Traveling is fun, but we would be lying if we said every travel moment is perfect. This was one such moment.
This is a picture of me (Kapil) looking and waiting for some good news.
When we got to Milan and waited for our bags at the baggage carousel, Saadia picked up her bags but we waited a very long time for mine, only to realize something was wrong. My bags didn’t arrive. We spent hours trying to find right representatives to track down the bags but that turned out to be a struggle as well. At last, it was discovered that the bag was sent to Germany, much to our horror.
We missed our train to Venice, of course. Things got more crazy having to shop for new clothes on daily basis. We waited for days and not much information was provided as to when the bags would be sent to our hotel. International surcharge on all outbound calls were racked up trying to get help. Finally, on the last day when we were leaving for Amsterdam...just hours before, we got my bag in our hotel lobby! It came wet and all my dietary and fitness needs were tossed.
Venice is a stunning city but it is one of those places where we will always remember our experience as a very expensive one.
Holiday season is upon us and this is also peak season at the airports. Don’t wait till the last minute to get to the airport. Security lines can be big and always ensure to save your baggage claim tags in case you will need help tracking your bags.
Have you had any travel mishaps or memorable situation? Do let us know. We’d love to hear from you!
