I was so waiting to hear where the old trip was and where the new trip is going to be...would have been interesting to know exactly what it was about the new trip that's so much better than the old one. And perhaps would have helped some of us to understand even more why you were so set on cancelling your original plans despite the headache(s) and financial risks in doing so.


Anyhow...I get it.


Go with your gut on these things...I was deciding between the Caribbean and Kauai months ago and literally all my friends said go to the Caribbean. I couldn't have been happier that I ended up choosing Kauai. Enjoy!
Thanks! Yes, I'm feeling a lot better since I didn't have to lose my deposit. If I had known that I would find a buyer so quickly, I wouldn't have even made the thread! But regarding the trips, it wasn't really about one destination being so much better than the other, but moreso the activities I had planned. I'm just no longer interested in doing the activities for the trip that I canceled. The other trip that I'm taking is one that I've taken several times before so I know I'll enjoy it, and it's just more convenient for me to go there. Finally, I've developed new interests unrelated to both trips that I'm really passionate about, so I wanted to make sure I'd have the time and money available to pursue those things in the near future, and I thought the canceled trip might get in the way of that.

I would rather not gift it to anyone and I'm happy to report that my buyer came through and the reservation has been sold. Whew! That was a close call! Thanks everyone!
You're being private because strangers on the internet can hunt you down if you the Caribbean or Hawaii or Africa? Odd.

Why is the back of my brain whispering Bangkok for child prostitutes or she-he's.

Hmm, maybe the OP's member name has something to do with those whispers.

You've got quite the imagination there, but no.

Maybe. But i can't think of any other logical reason for your "privacy" on an anonymous forum.

I agree. If, for instance, they were going to Jamaica, they could have said The Caribbean, for instance, to keep it vague. I only asked out of curiosity wondering what the old trip vs. the new trip was and why it was better in the OPs mind.

I have an upcoming trip to a part of the northern hemisphere of Earth, can't wait!
