A great rule to traveling is to never waste a day doing it. If your flight is delayed, smile at the nearest person and buy her a drink. Emily, the nearest person to me at the time is a talented & intelligent lawyer who doubles as a part time bikini model. She hates law, and is well read and most of the time takes payment in the form of wine, meal or a free surfing lesson.
Our 10am flight was delayed due to mechanical issues and was to leave at 230pm. After much laughter, I joked we should go to the beach and come back. A 39$ car rental and 40 minutes later we were sitting at the beach renewing our glow. Emily was gracious enough to let me add her to my portfolio as a real first solo woman shoot.
