One of my 2016 New Year’s resolutions was to travel more, and I’m happy to say that I certainly have. Traveling is one of the most eye-opening and amazing experiences a person can have, and I absolutely love it – but every single time I undergo the 12+ hour flights and insanely long passport control lines, I find myself wondering “Is it worth this insanity??”
Of course this sentiment doesn’t last long. It usually dissipates as soon as I leave the airport, but even if you’re just taking a one or two hour flight somewhere, the process of traveling is exhausting. It’s dehydrating, gives you jet lag, and unless you’re flying first class, it’s basically impossible to get comfortable in those frumpy seats.
To solve the “comfort” dilemma of traveling, I recently wore my softest scrubs pants in lieu of jeans or leggings (if I bend my legs for any extended period of time, they ALWAYS cut off my legs circulation). I didn’t go so far as to wear a matching scrubs top because I’m not a doctor, and I didn’t want people mistakenly asking me for medical advice or in case of a medical emergency, but a simple white tee shirt goes with everything.
I also didn’t have to worry about getting strange looks because these scrubs pants basically fit like a loose pair of comfy pants, rather than looking like the glorified pajamas you so often see in hospitals. Moral of the story? I highly recommend traveling in soft and comfortable scrubs. It will make your travel SO much easier!!
