I don't remember having such a stressful day before a trip before. Flights cancelled and re-set, lack of information about entering South Africa which if we didn't find out our two youngest would have had to return home, passport name issue.
Things to remember:
*Not a great idea to have two different country passports (American and Israeli) with two different names (of the same person) on each. What can I say, I am a woman of many identities.
*READ ALL EMAILS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM when corresponding with travel agent.
*If you are planning a trip to South Africa with children under the age of 18, make sure you have their birth certificates in English.
*Do NOT do early check in online for 8 people all at the same time. El Al decided they needed to give an "allotted time" for this activity which is not enough for 8 people's information. It took forever to put in all the info and then they popped up the message AFTER I finished it all and hit "continue" -TIME ALLOTTED IS OVER. Seriously ?!?
Now it is 20 minutes before we leave for the airport. Keep your fingers
crossed that we get to our destination...
VICTORIA FALLS, HERE WE COME!
