Fly Me to the Moon
So traveling alone is pretty exciting, especially when normally you do it with small children. I get a tremendous kick out of figuring out a new place, moving through airports and train stations, and arriving into strange situations. But when something goes wrong when traveling, like things often do, you realize how alone you really are. You can’t split up to find the answer to your problem. You can’t leave the luggage with someone else to explore options. Of course, your phones don’t work. And if no one is waiting for you at home, no one will miss you if you don’t show up. That’s maybe not so exciting, but sort of depressing and a bit scary.
