about our nut allergies on our United flights and asked for a “pet free” room at the hotel. Yay, sissy!
How is Chicago with food allergies? See our adventures…
