I just found out today that I will have to undergo back surgery to repair a slipped disk. Surgery will occur on Monday, August 17th. This is just 5 weeks before I head off to Africa for a 3 week photo safari. This may not be enough time to recuperate from surgery and be able to track around Africa with 35 lbs worth of photo gear.
Lovely. We are past the point of no return for a refund, but I did get insurance for just this type of situation. I need to see what options I have, I certainly don't want to delay the trip, but I need to be well enough to be able to enjoy it as well.
A call to the travel agency is in order - Thomson Safari. Let's see what my options are.
