When it’s right, it’s right. But, boy when it’s wrong it’s way wrong. Have you ever had a travel fail?
I had a terrible sinus infection kick in on my last day in Spain once. I was unable to take any medication unfortunately and didn’t really have any access to any anyway. By the time I got on the airplane to fly home I was in a terrible amount of pain. It was the most miserable flight I have ever been on. Through a wonderful bout of fate our connecting flight in Washington DC was cancelled and we were forced to spend the night in DC! This allowed me to get out of the airplane and sleep! I had never been so happy to have a flight cancelled before.
In other travel fail related news, my husband fell and broke both of his ankles in a climbing accident a few years back while camping together on the coast. One helicopter ride to an ambulance later we were at the hospital picking up a wheelchair and two casts. The dog and I drove him home laying in the back seat of our jeep where we were promptly forced to take the doors off the hinges of most of the rooms in our house. Ankle surgery followed and I am happy to report he is doing fine and has no ill effects. And, yes, we are still happily married after all of that!
Have you had any epic travel fails you care to share? They are always so much more fun to share and laugh about later…
