It was the year 2000 way back when I used to work in corporate in the UK. A work colleague friend was leaving to return to Boston & it was his last weekend in the UK. I was free that weekend & asked what he would like to do. He wanted to go somewhere else, to visit somewhere else in Europe for his final weekend. Great idea!
We spent the latter half of the week searching for flights & when we didn't find anything by Friday, I suggested that we come into work with our suitcases & if we still didn't find anything we would go to the airport & see what we can find there.
We finished work early & I drove us to the airport, how exciting! We had no idea where we were going, we were thinking Dublin, or Prague, or Amsterdam,... When we arrived at the airport there was just one flight available, it was to Tenerife!
If you don't know Tenerife is a Spanish island close to Africa, it's a beautiful island that I have visited before, so we got those flights & flew on an almost empty plane to our sunny destination.
When we arrived we hired a car, had dinner, drinks & slept on the black volcanic sand beach. The next day we drove right around the island, stopping for delicious food along the way & swims in the ocean. It was so amazing.
We found a stunning town with a gorgeous hotel, around a courtyard right in the centre of town. Went in to enquire about a room & they only had the honeymoon suite available, which they could give us for the same price as the other rooms, for our inconvenience! It was beautiful, we had access to the roof where we could sit & people watch the plaza. We felt like the universe was treating us to the time of our lives.
On the Sunday we continued to drive the rest of the island & found a beautiful little beach called Los Gigantes, which is named for the giant cliffs around it. It had a little fish restaurant on the beach, so we shared dishes all day, swimming, relaxing in the sunshine until the sun started to get low & we thought, it might be a good idea to fly home now!
Arriving at the airport, completely convinced that the universe was giving us the best of the best, we were shocked & amused to find out that there were no seats on the flight back left available. It was fully booked. Not only that but the airport was closed on Mondays too, so we had problem on our hands!
My friend said that if he didn't get back he would have to work another week to fulfilled his contract, so it was really important that he get back. We went on standby for the 2 fully booked flights to return.
One passenger didn't turn up to the first flight, so I took the seat, my car was at that airport & I told him to just get back to the UK anywhere & I will collect him from whichever airport he lands at.
I landed to receive a text message from him that one passenger hadn't turned up for the second flight & so he was an hour behind me to the same airport! Phew!
We arrived home at about 3am.
I arrived in work first the next day & when people asked how my weekend was, all I could do was laugh. I had to wait for him to get into work to tell everyone what we had done.
No matter how impossible things might seem, if you go after your dreams the universe will ALWAYS support you in them.
