So, today’s my birthday and that means it’s time for the (semi-regular) annual booking of the flights for my upcoming trip.
My original plan to just go to Central America involved only one flight to book ahead of my trip which was a flight into Mexico.
I actually booked that flight a month ago on Black Friday cause, well, cheap flight yo!
I did hem and haw whether I should just wait for my birthday to book it cause of my (semi-regular) tradition but it was $50 cheaper and I thought a better birthday present for me was 50 bucks in my pocket.
Of course, now that I’ve decided to morph my trip into a trip to Europe instead, I now have plenty of flights to book.
So, me being me, I waited as the clock ticked down to midnight last night and at exactly 12:01 I hit the internet.
In all, I booked 7 flights last night.
Where I’m going
I’ve given myself two weeks in Mexico to explore Mexico City, Oaxaca and San Cristóbal de las Casas before I fly to Cuba on Valentines day.
After another two weeks in Cuba I head over to Europe where I’ll visit Oslo, Norway for the afternoon before flying out to London in the late evening.
From there, it’s two weeks in England and then a ferry to Ireland on, wait for it…
Yup, I’ll be in Dublin for St Paddy’s day!
Two weeks in Ireland leads into another two weeks in Scotland before I fly out on the last flight I booked to Romania.
From Romania I’ll travel overland to Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo.
While I’m there I’ll figure out a cheap way to get up to Paris and depending on time I’ll either fly home or explore other countries in the area like Belgium, Netherlands and Germany.
In total, all 8 tickets cost me $1134CDN which is about $850US (damn, the Canadian dollar has tanked the last few years, eh?)
Considering the distance I’m flying I think that’s a pretty good price.
Anyway, they’ve been booked and they’re non-refundable so no turning back now – Euro Trip 2017, here I come…
