A Sydney pre-teen who had an argument with his parents successfully made it to Bali for a mini-break – without telling a single adult.
A Current Affair reports 12-year-old Drew, from Sydney stole his mum’s credit-card, duped his grandmother into handing over his passport and then organised a secret week away in Bali.
He then told his parents he was heading to school – and then used his scooter to get to the train station (!!!) went to the airport instead.
He used self check-in to avoid dealing with staff at airports. Actual genius.
The youngster made it to Bali – checking into the hotel, telling staff his older sister would be arriving later.
“There’s no emotion to feel what we felt when we found out that he’d left overseas,” his, no-doubt distraught, mother Emma told the show.
The mum admitted her 12-year-old “just doesn’t like the word no”.
“That’s what I got, a kid in Indonesia,” she said.
Emma successfully travelled to Bali to collect her son.
But while his parents were upset, Drew seemed pretty happy with the whole thing: “it was great because I wanted to go on an adventure.”
