In a direct contradiction to THAT indecisiveness, Jeffrey and I just booked a flight to San Francisco in September. We’ll be arriving in SF on Friday September 3rd and departing on Tuesday September 7th. The deciding factors were:
- We could get a direct flight on American Airlines from Boston to San Francisco as opposed to Flying to Phoenix on Alaska Airline with a transfer in Portland or Seattle. As I have never flown before, nor had to endure airline security, a direct flight seemed like the least stressful experience I could have the first time around as opposed to having to change flights.
- The flight to San Fran is only costing us about $200.00 total for both of us over the credit from our pre-purchased tickets to Portland last year. The flight to Phoenix would have cost us almost $800.00 more. Money was really the deciding factor for us. Honestly, had we not found a considerably cheaper destination to fly to, we would not have gone anywhere, as we were not willing to invest another thousand dollars over what we already spent.
The Pros: I’m excited. San Francisco is on my bucket list; as is flying.
The Cons: I’m disappointed. I am going to miss seeing my oldest brother and the chance to meet a blogger I REALLY want to meet some day this time around. (Just postponed.)
So, have at it: we need suggestions for where to stay, where to go, what to see and what to do. We’ll have part of day when we arrive and 3 full days to explore. Again, your suggestions and input would be invaluable!
