Well, I think that sums it up pretty well. That was certainly an adventure for me. Can you believe out of all that travel there was only 1 cancelled flight? I spent months and months planning, and I am really impressed that all in all everything went according to plan. I am now back to my usual routine, but if all goes as planned, Ryan and I have a little trip planned in the near future. More on that too come.
Thanks again, and I hope I didn't bore you too much with all my travel posts. Sooner or later I will get back to more nutrition focused posts, but there are plenty of excellent dietitians out there writing on the topic, so as long as I have something different to offer, I think I will write about that.
