This is what happens when two of the most laid-back, likes-to-sleep in, un-phased, and un-planned travelers decide to take a trip together.
Back in September
Pete: Hey man, lets go somewhere
Phil: Yeah cool. How bout the Greek Islands or some shit?
Pete: Yeah alright, we leave in 3 weeks.
Phil: I have no money
Pete: I don’t care
OCTOBER 9 – 6:30am (flight 8:50am)
Pete: Shit, we should leave in 5min
Pete: Want some more toast?
Phil: Yeah alright
8:00am Gatwick Airport
Airport Chic: I’m afraid you’ve missed your check-in
Us: Ohh no (depressed)
Chic: We can get you on another one
Us: Ohh cool (optimistic)

Us: Ohh shit… (Depressed)
