Dreamers Journeys is officially on hold.
As we were leaving Lima on Tuesday we hit a bird that made a huge impact on the present situation.
This bird, must have been an Andean Condor because it cracked the whole windshield of the plane during takeoff and left a red mess behind on the nose of the plane.
We then had to turn back and land in Lima for safety.
This delayed us 4 hours.
We missed our connecting flight to Costa Rica and the airline covered one night of accommodation in Miami and we changed our flight to the next day.
Spent a great night around the buffet table and slot machines.
Today we boarded our flight to Costa Rica and when we arrived we didn’t make it passed immigration because we didn’t have our yellow fever vaccination.
Now, we did do our research about this before travelling in Peru the yellow fever vaccination is recommended but not required.
It is not required in Costa Rica either, however, if you are traveling from Peru to Costa Rica it is mandatory and you have to prove so with documentation, which we did not have.
There was no way around it, we were directed back into a flight to Miami quicker than we could process what was even happening.
This was the airlines responsibility to check this before we even boarded. But with the bird commotion a lot was forgotten…
We’re still in Miami airport, waiting for our flights home to Toronto (me) and San Fransisco (Sergio). We tried to make the most of Miami, but it is so damn expensive. $250 minimum for a hotel and everything is full because there is a huge art event going on in South Beach.
Really can’t afford another $500 flight back to Central America either..
Saving the last of my money and heading home.
If ayahuasca has taught me anything it’s that whatever will be will be, don’t sweat the small stuff and don’t be upset over things you cannot control.
Peru was meant to be and the others were not at this time.
It will be nice to be home to my family and loving boyfriend… I guess I will be home for Christmas!
Stay tuned for more Dreamers Journeys.
I’m not putting away the passport and pack quite yet.
