Maggie’s Series of Unfortunate Events

With all the traveling I’ve done in the past few years, one would assume this trip would be going smoothly. On the contrary, I have been plagued with little misfortunes throughout my journey across Australia. Big or small, they are dynamic contributions to my overall experience in Oz. At some point, I was actually convinced that I would never make it back home because the bad luck seems to get worse each time. The ongoing bad encounters had held me back from pursuing a more adventurous journey. Perhaps the extra precautions I have taken had saved my ass more than I have realized. Many of the sticky situations could have been much worse and sometimes something positive come out of these encounters.

Here goes the series of Maggie’s unfortunate events:

  • 8/2 – Obnoxious toddler fidgeting next to me on the flight to Melbourne
