When Travel Dreams Fade – The Eclipse That Wouldn’t Wait

Hi, I’m Sara, founder and writer at Travel Continuum, where I write about my global travel experiences, with a special passion for the stars and sustainability. I believe in the power of education through travel, and here I share the tales and tips that I find interesting and inspiring. I hope that you do too.

Something that keeps going, changing gradually over time…like the seasons.

    How frustrating! Sometimes all these things align (eclipse pun not intended!) and things just don’t seem to want to work out. Good luck for the next one though – hope it all comes together. I missed out on a trip to Sri Lanka on my round-the-world trip as there was a lot of trouble there at the time but still hope to make it there one day.

      Thanks Lucy, me too. I suppose civil and/or political unrest is a regular cause of postponed trips – am sure another chance to visit Sri Lanka will come up though 🙂

  2. It’s been hard as your friend to watch you go through all these trials and I felt gutted for you that you could no longer go as I know what it meant to you. So now I’m wondering, how much would a trip like this cost? Now there’s a thought! Remember I’m thinking of you.

    • Sara Dobak says:

      You’re one of the few people who really appreciated how much it meant. The USA trip would have cost up to £4K for the full Route 66 combo – or between £2-3K for a reduced version. Chile costs are MUCH lower (although flights likely to be pricier) – but DEFINITELY a thought!! 😉

    Crossed fingers for Chile. And as for the thyroid, I had that too and had the whole thing removed ten years ago. Best thing I did, it was making me ill. You did the right thing!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      Thanks Anna – I had no idea you’d experienced that. I’m finding many people saying something similar. I had no thyroid issues at all, my main hope now is that the cyst they removed is benign – then it’s onwards and upwards!

  4. I do hope the planets align for you in July 2019. In the meantime hope you’re soon back to full fitness. The ash cloud put paid to a trip to Venice for me with a stay at the Cipriani and return home on the Simplon Orient Express train. D’oh.

      Thanks Suzanne – me too! And I hope you got your chance at Venice/Orient Express…or that you will soon!
