Just cancelled Paris trip--I'm so bummed :(

Jump to last reply

I used to go to Paris twice a year (sometimes once and another country the other time). With winding down our work, finances are winding down, as well.

This year I planned to only go for two weeks in September, sharing an apartment with two friends, instead of the DH, which cuts costs considerably, of course. I've done this in the past and it's a wonderful way to spend time with friends, eat well, see everything, live comfortably and cut a lot of costs--I highly recommend it.

Tonight my primary fellow-traveler and I talked on the phone and I told her I had real concerns about airline fares--already too high--getting worse. Plus the euro to dollar is reaching $1.50. She agreed (the third will, for various reasons, have no problem giving the trip up), so we're canceling the apartment and I'll reimburse her my portion of the small down payment (which we won't have to pay if he rents it).

I've never canceled a trip before and I am so bummed. What started out with a feeling of "good for me, I've done something fiscally unselfish. I can deal." And now I just feel like I have nothing to look forward to. More than that, I don't have PARIS to look forward to.

We did agree to continue to watch flights and, if all the planets align and we catch a break we'll go on the spur of the moment, but we all know that's not likely.

I know there are terrible tragedies in the world and there are people struggling with the loss of their homes and families due to tornadoes right here in the U.S. This is a truly self-indulgent post. But this forum IS for travel-related discussions, so I'm seeking out like-minded people and I hope that's understood and taken in the right spirit.

Have you cancelled a trip? How did you pull yourself out of the funk?
