I have a friend who always liked to take her children traveling, because she felt that they made developmental strides after the experience. I agree with this philosophy, but I think it not just applies to children, but to everyone.
My transportation traveling bump was overcome, and I arrived in the San Juan islands, to Orcas island. I was ready to enjoy my weekend and the wedding festivities. I thought it was smooth sailing from there, boy was I wrong.
I had a fantastic time at the pre wedding BBQ, then headed to my sister’s hotel, the lovely Ship Inn. We were waiting for the arrival of my brother-in-law Bob, who had taken our luggage.
Sometimes when one is an experienced travel, they neglect preparation and research when going to a new destination. They think that they have travel the world, they can handle a weekend getaway, no problem. Well sometimes that arrogance can comeback to bite them in the backside.
I was invited to a friend’s wedding this weekend in the San Juan islands. I have never been there before, but it a popular destination, so I thought, how hard could it be to get there. I have been busy, so I really didn’t take the time to research how to get up here. Also, I had my room arranged, so I did not have to do that much planning, or that’s what I thought. Ha.
