Getting our tickets

I spent my whole day thinking about the upcoming trip...I can't believe that we will be in the Ukraine in less than three weeks. I was keeping myself under control until I went to bed just before eleven. For some reason, I felt a small wave of anxiety and began thinking about the trip. I decided the best way to address this was to get out of bed and book out tickets.

When I went to bed at about 12:30 am I felt much better. It is amazing what 90 minutes on the internet and telephone can do to calm a person. I decided that I needed to speak to someone from the airline by telephone. While I have been in the habit of booking tickets online, I felt this trip was too important to do without direct person-to-person contact.

We are leaving on Friday, December 8th from Winnipeg, flying through Munich and then on to Kiev. We will be travelling Air Canada and Lufthansa there and back.
