One month ago, we would have departed SYD on QF first class EK redemption to Zagreb, Croatia. With a cousin along for this part of the trip to visit the birthplaces of parents & grandparents. Minus cousin, then on to France and the Canal du Midi, finishing up with some quality time around Epernay
Landing today after final legs CDG-DOH-SYD, first time in Qatar QSuites.
Oh well, at least we (eventually) got full refunds for QF points, cousin's EK paid ticket and our QR paid flights.
I would have been on my honeymoon visiting England & Italy. Domino's pizza just doesn't taste the same.
But it's OK as we will delay the trip by 2 years to make it bigger and better and in conjunction with a significant birthday too.
I would be somewhere here
in Belarus right now, preparing to return to Minsk and catch the flights that would bring me home - and to my first taste of status with any airline.
Now who knows if that airline will be worth having status with when it re-emerges, and the virus (the very one that Mr Lukashenko pronounced to be a "psychosis" roundabout the time he was expounding the anti-viral properties of vodka and tractors) has me travelling to local watering holes instead. My region has gotten a raw deal with bushfires and then restrictions so I should be doing my part here, but I kind of miss... the naps in the terminal during long layovers, flooded third class train bathrooms, the constant where'd I put my passport again? and of course the thrill of being immersed in another culture.
I was due to be starting a tour of the Kamchatka Peninsula today. Instead, the refund for all but the $2K deposit that I've rolled to next year's tourlobbed into my bank overnight. Happy to get the refund; unhappy to not be there...
Should be in Port Douglas for the next week. 12 weeks since I cancelled, still no travel credit appearing. 6 phone calls made in April/May being told different times when it would appear, probably need to give them another call tomorrow.
I would been spending one final day in Helsinki after 5+ weeks travelling around Scandinavia and Thew Baltics, borading a J Qatar flight to Doha just before midnight, then connecting to a Qsuites flight to Singapore.
Instead my only travel today was an uber to the optomitrist to pick up new reading glasses.
I would have arrived in Kuala Lumpur earlier this week. Tomorrow would have been catching a flight to Kuching and an excursion into the Borneo jungle to see monkeys. Makes me quite depressed sitting in my lounge room watching life just pass me by.
