If we want to fly out of anywhere but Philly, it becomes at least $100 more. My FI's sister may be moving to Japan next year due to her husband being in the military. Those ticket prices are between one and two thousand. But that is on the opposite side of the world. I can't believe Canada is equally as expensive.
Tell me about it, I have been to the Dominican, Cuba, Mexico at least 4 times but have never been to the East Coast of my own country because of how expensive it is to travel... there are really only a few options, lets put it this way Edmonton to Calgary is a 3 hour drive give or take but to fly is usually over $400 with taxes it is literally insane, there just isnt the competition here so really they get away with charging whatever they want! Don¨t even get me started on what kind of money we pay for a cell phone bill! LOL but it isnt all bad... there are some great reasons to live here!
