So I met this really nice woman from Pakistan on the airport terminal shuttle bus. Pakistan is in my top 5 countries I’m dying to go to so I was super excited to talk to her. It was just her and her daughter traveling back home and they spoke no Chinese and didn’t know what terminal they needed to go to and they had more luggage than what 5 people could carry so I spent the past hour translating for them, looking up flight information, and helping them get to their correct terminal. She hugged me like a million times and we exchanged phone numbers. Now I have a place to stay in Pakistan!
I just remember what it was like for my mom to travel with me and my little sister all around Europe as a single mom and never speaking the language. I just remember all the nice people helping us and I’m just glad I could help this mom.
