I am traveling from Cancun to Vancouver later this week. My fare is $325.00 USD – that’s return, including taxes. I will fly from Cancun at 7:00 am – Miami – Dallas – Vancouver, arriving at 7:00 pm.
I am taking a small bag on board with me; I don’t want to risk losing my luggage. And, hey, how much stuff do I need for a week? 4 changes of under-things, 4 tops, 2 prs. of slacks, PJs, vitamins, makeup, a comb, toothbrush, and… ah yes, my computer. It’s fall up north so I’ll carry my leather jacket and a scarf.
I plan to give my novel one more read-through during my 12 hours of travel. The manuscript can then go to the editor (again) I’ll take my sketch pad and pencils to spell myself off when I get tired of reading. I’ll also have my i-pod with lots of music programmed in. The time will pass by quickly.
For years I had to fly from Mérida at 6:20 am – Mexico City – Los Angeles – Vancouver, arriving at 6:00 pm, for about $1,200.00. I always had a least one little child with me, (another half fare) who needed feeding, entertaining… and yes… changing. I would have my luggage and the kids’ to keep track of.
I don’t feel very hard done by at all. In fact, I am feeling very good about my online booking experience. I’ll definitely do this again.
