It’s funny how the unexpected can always lead to a good outcome. While spending some time in Italy, I was staying at this hostel in Rome. It was pretty good. While on the way out to a pub crawl, there were some girls coming up the stairs to check into the hostel. My friend’s started talking to them. They were pretty cute after all. They wanted to come with us but it was already late and we were late to meet up with this pub crawl. My friend’s said we would wait. I wasn’t keen on the idea. I wanted to go. We were missing the action. There would be more girls at the pub crawl. No, no they insisted.
The girls took forever. Eventually, they came out and we went to the pub crawl. We made it just in time. Over the course of the night, I got to talking to one of the girls we waited for. She was really cool, friendly, and smart.
We ended up traveling for two months together and still remain close. All because I waited. Patience is a virtue. On the road, go with the unexpected- you never know where it might lead.
