This feels very familiar. 10 days after cancelling the reservation at our backup hotel in Lyon, we receive an email notifying us that our first-choice, great-value, great-location, this-is-too-good-to-be-true hotel dropped our reservation.
Now it is back to the proverbial drawing and, wouldn’t you know? Hotels are booked up and those that aren’t are charging special, astronomical Euro 2016 rates.
Yet slightly less so than having your hotel burn down one month out from your first African adventure. How about that for positive thinking?
