Well, as of last night, it’s official. We are going to the Philippines on December 8 for 2 weeks. We booked the flights, bought the tickets, and shelled out $2800 in hopes that we’ll get enough financial support coming in to be reimbursed for it from MTW.
Thankfully, though, Nate was able to get a great deal on the tickets and saved us over $1000 on them! Instead of $4000, we spent less than $3000. Not bad.
Looking at the itinerary, it looks like we’ve got 22+ hours travel time on the way there, and 23+ hours on the way back. Aren’t you all jealous that we’ll be sitting on an airplane for that long? I know you want to go along.
