Decisions, decisions. Rouen or Paris? We decided on going straight through to Paris to leave us with plenty of time to meet Jake & Sam when they fly into Paris. Paris traffic proves to be the worst we have come across so far - 1 hour to travel 5km!! And that was on the expressway!!!
Calamity strikes at the 11th hour!!! After we booked in we logged onto the internet to check our apartment booking for Paris - nothing! No booking confirmation or anything!! After a flurry of emails the booking agency told us it was all too hard to coordinate the bank transfer and booking agreement, so they cancelled our booking!! This is all at the last minute.
A quick google search brought up some alternatives, picked one which was suitable, flicked off a quick email pleading for an accelerated booking procedure and was rewarded by a most accommodating company. A phone call later, we were booked, confirmed, paid for, contract sent, and check in arrangements made. A large relief!! we have somewhere to liver for Xmas (http://www.parisvacationapartments.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70%3Asacre-coeur-chic-2-bedroom-with-balcony&catid=37&Itemid=179&lang=en).
