Think we're allowed 100 kilos....

We are off to Montenegro on Friday to see the apartment we bought 3 years ago which is finally completed. Well, that was the plan. Last night, the developer rang and I just knew by his breathless tone that Plan B was imminent. Well, the good news is the apartment is finished, habitable and has water and electricity. The bad news is that without a helicopter we cannot actually get into it because there is no accessible road. So we have now been booked into an apartment nearby and have been told that the situation will be assessed (parachutes?), on Sunday. This morning I received the flight details finally as I had booked these online ages ago blindly ignoring the very tiny 'subject to change' line. The bargain flight has now been moved forward to 5.50am and is going via Corfu. So up in the middle of the night with the kids (dragging them along on their Trunkis at 3am at the airport) and then an extra 1.5 hours flying time with them too. Joy. Coupled with this, as you can see we're not travelling light as I have purchased all the stuff for the apartment here. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Anyway, hopefully the apartment is great and hopefully lots of people will want to stay there so hopefully this will give us some income in Dominica. Hope's my middle name.
