The Guy That Got Away

A travel story

I’m headed through Heathrow Airport this week, the first time since November 2019. The pandemic obviously interrupted my travel schedule.

I’m headed to Wales to see my family. My mom is from there and her family still lives there.

As my mind mentally organizes the million things it processes before a trip, I thought of him. The man that got away.



We exclusively publish memoirs: The creative stories unpacked from the nostalgic hope chests of our lives.
