My unlucky ticket to United States Virgin Islands

I am Pablo, and I live in Puerto Rico. I always had a dream to see the Virgin Islands and I was saving money to buy a ticket. I managed to save up enough and then found a reasonably cheap ticket. However, I could not even imagine that so many things could happen to prevent my trip to the Virgin Islands! First of all, my best friend had a terrible accident: he was in hospital and it did not look good. I had to return my ticket and cancel my trip to the Virgin Islands. After a month he recovered, so I bought another ticket to the Virgin Islands for the following week. Five days later my grandmother died. I had to return my ticket again. For a third time I bought a ticket to the Virgin Islands! This time I swore I would leave, whatever happened, and luckily nothing happened. The ticket was with US Airways, and I’ve always enjoyed flying with them. I had a wonderful time in the Virgin Islands; it was everything I’d dreamed of. There were only two days left of my visit to the Virgin Islands, when I got a call from my father. My mother had fallen and broken her leg. It was an unlucky ticket after all!

Ticket full of memories to United States Virgin Islands

Hello, I’m Paula from New York. I first visited the Virgin Islands when I was little, and now it’s my favourite holiday destination. Each year I intend to go somewhere different, and I end up buying a ticket to the Virgin Islands. I have such sweet memories of the Virgin Islands with my family. Unfortunately I lost most of my family members around 10 years ago. Maybe that is the reason I only want to buy my ticket to the Virgin Islands. My last visit was actually my favourite, about 3 months ago. I bought my ticket to the Virgin Islands through Continental Airlines. The flight was very pleasant and quiet. A few days after I arrived in the Virgin Islands, I was walking by myself, and bumped into some old friends. We had a great evening full of laughter and memories. I came back promising to return there again soon, and I’ve bought another ticket already! I feel closer to my family when I am in the Virgin Islands. I think the ticket price is worth it. And I hope that one day I will not need a ticket to get to the Virgin Islands anymore, because I will be living there.
