That is good advice and this is why I haven't just gone ahead and booked it regardless. But my wife is getting fed up with me spending so much time researching that I have to either pull the trigger or forget it... at least for a while. The thing is that I have gone through this loop quite a few times in the past 6 months or so. Each failed because I couldn't find anything to suit my available dates. I am, by nature, a very cautious beast when it comes to spending thousands of pound on anything
