When American Airlines informed us that when we landed in Madrid our connecting flight to Istanbul had changed to over 24 hours later than expected, we did a great job not freaking out. While in the TSA line at O’Hare we contacted our AirBNB in Istanbul and booked a hotel in Madrid on points. This was the most wonderful unexpected travel disaster that we have ever experienced. We got a chance to see Madrid and eat prawns while adjusting to the time change. Sometimes when you travel it offers free marriage counseling. This was a great way for us to roll with it and forced us to deal with the unexpected. I guess when the unexpected is a day in Spain, though, we’d kind of be assholes if we complained.
