We all have those moments during life when we look back and think – "Wow, I would have done that one differently if I had to do it again." And there is always the ever popular "Hindsight is 20/20 vision".
Those concepts can be most certainly be applied to travel.
Here is a list things I coulda, woulda or shoulda done differently. And therefore, I regret.
I regret having that extra glass of wine at Polidor in Paris, which led me to run through the Cluny Museum at record speed. Feeling a little dizzy I burst through the doors out onto the garden and parked it on a bench where I lay down to sleep it off.
I regret making a typo on the names when purchasing airline tickets which resulted in a $1500 duplicate charge to my credit card. I let my Credit Union duke it out with CheapTickets. And on a lighter note, I learned not to book with CheapTickets again. The whole transaction left me less than thrilled!
I regret fearing to travel to foreign countries, not being fluent in the language.
I regret not taking more than two years of French in high school.
I regret believing the copy on the website of a B&B in Newport that said they were just a short walk away from the harbor. If a short walk constitutes about a half-mile, uphill- than that's my bad.
