Time flies; we hope to.
Purchased our tickets for South America this morning.
Seems like just a blink since sending off the initial inquiry about ticket packages.
That was February. This is July.
Many ping-ponging emails later (including helpful hand-holding replies from our incredibly kind agent, several late night discussions, a few quiet months weathering bumps in the road, and a release of hard-earned, well-saved dollars), we punched the purchase button this morning.
Since we’re leaving the continent by ship, we chose not to include South America in our potential Round The World ticket. Too many stipulations regarding required transatlantic flights. And too many north/south miles that we’d rather use on eastern travels.
So, now we know: Farewell to Portland on January 5th, 2012.
Coffee in the concourse?
After all the sacrifice to get to that boarding gate, it’ll be time to splurge.
For now, five and a half more months of earning, saving, praying, and planning.
