When travelling doesn't go as planned... Or when your bridesmaid locks your suitcase and passport in her trunk!

When travelling doesn't go as planned... Or when your bridesmaid locks your suitcase and passport in her trunk!

Last Saturday was beautiful. It was sunny, fresh, and a typical autumn day. It was also my sister's wedding day! Another exciting event for her was her honeymoon. It was her first trip and first plane. Every trip comes with its mishaps...

The bride and groom!

The bride and groom!

She enjoyed plenty of amazing roadtrip, but this trip was special: airport, plane, passport stamp, Cuba, white sand, ocean, and a new husband. Well, it wouldn't be a wedding without some mishaps and adventure! Her bridesmaid lock her car keys, their suitcases, tickets, carry-ons, and passports in her trunk!

For a good two hours during the reception there was a little pandemonium while some friends and guests were trying to get he trunk open. A taxi driver came and unlocked the car. Victory! No, not so soon. The trunk could not be open from inside the car without the key contact. Lower the backseats? Nop... The clamps are in the trunk! Call a locksmith? Sure! It's Saturday at midnight and we are in the sticks. The cellphone reception is spotty. While one person was trying to find a company that could come and do it, others were fetching tools to unmount the seat. As we found a locksmith who could do it, the seat was undone and the trunk was opening. The bride and her groom could go off on their honeymoon.

The point of this story is to illustrate that travel requires flexibility and things don't always go according to plan. You'll go through adventures, issues, and weird situations. You'll refine your patience and you will find friends ready to help you.
