Unexpected journey to Macedonia
Hello, I am Ann from Spain. I had a very unexpected journey to Macedonia last summer. This was the best trip I had ever had. My birthday is on June 21st. My husband had promised to give me a special surprise for my 25th birthday. He knew I had always dreamed of going to Macedonia. So, last summer, on June 21st, my husband comes to me in the morning, with a paper in his hands. Approaching, I noticed a ticket. I asked what the ticket was for. He smiled, answering that it was a ticket for us and that the ticket would take us to Macedonia. I couldn’t believe my ears. I checked the ticket. Everything was right. It was a ticket to Macedonia. I packed my things in a rush, because the the ticket was for an hour later. We took a taxi, went to the airport, showed the ticket and got on the plane. We used Austrian airlines - an amazing atmosphere and caring staff! Soon, we arrived in Macedonia. It was unbelievable. I was holding my ticket in my hand and looking at the ticket again and again. My dream to get a ticket to Macedonia was fulfilled.
Ticket for a ticket
Hello, I am Jimmy from France. My characteristic of being absent-minded has always been my biggest shortcoming. Last spring I started to save money for a year, so as to be able to travel to Macedonia in spring of 2017. I saved the greatest amount of my salary and ordered a ticket for Macedonia on April 16th. I searched for the cheapest ticket, because I wanted to mainly spend my money on sightseeing in Macedonia. The day came…I went to take my ticket and quickly travelled to the airport to not be late. I went to the company, took the ticket, and left. After 20 minutes I was in the airport, waiting for my turn. The airline was airSerbia. I like this airline, and I have used it before, too. Finally it was my turn. I showed my visa, handed in my ticket and I was in shock…the country name on my ticket was not Macedonia. I got nervous and started to wonder what to do when I got a call on my phone. It was the owner of the ticket. He asked to wait for 5 minutes, because he was on the way to airport. Soon I found him walking around the airport. He returned my ticket and I returned his ticket to him. This was a ticket-for-ticket exchange.
