    I was to....for the future.

    Hello, dear teachers and helpers!

    I need your suggestion.

    Suppose I want to tell about a plan I made some time ago for the future, but things changed. Is it odd if I say " I was to travel to NY next year, but things changed and I won't".

    Could I use I was to instead of I was supposed to ?
