I am sure such a topic will bring up stories of nightmares that happened when people jetted off for their holidays. I am glad that in your case things worked out fine in the end, they probably were impressed with your eagerness to get the job ;) Alexandra - http://www.holidaysintheuk.com

## ... otherwise he would have been none the wiser! If it had been a bumpy ride he might just have been "none"

My dad recalled waiting in a plane in Africa, sizzling on the tarmac while the loading completed. He saw out of the window that some crates were marked 'Mining Explosives'; when he told the crew they got everyone out until the hold was checked and the paperwork re-issued, without the dynamite. As a bio-scientist he could read the German crate labelling, otherwise he would have been none the wiser!

Good advice Rene. I got to the point where I could travel from Zimbabwe to Europe for a week with only hand luggage And when I did have to take something bigger, I got a suitcase that doubled as a backpack. Makes it much easier than lugging even a wheeled suitcase.

But how did you "learn this lesson"? It sounds like there's a tale to be told here...

Better a week early rather than a week late :-)

Or maybe they could see that one day I would be "Magnificent" :-)

The solution to that is to leave your infants at home with your wife (my bill is in the post :-)

I learned this lesson way back, always travel ligth and hand carry my essntial clothes. Never with luggage that I can not control. I have always made a point of knowing the place were I am going to interview, even catch a glimps of who, if anyone works after hours.

“What are you talking about? You’re a day early – we weren’t expecting you until tomorrow!” I actually showed up a week early for an interview once. The people I was interviewing weren't in the office so the receptionist ended up calling several of them before everyone realized my calendoric foul up. I did not get that job.
