I Wish I Was Flying Today P5300880

As I type this, Graham and I should be sitting in a plane on our way to Africa. We had an amazing six week adventure organised. Hopefully when things settle down and international travel can be undertaken safely we will be able to plan a new trip.
Oh no! Hope you can reschedule soon. I hope you didn’t lose a lot of money (like my neighbours have)

Wow! What a gorgeous capture. So sorry to hear about your cancelled travel plans... that trip sounds like it would have been truly amazing. Fingers crossed that you can get it rescheduled soon.

beautiful pelicans and how disappointing about your big adventure!

@narayani We stand to lose a bit but have put in an insurance claim to see happens. We took out an annual policy which was activated in July last year and booked Africa because we already had travel insurance. We've copped some hefty cancellation fees for internal flights and our travel agent is still trying get refunds for some of our accomodation. South African Airways will give us a flight voucher valid until March 2022 . Africa over Summer wouldn't be a good idea so we'd have to look at travelling in Spring next year - if we can, if it's safe to do so and if SAA is still flying.

Love the photo. I hope your trip will be able to go ahead some time soon. Our family holiday to Europe was cancelled last month and the last of our plane trips would have started today. Let's hope things settle down and everyone can travel abroad again some time soon.

Lovely photo but so sorry you had to cancel your trip. We have just postponed our Namibian/South African trip for July/August and hope to reschedule for next year - you never know, we may cross paths!!

Amazing capture and sight! I still have your dates in my diary Merrelyn, so sad that covid put a stop to that. I hope you are aware that SAA is bankrupt. Hope you manage to get sorted out without too big a loss. Spring would be a good option :-)

@ludwigsdiana Yes, I fear that our vouchers will be worthless and I don't know if we'll get any joy with our travel insurance. Even if SAA survive there is talk of them cancelling the Perth - Joburg route.

Excellent. Great focus.
May 30th, 2020  
@judithdeacon Now that could be fun :)
May 30th, 2020  
Super capture...So many plans & trips cancelled...a season I never thought to experience..All the best with your insurance & plans

Wonderful capture

@ludwigsdiana @merrelyn 365 get together in Paarl??
May 30th, 2020  
@judithdeacon What a treat that would be :))

hope you get your dreams for this trip soon

Great capture of the flying birds.
(No. it`s for the bee keeper also)

Great shot. How disappointing, I do hope you get some sort of refund. I suspect there will be too many claims at the moment though and not enough money to go around.

Wow these birds look cool, I've never seen this type before.
May 31st, 2020  
Oh, ouch. How hugely disappointing

I love this image and can totally relate. We were supposed to be on our 'trip of a lifetime' to Patagonia in March. Who knows now if we'll ever make it there. Wishing you have the opportunity sometime in the future!

Great shot Have a wonderful time in Africa-fabulous place

Great capture to explain the disappointment with holiday flight plans. Hope you get something out of all this but I know it's so difficult for everyone who had holidays booked.
May 31st, 2020  
Great capture. It is very disappointing not to be going on your amazing adventure, but you will get there when it's safe to go. Fav

Hope you can take your travel soon - fantastic shot!
