    Is that an idiomatic expression for English speakers or a literal translation?

    The meaning in Spanish of "Ver burro y antojársele a uno viaje" is to take advantage of the situation.

    That's a literal translation.

    The nearest I can think of is "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade" This also means take advantage of the situation but the sense is somewhat different. It means no matter what life brings, we must always do our best with what we have at our disposal.
