Travel Woes…

Today was supposed to be my flight to London but I woke up feeling ill.  I have been thoroughly exhausted at work, feeling run down, and I think the stress has caught up with me.  I just called Virgin Atlantic to inquire about my travel woes and although I didn’t mind the $300 change fee, I DID mind the $400 “no show” fee.  The woman on the phone said that I would be considered a “no show” even though I am calling them to tell them that I can’t make the flight.  She insisted that I must rebook my flight TODAY.  But how could I rearrange my travel when I just woke up feeling sick and all I want to do is go back to bed?  This got me angry so I couldn’t go back to bed.  I called my credit card company, Chase Sapphire,  to help me argue with the $100 difference of the $300 change fee vs. the $400 “no show” fee.  At this point it wasn’t about the money;  it was about the principle.  I, apparently, have some sort of travel insurance on my Visa card that could possibly give me a refund!  I initiated a claim so we’ll see what happens.

I have never missed a flight (except for a connecting flight that took off early from Miami to Barcelona. Ugh!) But now that I’m off from work, what am I going to do with myself?  I always thought a “staycation” was lame, especially since I’ve been afflicted with WanderLust for the past three years.  Maybe this is a sign for me to slow down.  I feel like I’m always running.  Is WanderLust just a way of running away from my problems?  I have a headache and it’s only 10 a.m.  I will go back to bed now and when I wake up, I hope to have some clarity.
