Ireland, here I come!
Hello, everyone! I'm officially packed and ready to leave on my dream trip around the world tomorrow morning. For anyone who's curious, I booked all of my flights on kayak.com, and found through my own experience, and from speaking to other frequent fliers, that this site truly does find the best deals.
My flight from Toronto, Ontario (YYZ) to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) leaves tomorrow morning at 10:01 am from the Toronto International Airport. At 10:42, we're scheduled for a layover in Chicago, Illinois (ORD), and will have some time to sight-see around Chicago, because the connecting flight to Dublin, Ireland doesn't leave until 6:45 pm that evening. I will then arrive in Ireland at 8:15 am, seven and a half hours later. The ticket to fly from Toronto to Ireland cost me $911, and I'll be flying with Aer Lingus.
Although it's needless to say, I must admit that I'm slightly apprehensive about travelling around the world on my own. I'm preparing myself to run into small problems such as navigation, language barriers, and whatever else life decides to throw at me while I'm on this trip. Regardless, I've never been more excited to embark upon what I'm sure will be quite the adventure! I'll be sure to frequently update my blog so you can all keep up with my travels! Expect postcards, guys! :D
