My Love Story
I can remember it like it was yesterday.
Back in 2012 when I was preparing for a 10 day trip to New York and Las Vegas, I realised that I was gonna be stuck on a plane for a long time. Only thing that would keep me going was if I had some company.
I opened up my laptop and typed in “mail order bride” and after several hours perusing through a plethora of sites I realised that (1) I might not be able to listen to her chatting for the whole trip (2) that there would be the inevitable awkward silences (3) I may not be able to understand her.
Solution to this was that I would listen to music to overcome these situations. I already had my iPhone in-ear buds so I didn’t feel the need to buy a new set, but I realised that my battery would not last the journey. So I closed down the multitude of webpages, cleared my history (top tip) and opened up Amazon.
My search for “portable battery pack” returned thousands of results and I got a case of deja-vu with my previous search. I refined my search to show the highest rated first and started from there. It didn’t take me long until I came across the Anker 10000mAh portable battery pack. Reading the description and reviews I was sold. I added it to my cart and waited for its arrival.
Fast forward a few weeks and it was time to take my trip, seems like not all places have the same delivery policies as Amazon - I never did get to meet Ivanka.
But what I can say that me and the battery pack had a great holiday in America and I’m pleased to say that coming upto 6 years later we are still going strong. Although she can be temperamental at times.

And that’s how my love story started lol
