Paula and I are gearing up for our trip to the US and Europe in a couple of weeks, but beforehand I need to dash up to Brisbane for a quick visit to see the family before I go. It’s my cousin Dean’s birthday this week so I thought I would time my visit so that I can catch up with him as well as my husband and adult kids who all live in Brisbane.
I am hoping the weather will be a bit nicer than we are having at the moment. It’s quite cool and raining, in fact we are currently on Flood Watch.
It’s just as well I like flying because I tend to fly up to Brisbane every couple of months for a visit.
This morning we printed out the tickets for our overseas flights and hotels to make sure we had everything covered. As we worked through the tickets we couldn’t find the one from Canberra to Sydney at the start of the journey. So it was a mad search on all our email addresses to find it. It had to be somewhere as it had been marked off on the whiteboard as being done. Finally we found the booking on the Virgin site, so the ticket go printed and life returned to normality.
So everything checks out and we have 8 days where we have booked nothing as we want to just go wherever the mood takes us in Europe. The first 5 days in Europe are in Paris and the last 5 are in Prague. We also have 11 days booked in Spain as well.
Paula was looking on Tripadvisor and found that the hotel we had booked in Paris had really average reviews, it had no internet connection and no breakfast included. Now considering that blogging is our business and we need the internet we looked at each other and went ‘what the’. So it was a quick call to Expedia to cancel the hotel and we booked another one closer to the Louvre with all the amenities we need. Crisis over. And no cancellation fees to pay, thank you Expedia.
