I am still waiting on a few things to come through before I’ll be able to 100% firm up Norway trip plans. The longer I have to wait, though, the more expensive plane tickets will be. I don’t think there will be a large difference between prices now and prices in April, though. I hope not My current estimate for 6 plane tickets during peak travel season to and from Scandinavia is hovering around 3G.
If I can’t go as planned, it will be a severe bummer but I can always go another time?
I feel like people say that and then they never get around to actually going.
I mentioned in the FAQs that my company offers what is called “permissive leave” – unlimited paid vacation, within reason, as long as it’s approved by your manager. Now that I am being forced to find another job, I am trying as hard as I can to stay within the company for this benefit and for several other reasons. But there is a small chance I will have to take on a new role outside of my current company, as much as I would rather not. If that happens, then Norway almost definitely is NOT happening this year.
I will know more in a couple of weeks. One way or another, this situation will be resolved by the end of March.
