I have a pretty bad travel habit of always waiting until the last minute to head to the airport.
Some people like to get to the airport three hours early. I’m not one of those people.
In fact, when I flew to Bogota a few weeks ago from Santiago, I arrived to the airport at 7:50am for an 8:25am flight.
That’s cutting it pretty close, and it doesn’t leave any room for error.
This morning I was in the same boat, leaving my hotel in downtown Denver at a time that left very little room for error.
Then ‘error’ happened. Standing outside in the cold drizzle waiting for the car to pull up, the concierge told me that the driver had just been pulled over by the police and would be at least another 15 minutes… 15 minutes that I didn’t have.
The next car that pulled up had been ordered by another guest at the hotel. So without hesitation I asked him if he was heading to the airport. He was, and graciously offered me a ride.
It turned out to be one of those great opportunities that the universe presents from time to time… lemons into lemonade.
