It’s ok to make mistakes

So sometimes things dont go to plan…so what?

Today for the first time in over 8 months of traveling I made my first real blooper and missed the only bus out of here. It wasn’t through laziness or being late, I just got the time completely wrong. A pretty stupid mistake I know but I am only human.

It took about a minute for my lip to stop doing that wobble thing after I had realised my mistake. Now to sort it out. I visited a tourist centre rebooked my bus for tomorrow and then looked for somewhere to stay for the night. Turned out my hostel was fully booked as were most other places in town. So through no choice of my own…Im in the cheapest place I could find, which just happens to be a 4 star luxury apartment with a view of the lake. Ooooops. It was’t ready when I enquired so I just had to go to the pub and have a cup of tea whilst I waited. Problem solved and celebrated the true British way. Hurrah!

It was an expensive mistake to make but I’m seeing it as a blessing in disguise. I’m actually pretty exhausted from yesterday and now I have time to update my blog and email a few people back. I’v even drawn a Kea in my rough ipad sketch style. Win. Sometimes things don’t always turn out the way you expect but something will happen.
