I am going to be stranded in Montreal in June. Actually that doesn’t sound too bad. I might end up liking it there. Here’s why – it’s all British Airways fault. I am off in a week to host a group of lovely people on board Regent Seven Seas. So I needed to get to Rome and I have a bundle of frequent flyer points…. Sorry I shouldn’t use that language on a public site. Getting to Rome was easy – but getting from the Med back to Calgary seemed impossible. I could only get as far as Montreal. That was then and this is now. I still haven’t booked that darn ticket from Montreal to Calgary. Why? It’s the old story. The lawyer doesn’t have a will. The accountant is late with his taxes. And the cobbler’s children have no shoes. I just haven’t got round to it because you know my people, you come first and by the time I get home in the evening well the last thing I feel like doing is booking another flight.
So I am stranded in Montreal. I also haven’t had time to get my hair done or do my toes. But that’s OK – you know why. My little group on Regent Seven Seas have a shipboard credit of $500 per cabin. Wow $500. I can have fun with that in the spa. I can have all my nails painted and my hair cut and even have change for the gift shop. I love groups! Always these little “extras” that make you feel appreciated.
So Sunday 5th June I fly out of Calgary. At least I have the weekend to pack and of course my trusty computer will be coming with me so I can keep you all updated as I experience Rome, Monac0, Malta, Sicily, Greece and Turkey. Oh wow – now I am getting excited. Stay tuned.
In the meantime I need to file my taxes, make a will and book a flight from Montreal to Calgary.
