The good part about being stuck in an airport when your flight is delayed is that you can catch up on the latest videos of people doing dumb stuff on YouTube. The bad part is that you are stuck in an airport. Right now the bad part is weighing in a bit heavier as I think we (my friend Daniel and I) have exhausted our interest in YouTube. But donâ€™t worry, weâ€™ve found some real gems during our 2 hour delay, including a video of probably the funniest/saddest hurdle track and field races ever.
Delays and bumps in the road are bound to happen while you are traveling, but that doesnâ€™t make them suck any less. On my last trip we were faced with a possible flight cancellation, multiple busses that were way over maximum capacity (like a 45 person bus with 80 to 90 people!), rough boat rides that stopped part way through for hours for no apparent reasons, and, my favorite story of all, the 10-hour overnight bus ride from hell. Lets just put it this way, my friends who were on that bus ride still cringe when anyone brings it upâ€¦. Think no A/C plus sitting in the back of the bus by the bathroom with a bus full of people with absolutely NO SHAME.
So now, a few months later, here I am, setting off on a new adventure of 2+ months of missing busses, sharing seats with 4 people, and sweating profusely on (p)leather seats. Although I donâ€™t love this part of travel, it is well worth it to see and do all the things that I am about to be able to do, so I canâ€™t complain too much. It is kinda like a lottery winner complaining about how much taxes they have to payâ€¦. Really dude? Shut up!
Iâ€™m excited to see what is in store for me, and hopefully my next post will be from a beach with a beer in hand.
