Onwards and upwards

An administrative hitch in Paris has given me a serious headache for the last three days. I had to cancel part of my trip (Tangier and Cadiz) and work out how to get back to Madrid five days earlier than planned.  However, the problem has now been sorted – with the help of a very good friend in Paris – and I'm now able to salvage some of the remainder of the Andalucía-Morocco trip.

I'm going to Tangier this afternoon for two days (instead of the three I'd planned) and Cadiz will have to wait at least another year to welcome me.

Apart from the stress of dealing with problems long distance, and losing part of my holiday, this episode has cost me two lost hotel booking fees, an extended stay in an expensive hotel, and about €40 in penalties for changing train tickets.

Fail not for sorrow, falter not for sin,
But onward, upward, till the goal ye win.
