Going back sooner than expected

by /bio/jjeremi32 »

I’m in Costa Rica right now for a vacation. The initial plan was to stay here for a month, but because of some family emergency, I need to cut my trip short. I called the travel agency where I got my ticket from and they said they couldn’t rebook my ticket because of the itinerary I chose. I don’t know what to do.


My parents would be very disappointed if I don’t go back to Chicago soon. I already feel bad that my brother is still in a foreign matchmaking tour outside the country and can’t come home. At least me being there could compensate for my brother’s absence.


I need help for getting last minute tickets out of Costa Rica. I don’t mind getting connecting flights or going to another city. I’m in San Jose right now.
