Before I left France, I mailed a box home to my family. Inside this box were a number of things: letters from friends, postcards and coins I’d collected during my travels, a Ramos kit I wanted my brothers to have, a carry on bag I was returning to my family because I’m thoughtful like that, that map of France I’d pinned places on and, finally, a scrapbook that I’d made of all the places I’d gone and things I’d done since I’d left Canada. I waited. And waited. AND WAITED. for them to get this box because I just wanted all the praise of a job well done. Unfortunately….
Unfortunately, I got an e-mail from my mom telling me that yay! they did get the box but nay, it was empty. Well, that carry on bag that I had returned, as well as the better part of the letter I’d written to them was in the box. Everything else? Yeah, not there. Which means that, for the last five-ish days, I’ve been trying to fill out the box company’s online report form, only to be greeted, repeatedly, with the message that they’re having ‘technical difficulties’. As well, I have to phone the post office that I mailed the box out of, which has been annoying in and of itself because of plans that I’ve had in London that happen to coincide with the very, very few hours said office is open. Luckily, I had taken pictures of the scrapbook I had made, intended for you, the general viewing audience, but, instead, is the small thing I can do for my family in lieu of the missing, physical items. Hopefully everyone will enjoy seeing what I worked on and hopefully over the next week, once I’m settled in Spain, I can start figuring out how to figure out what happened to my stuff. Enjoy!
