It’s not the destination, it’s the ride. I saw a bus and decided to take a ride to Chaguanas, this is considered to be in the central part of the island of Trinidad. The bus had a sign that read “Montrose”. I was not a 100% that this bus would take me where I needed to go, nevertheless, I entered.
I observed that he took a detour that buses heading to South Trinidad would take. I felt like a tourist in my country. Instead of proceeding along the highway, he drove along one of the main streets, thereby encountering traffic.
The other passengers were mainly elderly persons, and they were elated to see each other. I saw a familiar police station and realised that I was in fact familiar with the area. However, to arrive at my destination, I would need to take a maxi taxi.
It felt like a joyride that was misguided.
I began thinking, sometimes we see an opportunity that appears to be something that it is not. We are lured by the immediate gratification offered. When we do in fact take the opportunity, we are disappointed. In the event that this happens, try to catch a connecting flight or ride and make your dreams come through.
