Ok I know it is boring NOT reading about our big trip, but part of the fun is waiting and getting ready!
So here it is Christmas Eve and -21C/-6F in Alberta, and it is 28C/82F in Arusha. Even with a storm pending in Arusha it HAS to be better then -21C, so here I sit dreaming of our trip!
We have all our shots now, well Landon needs a second flu shot for some reason, and he is THRILLED about that! (I hope you didn't miss the sarcasm in that) We go to the Dr's on the 29th to get our Malaria pills. We made our final payment on the trip a month ago, so now all we have to do is wait! I am sure the time will fly by.
Oh I never posted about our near catastrophe last month regarding our trip. Chris and I were going over some things when Chris noticed a funny date on our air line itinerary. Some how since we booked our tickets, the flight to Nairobi got cancelled and we were bumped to fly the next day and I never noticed. (I guess Orbitz did send me an email, but I missed that important detail. They never said what the change was, just that it changed and the only thing both my mom and I noticed was the one flight would arrive 10 min early. We missed the fact it was a whole day later!) So as it was we would have been in Nairobi a whole day after we should have been, cutting our safari a day short, not to mention missing our connection from Nairobi to Arusha! So after 6 hours on hold, on and off, with Orbitz, we were able to sort it out. We are now flying out a day early, so will have an extra day in Africa instead of a day short. I am sooooooo glad Chris caught that before we were standing infront of the gate in Heathrow 24hours early!
Well that is all I have for you know, the adventure continues!
