Airplane travel is Nature’s way of making you look like your passport photo.” – Al Gore
As trips go, this one started out as nothing less than a disaster.
It all started at the end of the first leg of my trip back to South Korea. With just over an hour and a half between flights in San Francisco, I was in a hurry to get off the plane, check in, and make it through security in time for boarding. I was so absorbed in doing this that I didn’t realize I’d left my camera on the plane until I was waiting to board my second flight.
After accidentally searing the ears of a family nearby, I took a deep breath and did a quick cost analysis in my head. It would probably be cheaper and certainly less stressful to buy a new camera similar to my ‘old’ one than to book a new flight. Worst case scenario, I’d have to buy a new camera. Best case, the flight attendants would find mine and turn it in to the desk. Who knows, maybe they’d be able to send it to Korea.
