When I Broke My Wrist in Germany
Because I was unable to bring with me very much the Bed and Breakfast I was staying at for a couple of days advised me that nearby there was some storage units for rent where I could store some belongings until I returned from the islands after my contract expired.
Well you woudn't believe what happened! I decided that I would travel around of Europe hitting two countries in particular, that being Germany and Switzerland, so I left my stuff in storage until I returned to pick it up.
Well as it turned out I broke my wrist in Germany so I was unable to fly back home to Canada with much luggage until the wrist mended.
So I asked them if it would be okay if I stored my stuff a while longer. I headed back to Canada and after my wrist was better ended up going back to the cruise ship to work. When my 6 months were up I took a vacation in South Carolina on Myrtle Beach for 6 weeks only to return to the ship again.
In total it was 16 months before I returned to pick up my stuff in Penzance.
One thing I will never forget is how trustworthy the company was to keep my stuff for such a long period of time. All I had to do was keep in touch and let them know where I was.
Sometimes when you are traveling around it is good to know your belongings are in a same place.
