My escape to the sun

Glasgow Airport has for a really long time lacked in healthy food options since EAT closed down a while ago but I was happily surprised that James Martin Kitchen had opened up. Had a look but didn’t get anything. Looked a bit like Pret a Manger.

I rarely go to Starbucks but they do have a nice green tea so I had one whilst waiting for my plane with some snacks.

More snacks because what is travelling without snacks?

My dinner in Schipol, not great but it was food at least. 

Hi lovelies! Sorry for not writing sooner, it’s been a busy day. On Friday evening I was sitting at home in Glasgow with no real plans at all of what I was going to do for the next couple of days. Jamie’s going away on a whisky trip for about a week and without him around, being unemployed and not having that much to do it felt quite tough being at home.

I was messaging with my step mum Anki, her and my youngest sister Sarah were heading to our family’s flat down in Nice and she just said, why not come with us? I hesitated for a while although I really wanted to go (money and all) and after thinking about it for a little while I thought, why not? I know me being unemployed is only temporary and I might as well make the most of this free time and spend time with my family who I don’t get to see that much.

It was also very tempting to feel some warmth from the sun to be honest. So there I was 11 in the evening on Friday night booking flights to leave in the afternoon the next day. I’ve never felt so spontaneous 😉 I love planing everything so it felt good to do something last minute for once and just go for it.

The next day I cleaned the flat, packed my bags and eventually headed for the airport. Unfortunately the flight was delayed a bit but I didn’t mind that much, as long as I wouldn’t miss my connecting plane in Amsterdam. I got plenty of time to get to my gate in the end so it was fine. I grabbed a veggie salad in Amsterdam on the way with some falafel in it, it wasn’t very good and felt very artificial somehow but it was the best I could find on my way to my gate. I’m usually better with bringing food with me but sometimes life gets in the way.

I really don’t like flying because I usually get the worst stomach pains. I struggle with bloating and cramps quite often (really need to get to the bottom of it) and when I fly, if I get stomach pains, it feels ten times worse. I think in this case, I didn’t get a chance to plan my meals because it was so last minute and I didn’t eat enough. By the time I arrived in the flat the pain was so bad I could barely walk properly so whilst I was excited to see Anki (Sarah was asleep and had no idea I was there), I was in agony. Eventually I got something to eat and the pain slowly went away. Does anyone else struggle with this? It’s horrible!

Anyway, this morning when I got up, Sarah was on the sofa on her iPad and I came up behind her and said good morning. She was in shock and was incredibly confused but the smile on her face was amazing. Love that girl so much!

We had a great day today but I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow because I’m exhausted and would love to get an early night. Good night and sleep tight<3

With my blog I hope to spread this joy and inspire you to be your best. Who am I? I’m Madeleine (surprise). I’m a Swede who lives in the vibrant city of Glasgow in Scotland. I moved here for my university studies and in summer 2016 I graduated with a degree in Business and Management at University of Glasgow. My keyword has always been balance. I love eating healthy food but I also love to indulge once in a while. You need to enjoy life at the end of the day and limiting yourself is not the way to go. With this I would like to say welcome to Madeleine Moves. Love, Madeleine
