Yikes! Almost made a travel mistake. Was checking over my itinerary and noticed I hadn’t booked a flight from Cairo to Larnaca. I was to arrive, I thought, in Larnaca on the 11th. I had already booked the stay from the 11th to the 17th. Given my choices of airlines, it would cost a significant (100’s of USD$) more to arrive on the 11th. Checking around and using some miles, I found a flight that I could pay for with my accumulated miles. Of course, it all depended on my Airbnb host being able to move the arrival and departure dates to the 8th. He was! Disaster avoided! Lesson Learned: Check, check, and double check.
In addition, I did more research on places to stay in Dubrovnik. Now, as it turns out, since I need to be in Larnaca earlier I have more time in Dubrovnik. Was deciding on staying at two different places in Dubrovnik, now I can reserve both places.
Over the next couple of day, will be taking care of remaining errands before leaving Budapest. On Saturday, I’m joining InterNations people on a trip to the Budapest Botanical Gardens – which will take up most of the day since it is two hours out and back.
Tonight, I’m starting to watch the Star Wars movies. Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.
