Today was our last full day and we keep the best for the end, the paradise called us. It was so simple we took some fast boat ticket, in 25-30 min you’re there. Then we had the choice between a scooter or bicycles, clearly, we were both more secure with the second choice.
So when we arrived we got our bicycles and were ready to get to the beach called Playa Illetes, we parked our bikes and my dear friend Léa locked them with a lock given by the agency. But, yes there is a but, she was telling to herself that she didn’t want to put the key to her bag right now so she kept in her hands during our 10 min walk to the beach.
Then we arrived at the beach we were literally speechless in front of the water so she jumps to make a video of the clearest water I ever saw. Here the drama came, she dropped and lost the key… I didn’t have the time to put down my beach towel when she looked at me and scream : I can’ find the key !
So we were looking everywhere and we thought that we’re gonna find it because it was a black one and with the beige sand it all make sense, right ? Yeah, well no.. We didn’t find after a 20 min searching walk.
She called the man from the agency and explain the situation and at first, he didn’t understand he told us, « no worries come back at the end of the day with the bikes, no worry about the key ». But the real problem was that we locked them and couldn’t come back at the start point. When he realized the real situation, he came within 10 min with his scooter and save our asses.
A real gentleman came with a saw, so I was thinking in my head that we weren’t the first one with this kind of awkward situation… He gave a new key and look at both of us and told us to really keep this one until we come back, haha. That was our fun story to tell when the trip was over.
