May be postponing my US trip to colorado

Ok so Donald trump has put a travel bann on people visiting the US from most of europe, he had excluded ireland and the UK, but from Monday the bann extends to both ireland and the UK also. The bann is for 30 days, but that could go on longer depending on how this coronavirus pans out.

So it is looking likely that I’ll have to postpone my visit to colorado to see Sarah. I’m going to ring the travel agent on Monday to see what they will say. If I am given an option to cancel the trip and get refunded I will, and then I will just rebook the trip when things die down.

I think given all thats going on with coronavirus, its the best option all around. I could go and get sick, and pass the virus on, or I could get sick and end up sick in another country and end up there for weeks if not months, so its best not to put myself in that predicament.

At least I can rebook the trip. I will still be able to go visit Sarah. It might just have to wait a little longer than we had planned.

We’re planning for me to go in july, or else early fall, we arent sure yet and we’re just waiting to see what happens with the coronavirus. At least my visa is valid for 2 years, thats good at least. Now the US ESTA visas arent being approved, since the bann is coming into effect, so mine was approved just in time!

Booked my trip to the USA!

I just got off the phone with the travel agent, I have booked my flights to colorado!
I am going next May! For two weeks!
I leave on May 20th and I come home on June 3rd!
I am flying cork to london heathro, then on to denver, in total its 13 hours of traveling each way!
I have a stop over in London for about 2 and a half hours, before I fly on to denver
I will be getting assistance in all of the airports, the travel agent has already spoken to the airlines for me about that.
I’m flying to London with Aer lingas, and then united airlines for my flight on to denver!
I am super super excited! This is going to be fab!
I cant wait to meet Sarah and I know we’re going to have an amazing time together!
Her mom has already said she’s going to take me to some touristy places in colorado!
So I’ll take lots of pictures and post them!
It is so good to have a trip to look forward to for next summer! And I’m not going too late in summer either, so the weather wont be overly hot but it will just be nice.
This is a great way to start my Saturday!
