30 August - Day zero - Flew in to San Francisco but British Airways left bags in London resulting in 48 hours without any clothes etc...visit to Walgreens to replace necessary items = CLAIM 1
29 September - Day 30 - Mysterious pain in arm and chest as already described under previous blog entry resulting in visit to expensive US healthcare practitioner = CLAIM 2
28 November - Day 90 - Electrics pack up in car taking me to the airport. Taxis in remote Mexican village have to be booked one day in advance and everyone else is asleep at 5:00am resulting in $50 change fee for flight and $30 cancellation fee for hostel booked in Hawaii = CLAIM 3
Early December - Around Day 100 - military coup imminent in Fiji. See http://www.fco.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1007029390590&a=KCountryAdvice&aid=1013618386703. So I would invalidate my travel insurance by travelling to Fiji (because of the warning the Foreign Office has given) but the travel agent say it is the responsibility of the airline to re-route and the airline say they have not been advised not to fly there and therefore will not re-route and this is despite the Australian and in fact all governments telling travellers not to travel to Fiji and there being a possible evacuation of foreigners already in Fiji. So you can see that I have tried other options but it's looking like this will = CLAIM 4.
STA Travel must hate me.
