VIDEO: When Things Go WRONG, The Adventure Begins!
I was recently chatting with a “Long Long Honeymoon” viewer on Facebook about our RV travels. She told me her own travel motto: “When things go wrong, the adventure begins.” I like this phrase very much.
It would be easy to portray our travels as something straight out of a glossy brochure. You can picture the scenes… Our RV is always parked in a pristine natural environment. The weather is always beautiful. It’s always “the magic hour,” and the setting sun always bathes our activities in warm glowing tones.
But in the real world, it’s not sunny all of the time. We don’t always make the correct turn, even when our GPS is barking out step-by-step instructions. Food doesn’t always sit well on my stomach. Our campsites aren’t always green and leafy. And our Airstream? Although we love it, it doesn’t always work the way it should.
There are so many variables when you travel. It’s impossible for everything to go right all of the time — and wouldn’t life be boring if it did?
I’ve said before that a sense of humor is essential to enjoying RV travel. But really, it’s essential to enjoying life. When times get tough, it helps tremendously to find comfort in a laugh.
Are you planning to take a big RV trip this year? You’d better believe that things will go wrong. When they do, remind yourself that “the adventure” has begun. Laugh about it. Don’t take out your frustrations on your spouse or travel partner. Don’t let it spoil your trip. Heck, don’t even let it spoil your day.
Sometimes it’s best to relax and enjoy the ride — especially when the ride gets bumpy.
