This last 3 weeks in Spain will be interesting. I don’t know if I have lost interest now or whether it is just that I’m socialised to death from catching up with too many people the last couple of weeks – and the stress of all the money stress. You know how stressful it is when you don’t know what is happening with the money.
I slept most of yesterday and today – I think that’s a reaction to something!
I’m trying to pay finals on Morocco. I emailed them last week to say “guys, I haven’t heard from you about paying finals. Are you still emailing my home account, when I gave you all my travel details (including email)?” They emailed back ‘oh yes, you’re right – that’s exactly what we are doing!” So they’ve been emailing me about finals and haven’t heard.
Now we are communicating, but we are having issues with our credit card paying the balance. I called the bank and they said ‘yes’ there’s a hold on the account – from when they queried the Western Union transfer as a possible overseas fraud, but we’ve taken off the hold now and it should all be okay.
It wasn’t!
So I emailed them again and they said ‘sorry – the hold wasn’t completely off – but it should be good now’. It still isn’t. I just got a message from the tour group saying it has been declined.
So, I’ve emailed the bank again (pain in the butt being in Spain and being too expensive to call them) and said ‘guys, it’s getting desperate. These guys will think I can’t pay for my trip!”
Let’s see what they say now!
So, hopefully tomorrow we’ll have our act together again and go out to Malaga for the day; maybe Cordoba later in the week. Mark (Alora) says that Cordoba is worth a visit – and easily done by train!
BUT, I need to have that Morocco leg finalized – otherwise, what are we going to do for November? πŸ™‚

  1. OMG OMG OMG said shaking head in hands.

    I think sleep could be worry though also happy exhaustion, Trish. You have been rather busy and social and good stress can tire you too.

    I know this because I generally need a lie down after reading your blogs, and I enjoy them!

    Keep ’em coming! HUGS! xoxo


  2. If it all falls through you can come back to Horley, find the guitar and realise that dream πŸ˜‰
    Or let me know the details and we’ll use my credit card instead πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰


  3. I can’t believe you’re still having such a problem with your bank 😦 I hope they sort it soon so you can relax and enjoy this leg of your wonderful trip!!! Looking forward to hearing if you manage to find a quant little music shop in Malaga and finally get to serenade Eric as he deserves πŸ™‚ xxxx


    • Hey Rachel – as you can see from comment below, it is all sorted!
      As it’s 11am and I’ve only just dragged myself from bed – chances are dwindling that I’m going to drag myself to Malaga today. Many shops are closed from 2pm for siesta; but I’ll see what I can do.
