Like in the super skeevy border town where I lost my friend for about 40 minutes and panicked on the inside… stuck in the pouring rain, huddled under an umbrella, keenly guarding about 18000 ridiculous lbs. of luggage, watching all the total sketchiness surround me. I’m unable to go anywhere - being trapped in no man’s land between Costa Rica and Panama without the proper entry paperwork! I think I used the time wisely though… thinking up gentle ways to break the news to her husband that she’d been abducted in to the middle age white lady sex trade (that’s a thing, right?). Anyway, all’s well that ends well. She’s making good coin. Just kidding.
Or worse yet, that day when there was not a single drop of drinkable wine to be found in an entire Central American city (damn you Cali, Colombia!). True story. That day went down as one of the grumpiest on record for everyone in my vicinity. Seriously.
These travel tweets show that not everyone is loving every minute of it. But…. we never let that stop us from hitting the road again at the very next opportunity. I’m a firm believer that a bad day of travel is still way more fun than any good day in a cubicle.
