Twiddling My Thumbs

I’m still in Melbourne. My debit card expires on February 29, which is tomorrow. My parents sent my new card to me about two weeks ago and it still hasn’t arrived. If it doesn’t show up in the next two days, I’m really going to be up a creek without a paddle. I will have to contact my bank and have another card sent overnight, or as fast as something can get to Australia.

Until I can get that taken care of, I’m pretty much stuck here. I can’t really rent a car and I cant leave this facility because this is where the card is supposed to show up.

I’ve had a stomach ache all day. I’m trying to improve my diet. I’ve eaten a lot of fruit the last day and I think my body is adjusting. This is definitely the part of traveling which is no fun. The “not traveling” part.

Also, let me make my periodic shout out to vote for my site in the Bloggers Choice Awards. I’m up against a guy in the best travel blog category who runs a hostel in Buenos Aires. He gets his customers to vote for him, so I have an uphill battle. I’ve been in first place for a while, but he’s pulled up even.

    Maybe buy yourself some traveler’s checks to help in the short term? At least it’s a little safer than cash.
