Whenever I go traveling I have a saying that few things can’t be fixed with a credit card. If, for instance, you forget something, you most likely would be able to buy something that’s just like the thing you forgot.

Sure, it might be a bit inconvenient, but it’s not something that’s going to affect your trip overly much.

Like today… today on the Victoria Clipper heading from Seattle to Victoria, BC I realized I forgot the charging cable for my Mac.

No worries. Just two blocks from the hotel there’s an Apple-specific store. (No, not an Apple Store, ReStart Computer) A few minutes later: solved.

It’s good to be prepared, but part of the preparation is to make sure you can solve problems as they might come up.
