The holiday debacle part II
Thursday, September 24, 2009
After the nightmare of failing to book a few days in the Black Forest, the boy suggested Easyjet (which I did not realise has CHEAP holidays...DOH! Dumb blonde syndrome)...anyway....so I looked quickly and ooooooooh, HELLO Majorca!! It was warm but not too much, the dates fitted and best of all it was WITHIN BUDGET!!
So we spent literally 3 HOURS checking out the various hotels, reading reviews to make sure we NOT going to end up in a party-hotel, etc and then we decided on one (4*, quiet, 3 swimming pools...) and went on to book.
Attempt 1: "an error has occured, please try again"
Attempt 2: "the price of your trip has changed"......................
So suddenly the travelling would be about 3 times the price of the room and half-board. BF's face turned a white shade of pale.
It was midnight.
I turned the computer off. I turned to BF and explained that since some of my SP friends were in danger of losing their homes, although it totally sucked that we can't afford this holiday right now, I'd rather book early for next year and get a cheap flight. And that he could un-book his days off for this year and that we'd go out for the day that weekend. Maybe even to the black forest (no gateau involved).
But seriously, this holiday thing: WE ARE DOOMED ;-)
