In the words of Morpheus (Matrix), “Welcome to the Real”. In the words of Jayme and Erinn “WHOOHOOO!” Our trip feels much more official as we just received confirmation of our RTW tickets. Yes we’ve done a lot of preparation already, but none of it entailed the commitment of deciding on an itinerary backed by a financial “stamp”. As I said in an earlier post, we bought our tickets in South Africa through a general sales agent at Mindpearl. Cindy Jacobus was friendly, helpful, and easy to contact (other than the 13 hr. time difference!) through email. We even hit a 10% sale that One World just started to celebrate 10 years of RTW tickets. I double checked the American Airlines website and sure enough our reservations are confirmed…. now we just need to get to S. Africa!
