This post will not include any photos...because how do you take photos of total crooks?!?
Our honeymoon was a great experience...except for two specific things/incidents.
After spending a glorious 7 days relaxing and basically doing nothing in Australia, we packed up all of our belongings into the rental car, said goodbye to the amazing husband and wife managers of the apartments we had been staying at and headed off for the airport. We needed to re-fuel the rental car so we pulled into the gas station right next door to the apartments. Mr Fix It ran in to pay for the gas, buy some Rockstar energy drinks (bleck!) and then pumped the gas and jumped in the car. As soon as we pulled out of the gas station, he reached for the sunglasses he had placed on top of his head since the sun was out...only to realize they weren't there. He frantically began looking through the car and then suddenly said "Oh man! I think I set them down on the counter when I was paying for the gas."
Now why he would take them off of his head to set them down I don't know, but whatever. We made a quick u-turn and headed back into the gas station. Only when Mr Fix It jumped out and ran in to retrieve them, the man behind the counter informed him that the gentlemen who was in line behind him had picked them up and carried them off. What a total thief!!! I swear, we weren't even gone three minutes before we came back and some loser in Oz had to ruin the last moments we had in the country by stealing something from us!
Mr Fix It was not happy but what are you gonna do? He ended up buying a cheap pair of $4 sunglasses in Bali to get him through the next week til we returned home. Which leads me to my next story...stay tuned tomorrow!
