Just after July year ago me and my cousin Tom decided to go away for holiday to New Zealand.
I was very excited, because it was travel from my dreams.
I had always daydreamed that I will see landscape of New Zealand where Peter Jackson
had made film “Lord of the Rings”.
On the beginning of my trip not everything went perfect. On the airport in Amsterdam we had huge problem with custom – officer, because he was sure that J am smuggler of narcotics.
He had verified all my luggage, passport, ticket and me very cerfully. He had tested me almost 2 hours. In this care we had to wait 8 hours more for next flight.
I was extremely shaked, but it wasn’t end of my problems.
I was happy when we had arrived to New Zealand. Our Hotel room had disappointed us, but it was much better place then walls of cell that had waited for me. Variety landscape, fresh air,
delicious food and nice people had come into possession of my heart. I had spend wonderful time with my cousin
Unfortunately, day of my departure had became. I had leave New Zealand tears on my eyes. In Amsterdam I was stopped by suspicious custom officer who discovered six butterflies hidden in a box of chocolate. The butterflies could be worth huge amount of money to dealers who would sell them to collectors.
I had no idea, what I was carrying in my backpack. Someone asked me to deliver the box to a relative. Police officer arrested me and I had to spend 2 days in the prison. My holidays has turned into a nightmare. I was such fool and naïve for this world. I was arrested for smuggling and I had luck, because I wasn’t 18, I had escape punishment with deportation.
I learn – never trust people
