Finial Itinerary…

OK, it’s official, the tickets have been bought and confirmed. Looks like I’m going to have a bit of an adventure just getting there. Turns out that I have cut out one leg of the trip. Originally I was supposed to go from DC to NYC, to Germany, to Dubai, and then Yemen. I managed to cut out the whole Germany connection and save a bit of money too. I have longer layovers though. 12 hours in Dubai and 36 hours in NYC. Turns out that I’ll get to see NYC before I go overseas after all! The plane arrives at JFK at 8:30ish in the morning. I don’t leave until 11pm the next day. Maybe I’ll hook up with my stepsister Coleman or some of my other friends up there. I’ll be in Dubai from about 8:30 pm till 7:30 AM the next day. Once again, gotta be something I can do instead of hanging out at the airport.

A little airport purgatory is well worth the savings I got on these tickets. I can stay over there for an extra month with the money I saved, not a bad trade off eh? BTW, Economy Travel has about the best prices on international flights that I can find. Well worth checking out.

Well, umm, err.. I didn’t actually notice the overnight part until after I had already bought the ticket. I must have just glazed right over the date while looking at the times. Turns out I could have left a day later and still have made the rest of the flight with no problem. Stupid mistake, but what the hell, it’ll be fun to see NYC… I had actually thought about being driven or taking the train up instead of flying, but the whole mounds of luggage thing kept getting in the way. I really didn’t want to lug a year’s worth of luggage on the train and then from Penn station to JFK. The flight will be 30 bucks more than the train, well worth it in my mind. If I’m lucky I can crash at my stepsister’s place. I could brave sleeping n the terminal, I certainly won’t be the first to do that. If I can find a cheapish hotel room near the airport, I might do that.. Hmmm, both my brother and my stepsister work for hotels, maybe they can hook me up….
