[11/365] So I FINALLY made it to India! Those of you who followed my Stories this weekend, you know that it was noooot easy getting here, but here’s some #TravelWisdom2018 for you a day late - there is always, always a silver lining.
You won’t believe this story is real -> A snowstorm left me stranded on an airplane runway for 2 hours in Munich, which of course meant I missed my connecting flight in Frankfurt by SECONDS! Because of this though, they had to rebook my flight, and somehow, in spite of all the chaos and stress, I ended up benefiting from my missed flight 😂 Not only did I get rebooked on a way nicer flight with a better airline, I was put up in a free hotel too. So, by missing my flight, I ended up getting a proper night’s rest, a better flight AND (weirdest of all), I made a new, unexpected friend! Out of nowhere, the guy rebooking my flight told me he used to live in Vancouver, and we ended up bonding over restaurants and shops we both loved from home..... all while thousands of miles away in Frankfurt! (he subsequently put me in a nicer hotel hahah).
The universe is weird, but it works in magical ways. Things always work out in the end.... and now here I am in India, frolicking around palaces built for inventors of rockets (yeah seriously) and living on board one of the most decadent luxury trains in India for #IndiaBlogTrain w/ @incredibleindia. Get the full scoop on Stories.
Anyways, I wanna hear your best “serendipity/silver lining” stories. Drop them in the comments so I can read/gush over them in bed! I’m a few time zones ahead so it’s time to snooze. 😴 Love all your comments & DMs Instafam, I’ll be getting back to you all soon!
