So are we going in May? Or not...

So we arrived back from our Christmas holiday on 15th Jan.😿

On 16th Jan I called Virgin Flying Club! We had 90,000 air miles and I was on a mission to spend them!

We have a 2 week cancellation in the villa from May 16th plus a couple of days gap so we can be a bit flexible with dates.

The very nice chap at Flying Club sorts us out with a 14 night stay from 15th May in PE for the cost of the tax plus 165 for a few extra air miles. My card is out and Im ready to book it!

But wait, Richard says to hold the flights while he thinks about it! They are on hold till Friday at 11pm!

Thursday night Im dying to ask if were going or not but I dont want to push things!😂😂

Suddenly Richard says lets do Florida! My card is out and Im on the phone! Its booked and paid for before he can change his mind! 15th to 29th May from Manchester in PE.

The eagle eyed of you will notice I said the Villa was available from 16th and our flight is the 15th! We couldnt get a direct flight on 16th so opted to go the 15th and book a hotel for our first night.

Weve booked the SpringHill Suites by Marriott in the Marriott village by Vineland for 78, this includes breakfast so not a bad deal.

Just things like car hire etc to book now!

So Im eagerly checking hotels at Manchester, weve stayed in the Premier Inn, Runger Lane before, cant remember whether it was north or south but its the one with the Costa in it. I picked that one again and with 15 nights parking at Jetparks it was 120.

Just the car hire to sort now. Im checking nearly every day and they all seem a bit expensive to be honest. Well actually they seem pretty reasonable till we add the extra driver, which we definitely want.

Anyway I get a call at work one day to ask if 320 is a good price, includes the extra driver? Yes its pretty good I say. Good says Richard, Ive booked it!

So thats all the elements booked, just spends and money for food to sort out. A good start to spends is the fact we brought $1000 back with us from Christmas!

We also have about $35 on a Cheesecake Factory giftcard, $25 Panera Bread card, $50 Darden card which covers Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze, Longhorn and a couple more. Ill be topping up my Fair fx card a bit at a time.

Apparently its just less than 13 weeks till we go!

How lucky to be going back so soon and a bargain with the airmiles! I'm just wondering if you know if you can put air miles together from other accounts? We have around 24,000 points between the 5 of us but they're on 5 separate accounts!

We're also there at the same time! We go 19th and come back the 28th. Looking forward to following your pre trippie xx

Hi Kelly, you can gift miles and also transfer miles but it does cost you to do it. I think i paid about 135 to transfer some and buy some. Xx

So the new trippie note book has been purchased.



4.99 from Homesense in case anyone is looking for something like it. We are at 70 days now, Time is flying by!

My aunt who lives in France and often joins us on our trips will be flying out to meet us on 21st of May so well have 8 days with her. Shes got one hell of a journey! Montpellier to Paris to Atlanta to MCO. At least she arrives at MCO at 17.25 and no immigration so plenty of time for a few beers before bed! TTFN X
