Absent-minded me gained an extra day in London

Posted on August 20, 2006

I’ve just realized that when I booked all the flights and hotels for the upcoming UK foray I made a slight mistake.

I booked a hotel for me for the duration of the YAPC::EU conference in Birmingham, another hotel for my wife and my brother-in-law for their stay in London during the conference, a B&B in Stratford-upon-Avon for me and my wife for our mini vacation after the conference and the flights to and from London.

All well and good, except…

It turns out that I booked our flight to London (my wife and mine only) one day too soon!
We were supposed to fly over on a Tuesday and I booked the flight for Monday. My brother in law who booked his own flights is going over on Tuesday as scheduled.

And, as it turns out, re-booking the flight would be so damned expensive that I just settled for booking an extra day at the hotel in London before leaving for Birmingham.

Oh, what a disappointment this turned out to be, a hole extra day in London with Tuxa. Tsk, Tsk…

It wasn’t on purpose. No really, it wasn’t! :-)
