    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!
