Wanting Perfection + Airlines = Stress
I don’t typically get stressed. I typically get frustrated, then vent, then move on. Life’s too short to stress the small stuff and at the end of the day, it’s all small stuff in the grand scheme of things.
Why am I all of a sudden feeling stressed? Who the hells knows? I do know instead of the usual routine, I’m stressing about stupid stuff these days…
So, why am I stressed? I’m stressed because our trip to Borneo is coming up in May and the airfare has skyrocketed from $1700 pp to $6,500 pp. WTF??? I know there is plenty of time before I need to book it and the prices will likely come down, but what if they don’t? We have been planning and saving for this trip for 3 years. It’s frustrating to know that what was meant to be a “trip of a lifetime”, might turn into a trip that we’ll have to “settle” on.
What does “settle” mean? It means that instead of trekking in Borneo, we might end up trekking in Peru to Machu Picchu. Stupid right? Yes, it is.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m grateful to have the opportunity to travel at all and I don’t mean to sound like a spoiled, whiny brat but when something like this happens, it pisses me off. It’s something that we’ve worked hard for and now, it might not happen.
