Have you ever heared about the police statistics on missed people? After 48 hours the chances of finding them alive go down to almost zero while the chance of a crime increases exponentially. So when you imagine this graph, it looks strangely similar to the statistics of finding your luggage again after your airline lost it. Within 24 hours 90 percent of all bags are found, after 3 days less than 5 per cent can be found ever ever again. According to the same statistics about 90.000 bags get lost worldwide while travelling by plane
So why am I telling you this now?
I've been flying to Sicily for Easter, and although the holidays were sunny and awesome and busy and happy and lovely, as soon as I came back I was left literally naked in Switzerland at the airport. Now all my drawing equipment is officially lost somewhere in South Europe (besides less important things as socks and toothbrush). Too much time has passed, I've been below the 5 percent for too long now. But hey, guess what? My backpack beats statistics by becoming somehow alive again! After I was having lots of trouble within the last days the Romans found it. There is hope again I can upload drawings in the near future, woohoo
I'm so relieved I don't have to look for places to buy the right drawing and (more important) hiking equipment again because I needed like an eternity to get this comfortable with my stuff.
Long story put short: Don't trust in statistics and never ever loose hope. Better trust in karma. Be nice to others and it will come back to you.
I hope you've all had nice bank holidays, and I'm excited to check my message inbox now!
