It was month of April, 2019. We had our bags packed for travelling on next week. On 21st April morning there was breaking news all over TV about terror attack in SriLanka, just 5 days before our travel. It was the first time we booked everything through travel agency. We were very worried how we’ll travel in this situation. Within 24 hrs. of the attack the airline announced free cancellation for those who were travelling within 5 days after the attack. So, we got our full refund from the airline. But our travel agency was not refunding any amount but they offered us to change our destination. So, we changed our destination to Malaysia.
We took one-month time to get ready for Malaysia as we need to check and book flight tickets again. We decided to travel from 5th June to 10th June. After booking flight ticket we applied for Malaysia visa.
