UK GOV SAY NO ..ANYWHERE BUT SHARM EL SHEIKH !
SO IF YOU ARE SITTING COMFORTABLY I WILL BEGIN
Grrrrrr ! We didn’t anticipate a bomb ..never had any problems flying to Sharm or staying in Sharm ..it’s a perfect TRAVELS WITHOUT HETTY venue for winter sun ..a lot of book reading and some diving for CH ( current husband )
We were booked into Ghazala Beach Hotel for three weeks starting 8th November ..normally we go earlier but this November 3rd our Daughter in Law turned 40 ..we were obliged to be on call for partying and a bit of child minding ..job done ..now to pack ..then came the news a plane going back to Russia had come down in the Sinai desert ..showing our concern we listened to all the media reports ..A BOMB ..and UK GOV say NO you can’t fly out to Sharm ..A big rethink ..shall we rebook Haghada another Egyption resort but by the time we had decided most hotel rooms had been fully reserved only left were the multi complex child friendly resorts and we don’t do them ..
Lets get our money back was the cry before RedSeaHolidays the company we were travelling through go bust ..likely as they only do Egypt
Shall we go to the Canaries …Nooo ..What about The Ghambia ..Nooo ..Even Cuba was mooted ..Why don’t we get Hetty a service and up grade St Sat Nav ..What a good idea ..Garage can do the service on Monday and if she is fit to travel we book a ferry to Bilbao and do part of the trip we had pre planned for our next “Runaway” in 2016..more to follow…
