So when they told me that I couldn’t leave the country until my UK Visa was processed, I panicked. That’s 6-8 weeks of being immobile. I’m not even allowed to visit the US, which is just a hop, skip and a jump over the border. I guess when you’re the kind of person that isn’t used to being in one place for extended periods of time and enjoys their freedom, this confinement doesn’t bode well.
I actually DID have a trip planned to Thailand in early November. I will now have to reschedule. Boo. However, I did get a great tip today. British Airways give you a free stop to London when you book with them. So if I buy a one way plane ticket to Bangkok (via London), I would be able to get a ticket back to London free of charge. I could potentially combine my two trips into 1. Fly to Bangkok and then straight to London to stay. That would mean that I would have to drag a years worth of stuff with me to Bangkok when I was just planning on bringing a carry on backpack. Hmm. Decisions.
Do any of you know where I could find cheap tickets to Bangkok from Toronto? I’ve gotten it down to $1200 (with tax), but my goal is to get $1,000. It will be my last hurrah before I make the move up to London.
