Sorry I didn't blog yesterday, Sinuses have been bothering me.
I got some cheap plane tickets yesterday, 50% off which is great. I guess that what I've read about buying tickets (for some airlines and not international) was correct, you wait 3-4 months before flight and that's when the awesome seatsales go on! Some airlines, like Cathay Pacific, which I flew to NYC, have a steady price, but which is fairly reasonable. Others, like Westjet start off more, but with a seatsale are close to what airlines like Cathay Pacific regularly charge.
Tricky game purchasing plane tickets...the one to Costa Rica via Continental, went up over time, and I ended up paying $100 more because I waited a bit. I still purchased that one 6 or so months in advance so I still got a good deal on that.
Now I must get Cirque Du Soleil tickets (Regina),.
