Itinerary Update

I have officially changed my flights to miss Sri Lanka due to the ending of the cease-fire and that many experts believe the civil war will only get worst.  I think it will work out for the best though.  The weather isn’t the greatest that time of year anyway.  Emirates Airlines didn’t charge me anything to change my flights AND to cut out Colombo.  I haven’t even flown with them and I already hold them in high regard.  Try doing that with an US-based airline.

It will be real easy to fill an extra month in South East Asia.  Bali… Borneo… Myanmar?  I think I’m going to wait until I arrive in Singapore and “go with the flow” so to speak.  But, I’m definitely open to suggestions.

I leave in less than 5 weeks when I jet off to Madrid for a couple nights and then dive head first into Morocco.  After that, I’ll meet a friend for cruising around the Greek Islands and then off to Turkey.

And I received the perfect fortune cookie today: “Your future in the next month looks bright.  Enjoy this time.”

    Hey Stacy!

    That’s too bad that you’re not going to visit Sri Lanka this time around, but your safety is more important!

    Have fun in Turkey! I’ll be there in October for two weeks with two my friends!

    Can’t wait to start reading about all your adventures.

    Hi Stacy,

    Such a shame you’re missing Sri Lanka, I’ve just returned to India from spending two months there, it’s an amazing place. If the trouble subsides you should consider changing your flight back. True, the trouble is mainly in the north and that there are isolated incidents in other areas, but the same goes for most Asian countries right now.

    The tourist levels dropped dramatically in the last few weeks of my stay, presumably in reaction to the news but having been there I can say it doesn’t feel like a dangerous place at all, especially along the south and west coasts (south of Colombo). I agree, things won’t be worked out by August but if you change your mind, you won’t be disappointed.

    Good luck with the planning, you’re in for an amazing ride, wherever you go.

    Ant
