What a morning I've had...
Here we are, Jenny and me another two days in Krakow, why cause of volcanic dust,
We'd learnt last night that there may be problems with Bristol airport, to find out this morning that the flight home was cancelled.
This meant an exhausting couple of hours trying to get a flight out and then a hotel room for the extra two days.
I'd driven down to Jenny's in Devon we'd flown out from Bristol, and there are no flights back till next Sunday!!
So now we are flying to the other end of the country, to Liverpool, an hour from me.
This means that Jenny's husband has got to drive up to my house for Wedneasday night.My youngest son has got to come to the airport and pick us up to take us back to mine for the night,then the three of us go back to Devon. Cause my car is there!
Then I have to drive all the way back....
So no lovely relaxing time in Cornwall and possibly not seeing my friend there for another year, cause I've no idea when I'll be able to get back there.
This also may stop me seeing my other Devon friend as I can't see her till Friday evening, and although Jenny is fine about me hanging around hers for another 24 hours it may just be easier to go home on Thursday.
As for the hotel we have been lucky enough to stay in the same place, and almost got the last room here, which was nerve wracking as their computers went down this morning and the wait was stress making on top of trying to get a flight out.
What is really annoying is Easyjet, who will refund the cost of our flight home.... 45 pounds each, have hiked the price of the flight home to 200 pounds each. They will also appearantly give us 100 between us a day for room and food, room 230 per night!!!! So what was going to be lovely reasonably priced break is turning into a finacial mightmare.....
We can only think of the fact that we are settled have a flight booked and not let the money side worry us one bit (AAAARRGGGGHHH!!!!)
Added to that since 9pm Saturday night it hasn't stopped with torrential rain, the Wistula river outside the hotel has flooded. If we go out we get soaked in minutes up to our knees so having to go out to walk or got for food is also proving a nightmare.
All in all an interesting way to spend my precious weeks holiday.
Any other impressions will wait till I get back as Krakow is beautiful and Auschwitz was profoundly moving and disturbing.
