Update on The Tickets

Well, well, well, it seems that we've reached a better solution rather than paying the extra 300 Euros to buy two plane tickets from Rovaniemi to Helsinki. I'm PLEASED that hubby didn't pay for the tickets right away. Instead, after listening to my screams and my angry expletives (yeah, I can be the devil Amel, too!), he browsed online for alternatives.

First of all, we went through the train webpage. However, turned out that there would be no train to Helsinki that day that would allow us to board the Tuesday plane on time.

Then we found out that the cheaper airline had a Monday flight and we checked up on the price and it was SO cheap!!! However, that meant that we had to stay one night in Helsinki, right? So hubby browsed for some hotels near the airport and he found out that he could use one member card to get a discount in one of the hotels.

You know what? The cheaper Monday tickets PLUS the cost of staying one night in that hotel is LESS than 300 Euros!!! So we've told the travel agent that we're not going to book those expensive tickets and we've already booked the cheaper tickets plus the hotel. ;-D

So we're going to stay at this hotel: Cumulus Airport Helsinki. Phew!!! Now everything's set, so let me blog-hop he he he...

Pssttt...last night I dreamt of one of the local delicacies in Indo that I've missed so much. I definitely am looking forward to going back to Indo in October HE HE HE HE HE...
