Funny travel story 3

The tour guide, named Lily, arrived at the lithuanian airport at midnight for a business trip, with her wife Dani. They were rushing, considering their taxi was waiting for them outside. They ran towards the baggage claim area, Dani picking up the first suitcase that looked like theirs, went outside and got in the taxi quickly because it was the peak of winter.

They go to the hotel, checked in, and head to their room. It was freezing, so they wanted warmer clothes as soon as possible. Lily opens the suitcase and gasps in shock, calling for her wife. As Dani came, she gasped in disbelief, saying…

„Why is there a red wig in our suitcase? And a red nose?

bowtie? Lily, what’s going on?“

Lily looks at her and asks „Why is there a clown suit in our suitcase?“

Dani replies „This isn’t our suitcase…“

Lily gets annoyed and says „Of course it isn’t, you absolute clown! I need my notes for tomorrow’s tour!“

Dani smirks and says „Well, you did say you wanted to spice up your style, so here you have your new outfit, it’ll suit you.“

Lily tries to hold her laugh in, but is unsuccessful, chuckling along with Dani. „Don’t worry, we’ll call the airport and figure out where our luggage is.“

After they called the airport, they got the contact information of the person who had their suitcase, called him, and set up a meeting for tomorrow morning. When they got to the airport, they saw a person standing at the entrance, holding a suitcase identical to theirs. They almost sprinted to him.

„Hi! Are you Cameron? We spoke on the phone last night.“

“ Yeah, that was me! Hi, I’m glad you called me, I have rehearsal in a few hours and I need my stuff, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw maps, notes and pictures about Vilnius!“

„We’re so sorry for the inconvenience, we were just as surprised to see clown attire in our suitcase“ she says, laughing awkwardly. They trade the suitcases, say their goodbyes, and just as they start walking away Cameron calls for them and says:

„Hey guys, maybe you’d like to come to my show tonight near the shopping center? I have two spare tickets, tonight at 8pm.“

Lily and Dani look at each other and start laughing, remembering last night „We’d love to“..

And they lived happily ever after…

We were four: two boys and two girls. The only girl, Federica,  was taller than me and I was not so thin as her. Can you imagine me wearing boy’s clothes or Federica’s ones?

Raffaele at lost and found

Character: Me, teacher, classmates 

Setting: Vilnius airport 

Problem:  Raffaele at lost and found 

Paragraph 1

It was the day of departure, my friends and I got up early. The alarm clock was played at six in the morning and everyone, even if very tired,were prepared to leave our rooms and go for breakfast, after the last regards to the Lithuanian camerades, with we all had a nice relationship with, we went up on the bus that would have taken us to the airport.

On the road we listened to Neapolitan songs to rejoice and even some right prayers to be calm. As soon as we arrived at Vilnius airport we explored the airport since our flight would have took off in two hours. We all approached the souvenir shop and I took five souvenirs.

Paragraph 2

Just arrived at cash to pay,  I had to empty the whole bag, and in the end after having taken my passport and various documents, I found the wallet. I ran everything in my bag and then I reached my group. As soon as I arrived my teacher counted us and realized that we were not all present. My friend Raffaele was not there.

We waited a little to see if he would have come back by himself. After a while we began a real race against time to look for him, even because his mobile was off.

We divided and turned around the airport. We all started to scream his name and many people looked hurt, we also found some boys dressed like him and for this reason we had some  foolishes, also because they were not Italian and we didn’t know how to explain  them what was happening. After almost half an hour of researches we heard the speaker announcing “ Mr. Raffaele Avino is waiting for his teachers and his classmates to lost objects office, please come to resume him. After this announcement we all burst into laughing and we felt a little raised. When we went to take him back, we laughed at him and he justified himself saying only: But I was looking at airplanes flying, I was so excited and when I turned my head  behind all of you had disappeared”. At  the end after this “man hunting” we walked to the gate and took the plane. Luckily everything ended well and we returned  home safe and still today, at distance of months, we continued to make fun of him for this episode

Arrivai all’aeroporto di Vilnius alle ore 12:00 mi guardai intorno e mi resi conto che era enorme poi  poco dopo in compagnia del mio fidanzato e delle mie amiche ci dirigemmo verso l’hotel ma poco dopo mi bloccai sul posto e mi resi conto che avevo lasciato il passaporto sul sedile dell’aereo, mi girai e iniziai a correre verso l’aereo prima che potesse partire, era un aereo enorme e nero visto da fuori faceva quasi paura, cercai di entrare nell’aereo ma una hostess provò a bloccarmi fallendo a causa della mia fretta.

Recuperai il passaporto e trovai il mio fidanzato che non mi ero accorta mi avesse seguita, fuori all’aereo ad aspettarmi, lo presi per mano e ci dirigemmo verso l’hotel dove mi radunai con le mie amiche e raccontai immediatamente l’accaduto e loro come da previsione mi scoppiarono a ridere in faccia, allora non mi riuscì  a trattenere incominciai a ridere anche io prendendo la situazione con ironia.
