It's no secret in our household that bad things seem to happen when we travel.
1. Car locked in Innsbruck parking garage
2. Barely caught the last train back to La Spezia because of train strike
And those are just a couple of examples.
This weekend Sean has a four day, so we wanted to take advantage of it and go somewhere we hadn't yet. Our choices are usually a little limited as we try to take Boomer with us since I hate asking people to dog -sit him all the time.
So..we decided on Slovenia. I've been dying to go there and Sean said he was game. On Sunday I started emailing some of the places to stay about making reservations. The place I really wanted to stay offered spa services and was a great price.
I got an email back from them saying they were closed until December. So did the second place I emailed. Finally I heard back from my third choice, but we are still in the process of negotiating our stay there.
It's a little odd to me that they are closed. Sure, I know there is an off-season, but usually the places shut down in August, as that seems to be the month of locals taking their own trips.
I just hope this trip works out!
