It was a year ago today that I was cruising up the bruce highway from my Coolangatta apartment on a trip to Mexico. It was at that moment that I reached the airport and realised I had forgotten my suitcase...yes that happened. I literally was so concentrated on my food on the plane and my board bags in the car that I forgot the fricken suit case...obviously it was my third priority. I was literally a few 100meters from pulling up when a massive slap in the face realisation that I didn't put the dang suitcase in!
Seriously though, who does that? I had my boards and the thought crossed my mind that I could get away with only having my board for 3 weeks. I could just buy clothes, togs, borrow fins and necessities over there and be alright. Ahhhhhh nup, I was pretty fucked. I called a neighbour and they met me half way with my bag in tow! I had planned to be early so made it...kinda. They had closed the gate but they reopened it for me. Lucky I was with virgin...jetstar could have been another story. That was only the beginning of a pretty crappy 24hrs of travel. More unfortunate events included cancelled flights, hurricanes, a little bit of crying (i'm blaming it on the lack of sleep). Buying another ticket...extra 500 give or take, Mexican driver not showing up(who was also responsible for our room and keys), not being able to find our room, no water of power when we arrived and some language barriers that absolutely sucked. So this 24hrs will hopefully be a little smoother.
Any way Im on my way, boards packed, everything in tow, its blowing a gale, pooring with rain and may have some current delays. First up Mexico, then El Salavador, Nicaragua and the California coast line.
