Backpacking Through Europe | Dente Complete Dentistry

Backpacking Through Europe

Immediately upon graduating from undergrad, I went backpacking through Europe for a couple of months.

I was traveling with 2 other guys.

One of the places that we went to was Munich. It was a great city and the people were amazing.

Munich had just won the European championship and the city was partying and so were we.

We had bought train tickets to go to Prague and needed to get to the train station in about 5 minutes. We were running down the streets of Munich and finally got to the train station. The train was pulling away and we were running along the side of the train and jumped on. It was just like the movies.

The train was completely packed and we found some of the last seats on the train. We had a long day and crashed out immediately.

About a half hour later, the train conductor came and checked everyone’s tickets. When he looked at ours, he began yelling in German and began pointing to the other train cars. He was telling us to move and change train cars.

I was able to wake up one of my friends, but was unable to wake up our friend Ed. He was completely passed out.

We moved to the other train car and left Ed. Our plan was to get some sleep, come back later and get him once he slept off some of his drunkenness.When I woke up and walked over to his train car, his train car was completely gone. There were no other cars, just tracks. At one of the stops, half of the train got split so that half of the train went to Hamburg and the other half went to Prague.

Remember this was 1993 and cell phones were not that common.

We had lost our friend and had no plan in place as to what to do if we got separated.

For the remainder of the trip, Ed traveled by himself and we were wondering if he was ok.

This reminds me, that having a good plan in place, is essential in dentistry. It is necessary in order to get the best results, in the most efficient time.

Every case has bumps in the road but having a well thought out plan minimizes the surprises.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Check Your Ticket” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
