The season premiere of "Mike and Molly" depicted something that is very common for many people while traveling: a crisis. In the show, Mike goes on a "guy's only" camping trip with some friends. All of the men are fishing in the middle of a lake when Mike (who is a rather large man) stands up and moves to one side of the boat. This causes the boat to quickly fill with water -- ultimately sinking the vessel.
We all know this is not likely to happen on a family camping trip. This was written into the show for comic relief. However the point of the scene is illustrated well. It is easy for a highly anticipated and planned trip to quickly become disastrous. Believe me I have also had my fair share of disastrous traveling experiences. My husband and I had a near disastrous Honeymoon two years ago. Let's just say we know now to make sure we read, and re-read, the flight information boards and always go to our airplane's terminal before venturing out for food!
The message I'm trying to bring home to you through this post is this: traveling, and life in general, is not always perfect. People are bound to get flat tires, come across rude people or be forced to sit through a two hour rain delay during the Cubs game. The imperfect memories are likely ones that will ultimately make the trip even more memorable, and a lesson could be learned after experiencing the mishap. Life is messy -- you choose to make it what you want.
I am choosing to share with you my traveling insights, foodie thoughts, entertainment takes and much more in this blog.
