Bad Blogger!

Sunday, July 20, 2008

I have been very disrespectful of my duties as a blogger it seems. So sorry for that.

Of course, that doesn't mean that I haven't been reading all of your blogs, I just can't seem to keep caught up on my own.

I still haven't booked either of my flights (Calg - Hamilton and Toronto - London), as I'm still hoping for some sort of sale. However, as I do know myself, I have come up with a list of minimum requirements for me to buy a plane ticket. As I check places like Flight Centre and Expedia constantly, I know that prices change daily, if not hourly. When I do see a good deal, I tend to sit back and think "Well, what happens if there is a BETTER one tomorrow!" and pass on it, when really, I should've just purchased it.

So, here are my three minimum requirements for me to jump on a good deal:
1) The flight is under $600 for one-way
2) The seat width on the airplane is a minimum of 18" (and I'm not just trying to be a brat about this one.... I just can't fit comfortably in a smaller seat!)
3) No stopovers! (I don't want anyone losing my luggage again!)

I'm still checking daily, and hopefully will see a good one pop up soon!

I have some exciting news to share regarding those red progess bars on the right, but I will save that news until everyting clears. Hee hee.

My grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, and their two children, ages 4 and 8, are staying at my house for the summer. It's very hectic, but my youngest cousin drew me a picture today, and while I may be skipping rope with my hair and wearing a very ugly bright pink dress, it does make up for all the times they scream and yell.

I have a lot of things on my to-do list, and with summer quickly running away, I fear that the lasat couple weeks before I leave are going to be hectic. Very hectic, indeed.

Sorry for such a quick post, I just feel so bad everytime I look at this blog sitting all sad and empty!

Oh, and I'll also do the breakdown of the Seattle trip, in case anyone is hanging on the edge of their seat for that one. Hah.

No worries. When things get a little crazy I take a break from blogging as well. Good luck on finding a flight.

Remember if you decide on a Westjet flight, click through from Great Canadian Rebates and you'll get some money back.

I know what you mean. I just booked a flight going only one and a half states over and it cost $500!!

But you are better booking now since the price is just going to go UP UP AND AWAY!!

I don't think the airlines are going to have any great sales anytime soon. All I keep hearing is prices going up and extra charges for checking a bag!

We scored on our one-way flight to Europe... was selling Portland, Oregon to Sofia, Bulgaria for $421 (plus insurance and fees, of course). We had one stop in Frankfurt, but that was because there aren't many (any?) one-ways to Sofia from the States. Hope you find/found a good fare!
