Reflections On The Journey

Monday Meditation – Travel Woes - 5/22/2023
My husband and I just finished a long-awaited cruise to visit Ireland. Our trip included flights to Europe and nine days on the cruise ship with seven stops around the island.
But our trip did not turn out the way we planned. Our flight across the pond to start our trip was first delayed by a few hours, then delayed by another 4 hours, delayed again and finally the flight was cancelled completely. We were stuck without a flight, and we would now miss the embarkation onto our cruise.
Thankfully our travel agent helped us through the mess. Due to the configuration of the cruise, it would now be four days before we had an opportunity to board the ship. We were able to get rebooked onto another combination of flights that would get us to that port before the ship arrived there (plus a hotel stay overnight), but we were now missing several days of our vacation. We are documenting everything that happened and all of our added expenses and losses.
If you ever plan a big trip, especially one involving an international destination, please be sure to purchase trip insurance – it’s well worth the money. This can cover expenses you incur for delayed flights, illnesses and more (depending on your policy.) Trip insurance is a standard purchase for us for all big trips now, as we know that things can happen to ruin part or all of your trip. There also are other agencies that can help you get reimbursement for air travel delays, like Airhelp.com.
Travelling is a wonderful way to enjoy God’s creation. The natural wonders, the cultures, the scenery and the food we experienced so far in our travels were incredible! My faith has been enhanced seeing the beauty and diversity God has created in our world. I hope you are able to be blessed by doing some kind of travelling - but be sure to get trip insurance!
Have a blessed Monday!
