Last week I went to the United Kingdom to visit my friend. The trip was nice, but was slightly ruined by the fact that I had a horrible allergic reaction. My face swelled up like a balloon, I had rashes everywhere and my eyes were doing nothing but itch and run. So not the most pleasant vacation! It was still nice to meet my friend though, just a shame that I should get so sick.
My misfortune during this holiday didn’t end with the allergic reaction though (which I’m now finally getting better from after getting some steroids from the doctor). When we were driving back to the airport, for my return flight we got stuck in a horrible traffic jam… And I missed my flight home!
I was really upset at the time. Fortunately I could get the next flight out later in the evening, but it was an extra expense that no one had planned for. We left early enough in the morning to have plenty of time for the drive. It was just such bad luck that there was a traffic jam quite that bad.
