Panic Stations!

ARGH!!! I've booked all our hotels... but Guangzhou. I've tried to book about 4 in Guangzhou, but I keep getting the same email back, saying they haven't fixed their prices yet, because it's the Canton Fair!!! OH NO!!! This is going to sounds ridiculous, but I'm not a big fan of crowds... yeah, yeah - I know - we're going to the busiest, most populated country in the world!!! But having the city overloaded because of a fair is freaking me out! What's more - my "organisational clock" is off the dial, because I can't book anything til next year - maybe even as late as March - we leave in April!!! I want it booked NOW. I want to know, how much I'm paying, and that I've definitely got 2 rooms waiting for me when I get there.

ARGH!!!! Oh, I already said that. If it was just Mr T and Me, I could do the whole "fly by the seat of my pants" thing. But when I'm towing two kids... I wanna know I'm booked.

It's also got me thinking, that we'll probably have to pay double, the normal price because of the stupid fair, that we're not even going to!!! Stupid.

There. I've vented - but I don't feel much better.

Yeah, have a good laugh, I know that come our referral, we'll only have a couple of weeks to book. Maybe this'll be good practice in patience and faith?!! I'm not coping too well at all. I'm off to check some other websites, to see if they'll let me book!!!

I feel your pain. I need to do things way ahead too. I think it's the Mom thing.
Good Luck on the hotel search.

I LOVE having it all planned out so you can do spontaneous things within the structure/outline. Does that make sense? =) Hope you can book soon!
