Today’s blog is a bit different. We often receive stories from Edel-Optics customers that sweeten our day incredibly. This is the reason why we try to give our best at work every day to give you this unique purchasing experience.
Below you can read a short story by Lucy, that I am sure we can all empathize with. Have fun reading it!
It is 1 p.m. on Thursday. My suitcase is packed, the anticipation immense! Tomorrow I am finally off on holiday, this time to Thailand. I am so excited; it is the first time I am going to Asia, on a two-week road trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand. The lifestyle is very casual there, the old town is magical, offering many different night markets with fantastic food and the most beautiful souvenirs. There are also some great national parks, beautiful mountain landscapes, waterfalls and lakes. In addition to Chiang Mai, I am also planning make a day trip to the hippie town of Pai and to Chiang Rai. As you can guess, I can hardly wait to get there! And above all, I will be glad to escape the cold autumn weather here in England (16 degrees). In Bangkok, it is currently 30 degrees, an absolute dream!
I lean back in my armchair, relaxed; I am really proud of myself; the suitcase is already packed, the apartment is spick and span and everything on my to-do list has been ticked off. I quickly take a selfie for my girlfriend to update her on how things are going. She immediately replies attaching a photo of herself wearing her newly bought sunglasses, with the text “Don’t forget yours!”
Suddenly it dawned on me. All morning I had had the feeling of having forgotten something; as I often do. This time it was the sunglasses. My brother had accidentally sat on my sunglasses and they were unrepairably damaged. But at the time I thought I didn’t need a new pair for this dismal autumn weather. Realizing the necessity for Thailand, I spontaneously decided to go to an optician in the city where I found these gorgeous elegant sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana, but the price was far too high. “I’m sure I can find them cheaper online” I think. A short time later I found them at www.edel-optics.co.uk, at a super bargain price with guaranteed shipping with UPS Express to arrive the next business day. I was over the moon!
On Friday morning, my doorbell rang just in time, because my flight was leaving in four hours. What a service, I was really thrilled to put my beautiful sunglasses into my handbag. For those, who are just as spontaneous and sometimes as chaotic as am, I highly recommend the UPS-Express shipping option! Sunny Thailand, here I come!
