indeed, indeed

So, speaking of best-laid plans: we did not take that trip to Myanmar after all. Abdominal pain a week before departure led to an emergency room visit, half a dozen tests, a diagnosis, and surgery, which in turn led to a month-long travel veto. And so it goes.

But: people! Please travel insured! We had not only flights to cancel this time, but several accommodation bookings, and that prepaid boat trip down the Irrawaddy too. We had gone for the "free cancellation" option with all of our Agoda reservations, but the timing meant some costs, and those were covered by our insurance, as were all annulled transportation costs. Having to cancel a holiday two days before you fly is distressing enough without losing vast amounts of money because of it.

We waited until I was well and truly healed, and then we consoled ourselves with a wonderful week in Lisbon.

And it was good.

  1. I agree, it's always so distressing to cancel a trip in the last min but I'm glad you are well and that you had the chance to go to Lisbon instead:) xoxo
