Being a Sagittarius, I pride myself for my adventurous, loose-planny, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-firey-pants ways. I love to travel without any agenda other than having an adventure. Being that way was a great asset when I was single. Now, I am happily not single. What’s more, I am happily not singled to a Virgo (of ALL signs!). This means that my maladjusted ne’er-do-care ways have slowly adapted to a more civilized and organized existence. And I like it! Planning has proven to be a very excellent skill, especially in the arrangement of our soon-coming honeymoon. Because of my new found planfulness and researchfulness, I have been able to find the best credit card for overseas travel (Capitol One – zero foreign transaction fees), I have been able to locate fantastic little apartments to rent during our trip at fantastic little prices, I got us reservations at the Arab baths in Granada, I’ve made sure that we will have the priority pass for entrance into the hoity-toity travelers lounge at the 5 international airports from / to which we are traveling, I know to expect to get robbed by RyanAir for their checked-bag fees, and the list goes on. I like being a planner!
For the most part.
Until I get my daily Remodelista.com blog email and see that a brand new fantastic adorable hotel has JUST opened in Madrid. Just DAYS after I booked our Madrid hotel for a non-refundabe amount. It’s called Hotel Praktik Metropol. See below for fantastic adorableness:
What’s worse is that rooms start at €50. And it’s on Gran Via in the middle of everything. See?
A POX UPON PLANNING!
