British Airways is having an autumn sale, particularly on Caribbean holidays and flights to North America. I’m particularly interested in the flights to Washington DC for about ï¿½250.
This has put me into a bit of a quandary. I’m very much a marshmallow now sort of person when it comes to travelling, and I’ve spent nearly all my holiday (vacation) budget this year, mostly on not exactly holidays like trips to see family, I haven’t had what I’d describe as a ‘real holiday’ this year. I’ve got ï¿½250 left, which is just enough to pay for the flight, so when I saw the advert I was sorely tempted to book the flights. After all, with the good exchange rate, I’d be paying next to nothing for a hostel bed and food and so on.
On the other hand, I had been planning to save the extra money from this year and go to Egypt for a week next year. I’ve been to the States before (but not to DC) and I haven’t been to Egypt, and this trip would take in the Pyramids and a felucca trip on the Nile. It sounds really cool.
The question is, can I hold out for the two marshmallows next year and the trip to Egypt or will I gorge myself on the one now and go to DC?
