As just vented via social media, my travel agent has dropped the ball. I suppose I have as well.

I should have been more assertive in the situation and double checked those sticky, small print facts, but it’s looking like my ticket with Korean Air expires September 5th and it turns out that I cannot, as mentioned before, schedule my trip for December even if I book before the September expiration date.

I know it should have made less sense when exploring those options earlier but the thought of wearing multiple sweaters, seeing my best friends and family, and drinking hot apple cider deadened my common sense and I got lost in a mental Winter wonderland.

This question is  catfish noodling in a murky, dark pool but is there anyone out there who may have gotten around this by paying a fee, talking their way into a ticket change, anything?

I’m feeling defeated and the images of a Christmas in the Northwest are melting as quickly as an April snow.

Vacation Day 1. May 24, 2013.

A few quick photos from the first day of a semi working vacation with mi madre in Sihanoukville at Independence Hotel (swoosh!).
