Time to book that October trip to Brussels at least? Or risk it and wait for a Snap ticket closer to the time? No, done it now. Booking window open till 1st Nov, so I booked ticket out Saturday afternoon coming back afternoon Tuesday. Gives me TWO full days in Brussels Sunday and Monday, more than enough to be honest. And Tuesday chance for a last Cine Paris or Gare du Nord window before my late Eurostar home. Then I have Wednesday Thursday and Friday free in London. Max is looking EXPENSIVE 225 euros for 3 nights. Dare I wait till the time? Weekend is risky of course. That is when they will be busiest.
The hour of truth approaches. Try to sleep a bit. I carry on taking my newspaper diaries and books to —–. Carry on TRYING not to use my credit cards and trying to build up a permanent £1,300 reserve in my bank account. October 7 days off I can SEE if I can get a Snap ticket close to the time and take it from there. Eurostar is already £89 and will go up with every day that passes of course.
Check Eurostar for October 28.
I would travel out Saturday lunchtime, stay FOUR nights in Max, come back Wednesday afternoon. Eurostar looking like £84. Booking Max so far ahead makes it more expensive so expect bit extra to pay.
The Snap window has now been extended from 6 September to 25 September, so I CAN go on 19th and come back morning of 22 September. But I honestly don’t know if I have anything to go to Brussels FOR. Inna and Mariana that is it. Feels too soon still. Need to REBUILD my finances, and bring all my credit cards down. That money I would spend on Inna and Mariana should be spent bringing my credit card debt down so I have something to spare when I go to Vienna on October 28 (if I do). The thought of booking all those hotels and train tickets even for end of October is depressing to me. I really need to leave it till NEXT YEAR before I can really afford Vienna.
Yes the way I live my life is crazy, insane; but fantastic! Legendary. Knowing I am going to be suspended without pay for at least 25 days and not knowing how to pay my bills, I go home and book a £189 Eurostar ticket and £150 hotel stay! And then don’t even go! Biographers will love this in 100 years’ time.
