This is my blog & my hope, writing daily will help me see my progress and log supporters.
|Every up has a down...every in has an out.
The airline, or the travel agent I booked through, emailed me today, and my flight to Thailand in three weeks has been cancelled. That's it...I have fought for this trip, and I have paid the price of wanting an overseas holiday, but now I can't fight anymore.
So, after I picked my dummy up off the floor, I realised that it ain't the end of the world and that another closer option was available. The Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing that can be seen with the naked eye from space...but, seen from underneath the water, it is spectacular, and that's where I am now going. Cairns, Kuranda, Port Douglas, the Daintree River and, of course, the reef is a pretty special consolation prize.
I don't care what it takes...I need and deserve this holiday.
