My mother in law was sad to hear that we weren't going to make it and she made it very clear that if we weren't going, she wasn't! (IDK why...) She decided that she would pay for our airfare and hotel (How nice of her...)
I went online searching for tickets from NY to Jamaica --looking for the best deal possible--I found 2 tickets from NY to Kingston, Jamaica for $600! Awesome!
We booked the tickets on Thursday.I found out yesterday that Kingston Airport is 5 hours away from the resort where the wedding will be held....OMG 5 hours! I didn't even know Jamaica was that big.
I immediately went into panic mode and called Coco Puff to tell him about my mistake. He says "No worries, you'll fix it. Muah! I love you even if we're flying from Alaska!" (Uhhhhh thanks....)
I checked tickets from NY to the Montego Bay, Jamaica Airport--which is 15 minutes from the resort--the ticket difference will be another $1,000. (Thats crazy)
I checked tickets from Kingston, Jamaica airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica airport--that flight would be only 40 minutes but costs over $600. (For a 40 minute flight in the same country??)
I checked taxi fare from Kingston, Jamaica to Montego Bay, Jamaica--The drive will be 4-5 hours and it costs $290, then of course $290 back. (Who wants to drive for 5 hours?)
So it looks like either way we have to pay another $600-$1000. (Exactly what I tried to avoid)
OMG how am I gonna tell me mother in law I did this??
And that it costs her an additional $600-$1,000....
