If God exists, he's smiting me [Aug. 25th, 2005|09:30 am]
I should just learn not to plan travel or to celebrate occasions anymore.

9/11 - Two weeks before my birthday, i'm due to travel home to Florida from Arizona. Lo and behold idiots crash planes into the Twin Towers delaying my flight by 4 days.

Sept. 25 2004 - Hurricane Jeanne, the second hurricane to hit Palm Beach that year, makes landfall ON my birthday.

Tonight/Tomorrow - A tropical storm/hurricane threatens but most likely going to delay my trip to Canada.

I'm fucking over this shit.

LOL well, your luck seems to go bad around your birthday and involving air travel. trains are land and therefore out of the range of your peculiar vacationing curse. ;p

I just wanted to tell you...

When the hurricane threatened WPB, the airports/airlines naturally shut down and cancelled service. Turns out the hurricane didn't affect my part of the county... but I'd gone through changing my ticket with Southwest, only to have that change cancelled also. I tried booking a ticket (that they SAID was refundable but it's not) with Continental but they ended up cancelling too.

So next spring, I can use that unused Continental ticket towards one to visit you. :) Let's hope something doesn't happen then. LOL

my friend was in his freshman year of college when 9/11 happened. he got a front-row seat to it - his dorm on staten island faced the city, and he lived on the 12th floor.

just this year, he went to london and paris for a week, and the day he was set to go to paris from london, the bombings happen.

we joke that we shouldn't travel with him ever.

maybe you can at least take comfort in not being the only one? i don't know.

The day after my grandparents left Egypt, a bomb went off in their hotel.
The day after my parents left Venezuela, there was a military coup.
The week before I went to Italy, there was a bomb found in the Rome train station.

My family has very, very good luck when it comes to travel. XD
