Eventually, we decided to book it.
When we arrive back in Seattle from our trip to Korea at the end of October, the plan is to make our way down to Mexico. Preferably the Puerto Escondido area, which would mean flying into Mexico City to connect.
This deal would have totally switched things up. It was return flights from Mexico City to Buenos Aries, Argentina. Cost was $358 USD each. We decided we would go for almost two months, from mid November to mid January exploring Argentina. What a great deal!
As I've said before, the great deals don't last long. Sometimes only a few hours, and sometimes a couple of days...which is why you have to act fast. I went to book it, and checked the price again on the carrier's website. It was through AeroMexico. I decided I would book it through expedia and get Air Miles. But I couldn't get it to bring it up, which was strange. I tried a few different dates, and nope...it wasn't there at that price. So I went back to the carrier's website to book it...and it was now $850 per person!
This deal had been on since Friday morning and I hadn't seen it on Friday. By the time we saw it and made a decision...it was too late. We literally missed it by minutes!
I wasn't actively looking for a deal, which is why we procrastinated a bit. Had this been something I was looking for, we wouldn't have had to think about it and would have booked it right away. You snooze, you lose!
And so, it wasn't meant to be. As Ruth says, another deal will come along and who knows where we'll end up. Maybe the next deal will be even better!
Yesterday was another mixed day, with showers and sunny breaks. We wanted to go for a hike in the hills with Esther and Steve, but every time we got to the point of heading out, it would start to rain! We eventually decided to just go for it, and for the most part enjoyed a couple of hours out hiking.
Things are really starting to get green from all the rain we had last week.
You can walk these hills for miles. The trees are where the park is.
There is a tourist "dude ranch" on the opposite side of the river, and I zoomed in on these folks doing a cattle drive.
Bet you didn't know Saskatchewan was this pretty.

Steve and Esther and their motorhome.
They have the perfect size unit for RV'ing in Mexico! Really great interior floorplan as well. Very different, with a fold down "murphy bed" in the living area, and a spacious rear bathroom. Excellent use of space in a 24 ft motorhome!
Our header photo from the month of April 2009 has us driving north through the U.S. where we enjoyed the scenic Natchez Trace parkway...
