You know how Tuesdays, in Twitterland, are Travel Tuesday? Well, for me, Wednesday is really the special day. It is on Wednesday that I receive all my weekly travel updates – deals on airfare, hotels, rental cars, and attractions.
Due to the limited time off I can take working this 9-5, I rarely get to take advantage of the mouth-watering deals. And really, there are often so many constraints, black-out dates, time limits, etc, that it makes most deals not really deals at all.
When TravelZoo told me on Wednesday, though, that Mexicana Airlines was offering fares from Chicago to Bogota for $264, I immediately jumped on it. I sent emails my “travel buddies”, and within 24 hours we had bought tickets to Bogota for that advertised price of $264, round trip, including all taxes. Wow!
We’ll be making this trek over Thanksgiving, and I can’t wait! I’m going next week to register for a refresher course in Spanish over the summer, and hopefully after that I’m going to look into online tutoring through SpeakShop.
I’ll keep you posted on what we’re going to do and see! And of course, I will post pictures!
