It was my birthday. I was so excited to be going to Toronto,(first timer) but they they didn't let my partner through (old issues that need to be expunged dealing with his kids) so I stuck with him I lost a lot of nonrefundable money 😔. I was kind of leary about this new site, but I was pleasantly pleased and discovered a new site Wanderu that I'm sure I will be using more. I had no issues with the site and loved the price and options it gave me. So I gave my personal trip a 😭 but the site itself was quick and did save me some money so I lost less than what I could have. Wanderu get a 5 in stars so far 😊. So technically I didn't like my trip but it seems like it would have been a satisfying one with everything else 😏.
