Rough plans for Colombia, Ecuador and Peru (in this order)

Posted on

I’ll spend four weeks in Colombia and three in Ecuador.)

If possible, I do wish to avoid high (or at least peak) season so that things won’t become too expensive.

I think I have to do Peru in November (i.e., AFTER arriving in Colombia in mid-September and continuing to Ecuador), since if I go directly to Peru from Europe, I’ll likely have visa problems with Chile and Argentina.  In any case it’ll be much safer for me to try to sort that out ONE COUNTRY IN ADVANCE (like in Ecuador).

Since the only thing in Peru that I feel I need to see but haven’t is Machu Picchu, I’ll limit my stay in Peru (mainly Lima) for roughly 2 weeks or a bit more than that; I’ll plan the flights to and back from Cuzco (with round-trip trains from somewhere to Aguas Calientes) at the middle of the stay, preferably not too close to my direct flight to Easter Island

本來走 Tirana/Budapest/Madrid/Bogota,
如果改TIA/London/MAD/BOG會有London分成LGW和LHR的問題。

查了一下,Albania周邊國家(如Sofia, Bulgaria)沒什麼轉機簡單的點,多半還是會飛到London(雙機場)轉。

有一個可能是:Dubrovnik會直飛Madrid,而Madrid本來就會直飛Bogota。

可是,如果直接查Dubrovnik (DBV) => Bogota,仍然都會是三段(至四段),例如
DBV/LON (雙機場)/MAD/BOG,
DBV/MAD/LIM (Lima)/BOG,
DBV/MAD/SCL/BOG

後面二者感覺都蠻蠢的,因為會先飛到Lima或Santiago
– 先飛到Lima的話如果就從Peru開始玩,那要跑到Colombia又繞路;
而且萬一在Lima辦Chile簽證不順利就完蛋了;
– 先飛到Santiago那一定不能入境智利,因為沒簽證。

2012/2/5 Malev drama 大查機票

Posted on

原本我的行程是:
Tirana (Albania)/ Budapest (Hungary)/ Madrid (Spain)/ Bogota (Colombia)

可是Tirana/Budapest和Budapest/Madrid都是Malev Airlines(匈牙利航空),而匈航破產了。不知道匈航破產會比較像日航破產(小case)還是墨航破產(大家都不鳥它了)。

所以我就開始查。

如果我被迫放棄前二段,要自己想辦法飛到Madrid再接,那要怎麼接呢?

入口網址很多,但我就隨便先選以前用慣的荷蘭網站:http://www.vliegwinkel.nl

1) 在2012/9從Tirana到Bogota的方案有:
Tirana/Rome/Paris/Bogota
Tirana/Vienna/Frankfurt/Bogota
Tirana/Vienna/Paris/Bogota
Tirana/Vienna/Madrid/Bogota (其中後二班是由屬於OneWorld的Iberia提供,所以我可以自己飛到Vienna,再改點把Budapest改成Vienna飛過去接。)

2) 自購機票銜接的方案:
Tirana/Vienna = Euro 334 up (via Istanbul) 總長7hr(小時)
Tirana/Madrid = Euro 324 up (via Istanbul) 總長22hr Read the rest of this entry
