Travel Travails Part Deux

Well, based on the information we received about baggage restrictions, we have changed our travel plans.

Travel Travails

AUC buys our tickets to Cairo. They say that we can make a stop over where ever we want, and we just pay the difference between the direct fare and the fare for our itinerary. Fair enough. We notified them that we wanted to stop over in Europe for 2 weeks. It is meant to [...]
