Today is "Family Day" as decided last year by our very religious, read, right wing provincial government. Meh. The down side is we get no mail.
Anyway, here is a wee list of some good travel sites to get anyone in the mood for some serious travel/and the other fun part, the planning.
For me, one of the most exciting parts of a trip is searching for that great ticket.
The one that you can hardly believe you got, like the one I got to Iceland. It was an amazing ticket for a few reasons. 1) It was the cheapest of the 2 other companies I talked to 2) My travel agent specialized in Caribbean spots, not northern Europe,
3) To make everything that much sweeter, my travel agent gave me a voucher for 2 nights at a beautiful hostel, in the capital, and a shuttle bus from the airport to the capital all for free. It was pretty incredible to be honest, because between the hostel and the bus ride I would have spent well over $150, easy. 4) Lastly, he could see how the decision to go was gnawing at me so he said I could talk to a college of his who had been, I thought that was sweet, seeing as they really only focused on sunny vacations. I wasn't even planning on heading to Reykjavik initially. So, it was all so bountifully fortuitous, and the Universe provided me with courage, strength and an amazing trip!
