Thought for the day..”You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.”
“Words are often seen hunting for an idea, but ideas are never seen hunting for words.”
Just had an email from an online travel agency trying to encourage me to book some cheap HOLIDAY flights. The prices were very good and the destinations interesting….Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Entebbe (Uganda), Nairobi (Kenya) etc. Stress the word ‘holiday’ for these flights. But when you read the details, the flights arrive at around 0200 or 0300, returning at around 0300 or 0400. Now on holiday, I like to enjoy normal sleep, so these cheap flights would ruin at least 2 nights sleep. Arriving at 0200 in a foreign country (especially a place like Nairobi or Johannesburg) is not only no fun, but also dangerous too. And the thought of a departure around 0300 or 0400 means another ruined night. All of this for a HOLIDAY, which is supposed to be a time to relax and enjoy. So this time, I will pass over these cheap offers….life is too short to have this sort of cruelty on holiday. And the good thing….holidays are optional, so I can choose better flight timings. Many birds do not fly at night, and for good reasons. I like my sleep too ! And I like to enjoy my holidays too. Good luck to those who choose these cheap offers…..arriving into somewhere like Nairobi (sometimes called ‘Nai-Robbery) at 0200 then they are going to need it.
