ROFLMAO, that's just awful!!!!! But at least you WENT. :D
Yes, that's true. I got really mad at my camera(a 35mm, old school). Now, every time I see a picture of Eilean Donan, or Loch Ness, I say to myself: "I was there, but have no pictures, argh."
Still, I have a lovely, hand-made , hand woven sweater(a lovely deep blue) I bought in Skye, and fell in love with Edradour Whiskey--made in the smallest distillery in Scotland--which tastes wonderful. When I can, I'm buying another bottle.
Plus, I have some great memories. Traveling alone is interesting. Next time(if there is a next time), I'll base myself in one area and explore the heck out of that area!
Oh, sweetie. I am probably the ONLY person in the U.S. with a BA in Art History who has never been to Europe. Never stepped off this continent... so suckage is all relative. LOL
No, not getting over doesn't suck, getting over and missing KEY sites from one of your ABSOLUTE BAR NONE favorite story cycles? Absolutely makes you crummy in your 'phile status. ;)
Not getting over sucks, but is more of a "the universe is annoying" sucking, rather than an "I suck" situation.. :D
