Just a thread to post some of your little wins, where Lady Luck was on your side. This can be about anything you like.

My wife and I had just arrived into Osaka to begin our honeymoon. We’d always wanted to go to Japan and had been attempting to learn enough Japanese to not look like stupid gaijin. However we had just come off almost a full 24 hours of travelling (17h flight London to Seoul, 2h layover, 2h flight Seoul to Osaka) and arrived very late at the hotel (very close to midnight). I stepped forward to the check-in desk, ready to butcher the language and the gods smiled… An Australian was manning the desk that night! We were saved from butchering the language until the morning when we could do so with clear heads.
