March 31, 2013 in Travel Checklist
Here’s the scene;
You’re stuck in the nearest accessible airport in the boring dreary country that although provides financial stability (supposedly) for you and your family , but does not cater for the adrenaline fix that you can only find on a the freshly groomed pistes of the worlds finest resorts. So understandably your excited by the prospect of not only your boss not being able to reach you on your blackberry on the flight but what also awaits you after your transfer to the resort.
But you’re there, at what seems like the most industrial hurdle between you and your trip away, the check in desk. The gate keeper, the overly cheery check in lady (for 7.30 am) is secret smiling on the inside as you rummage around your newly purchased Northface back pack complete with empty platypus and all. You’ve forgotten the 4 year olds passport. You’re partner is horrified you didn’t check when they asked the last 5 times before closing the door almost as an ultimatum (as the eyes rolled) . Of which they are now burning into the back of your head. Your better half can picture the money poured away… wasted, it could’ve gone on treating the in laws or paying for a pampered a weekend for you two, but instead its just being buried in the mountains of embarrassment that you could’ve been carving up.
So after recent experiences not too dissimilar from the above… what could I’ve done to prevent this… find the Checklist, one that I will be taking with me from now on (or else).
