Well we have already had our first travel mishap and we havent even left yet! Apparently it was not 16 days and counting at my last post, it should have been 15 days and counting! Yup thats right, we missed our first set of flights by a whole day!
After an emergency phone call to Westet at 4:45 am yesterday morning, we waited a painful 12 1/2 hours to hear back from them regarding our options. With the help of our travel agent and a few others at Westjet Vacations and a whole day of rebooking 3 flights and two weeks at the hotel , we are back on track and leaving tonight! Only having to pay fees to have the flights switched for $150. I can't believe how accomodating Westjet was and we will praise that airline for many years to come!!
We have both promised each other to never miss a flight again and to always triple check our flight times!!
On another positive note, these extra two days have given us that extra time we needed to finish everything up and now instead of leaving rushed and feeling like we have forgotten something, we are 100% ready and waiting for our time to leave for the airport!
Thanks to our families yesterday for sending hopeful thoughts that everything would work out! Because it definitely did!
We are leaving at 8 tonight and should arrive in Punta Cana tomorrow afternoon if all goes according to plan!
Bye for now!
