I don't know about you, but when it comes to travel, I have pretty bad luck. I can never seem to plan far enough ahead when 1. the prices are not astronomical or 2. I don't get stuck in the middle seat. For me, being fortunate enough to travel meant sacrificing something — whether that be air, personal space, my wallet, or a combination — but it's a part of my life that I simply grew to accept.
