I was going to continue with my digital nomad expenses post but I am too exhausted.
Today was a travel day. They're always tiring but not to today's extent.
We were leaving Split to head back to Toronto. We had a layover in London. The layover was only an hour and we had to change terminals so I was nervous we wouldn't make it. Any delay and we'd be pretty screwed.
Well, we were delayed five hours. Making our connection was basically out of the question. Our second flight left London before we boarded in Split.
Usually, you can call the airline and they'll put you on standby for the next flight out. Unfortunately for us, we booked the two legs separately so we had to eat the loss. Bye bye $700.
Luckily, we were able to book flights out the next day for around the same price. We booked a tiny room in a hotel at Gatwick.
We're going to file a claim with our first airline as well to see if we can be compensated for the delay.
All it all, it could be a lot worse but we could also be in Toronto right now eating my mom's food. Not a very glamorous day in the life of a nomad. I'm so tired…
