OMG, I bought the ticket

Nov 03, 2010 1 Comment by

So now it’s real! I’ve bought the plane ticket to take me to New Zealand. Leaves November 23rd, arrives of course 2 days later NZ. I decided not to go for a round-the-world ticket as I wanted to be as flexible in my destinations. But I will repeat what I read over and over, not having a strict time schedule allowed me to get the best deal.

PS. I will not vomit. This is my new excited/terrified mantra.

I had resigned myself to the fact that my ticket would be somewhere around $1300. It varied slightly depending on the day or week but was fairly steady. Not looking forward to it, which is I suppose why I put it off for so long! Hard to look at my bank account and know I would lose an automatic grand off the top. Due to certain circumstances here, i.e. totalling my car, my plans were slightly shifted back a few weeks. But the fantastic part was that when I started looking again, the week of Thanksgiving was amazingly on sale. I got my ticket for $800! After taxes! Woot!

Now of course comes the hard planning.  I’ve got 3 weeks, time to start nailing it down!
