It's official. We were informed by GAdventures today that the Israel part of the trip has been cancelled. There is a mandatory 14 day quarantine for anyone entering the county. Most of the people on the trip need to make alternative arrangements. I know that GAdventures will take care and probably give us a voucher for the Israel part. I fully intend on coming back to Israel.
At my hotel in Aquaba, I spent over 2 hours trying to rebook my flight. My original flight was from Tel Aviv to San Diego. Now I'm trying to rebook out of Amman, Jordan. I tried 3 different phone numbers and they kept sending me back to the 800 number. There was over 60 minute wait to talk to someone. I tried to change it online, which didn't work. I tried the App, which didn't work. I gave up & booked another flight out of Amman, and hope I can get a refund for the part of the original flight that I am not doing.
Another blog entry will discuss leaving the Bedouin camp and going to Aquaba.
The blog name is a play on words - my name. Also, when I lived on Martha's Vineyard in the 70's I lived with a family. The 3-year old used to call me "soup", so I came up with Soupy's Travels.
I love to travel, both domestically & internationally. Blogging is new to me, and I hope this is a good forum to share my travel stories with you.
