I don’t like unexpected things… this is my face when something unplanned happened. 😉
Just like Julius Caesar said “No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected”.
Thinking what “surprises” have been in my life I have remembered the vacations of 2016… We have planned a wonderful trip to Austria with some friends, Spanish and French. We all had to meet in Feldkirch, a very nice village near the lake Constance.
Four of us decided to rent a big Mercedes from Spain and to go there to join with the rest and later being able to make all the excursions in one vehicle. It was a good idea even if it didn’t work out.
I don’t want to spend too long but the vehicle got broken when we were going eight hours of trip and then ditched us near Nîmes (France) during FOUR days. 😦
We had to find a hotel by ourself in Nîmes, although we had paid for full insurance and should have been Europcar who find accommodation for us.
The rent company Europcar took four days in giving us a solution and finally we had to take two cars instead of the big Mercedes we had rent. We lost some hotels we had paid, our French friends waiting us in Austria and, the worst… we had tickets to see Turandot in the wonderful floating stage in Bregenz and we couldn’t arrive in time….
Certainly when we return to home, we put it in attorneys’ hands and after one year, Europcar returned the money we had paid for the vehicle to us and compensated the expenses extra that we had had, but all this was not sufficient for this “Unexpected Days”, was not only money what we lost.
