“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
-Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
I have met people that hate to travel. They tell me that travel is stressful: delayed planes, stinky people on their train, language barriers causing confusion.
Travel is a Joy – Even with Customs
Bad things just happen and it’s only when they travel. Yes, I don’t LOVE the customs line and it irks me when a guy is clipping his fingernails in the airport. But, I don’t know if I’d ever let it stop me from enjoying the wonders of travel. For me, it’s a mindset. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and breathe. I mean, is it really so bad? Can’t you find some kind of joy?
Last May, this beautiful couple pictured above, Chando and Kelly, spent their honeymoon in Punta Cana. What a pleasure it was to work with them on such a special trip. Their trip was lovely. In Kelly’s words,
There just are not enough words to express how perfect our honeymoon was.”As any travel professional will tell you, this is the kind of feedback that we love to get.
Do you want to know a secret? Their trip wasn’t exactly perfect. There was a hiccup. Kelly and Chando’s return flight connected through Miami. When they got to Miami, they found out they had a 7 hour layover instead of the 3 hour one they had anticipated.
Travel Flight Delays – An Opportunity to Explore
I texted Chando when I got the alert about the layover. I wanted to see how they were doing. Here’s what he said, “We’re great. We took advantage of the time to explore Miami. We’re sitting here having margaritas.”
They could have yelled at the gate agent. They could have blasted their anger all over social media, complaining to anyone who would listen. They could have let this layover taint their entire honeymoon memory.
Did they? Nope.
They made the best of an annoying situation, adding even more fabulous honeymoon memories.
