I’m a little behind with BootsnAll Indie 30, 30 Days of Indie Travel Project. So let’s get a move on.
Prompt #4: Mistakes. Discussing your worst travel mistake.
I’ve had to mull this over for a couple of days. The words travel and mistake, together in the same sentence, hurt my soul. Travel should be joyous, full of adventure, fun. How could there be a mistake? There are things that come to mind, like getting on the wrong train or plane because you weren’t paying attention. Showing up at the wrong hotel, or making reservations for the wrong hotel (we’ve actually done that one, Harrah’s Reno when we thought it was for Harrah’s Lake Tahoe).
I think that my biggest mistake has always been to pack too many clothes, even when I say I’m not going to do that ever again. I’m always sweating it at the airport thinking my suitcase will be over the weight limit. Maybe that’s why I prefer to travel by car.
I get to test my resolve once again in a few weeks. We leave for Kauai the Saturday after Thanksgiving. In a few weeks it’ll be me and the suitcase in the bedroom, mano a mano.
I’ll keep you posted.
