Its critical that we keep in view were we are going, on a recent trip to the USA I made a mistake on not doing that. I wanted to travel to Bloomington, so booked the flights arrived at the airport, stood for an hour in freezing winds waiting for a taxi, was praying for one to arrive and for me to get the hotel safely, one did arrive and I showed the driver my hotel print out and he read the details and looked then looked at me and said “no such place” what look this is real sir I have a print out from the hotel look at the address, he did and said no such road in this town sir, but if the went to the Bloomington in Indiana you might find it there, you see I was standing in Bloomington Illinois and not Indiana which was a good 300 miles away, IL not IN as it clearly said on the booking form if only I had eyes to see. The look on the drivers face was priceless though, victory he had me, then the light went on and he said I could drive you there only take 4 – 5 hours, I hastily retreated to the airport and thankfully finally managed to arrive in Bloomington Indiana a bit later than planned but God got me there! Trust him he’ll get you to you destination to, journey might not be what you want but it’ll be what you need.
