  Trip Cancelled...

Well sad news today... Earlier today (Wednesday) we got word that we could go ahead and rebook another trip through Sunquest, our Travel Agent recommended 2 properties, the Sol Palmeras in Veradero, Cuba, and a second choice the Holiday Inn Seabreeze in Jamaica.

After checking them out and verifying some details, we decided at about 5:30pm to go ahead and book at the Sol Palmeras... We get a call back a few minutes later, that it will actually be an extra $400, ouch, but Ok, whatever, let's just get it done... So we break the news to the kids, they're disappointed not to be going to the place with the water slides, etc, but we start showing them pictures of Cuba and trying to get them excited and they start coming around... Then, we get a call back at about 7:00pm, no go, prices have gone up even more, the place is booked, yadda yadda yadda...

So unfortunately we've had to take the option to cancel... Our Travel Agent (from www.iTravel2000.com ) is off tomorrow, so Friday we'll re-evaluate our options... We have fewer than most as we're travelling with the 3 boys and MANY, actually MOST resorts only offer rooms with a Max capacity of 3 adults or 2 adults + 2 children... Still no official word from the Crown Paradise as to when they'll re-open, but once December rolls around prices are much higher, so either we get lucky and find something suitable for November departure, or we'll be forced to push back our Holiday to February timeframe...

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
