Foreign Travel Wasn't on the Agenda
Posted Aug 13, 2016 on Hotels
I was in Buffalo on business (touring musician). I used Hotels.com to find me the lowest price and nearest room. It found one all right. After taking my non-refundable credit card number, only then did it tell me it was in Canada. As a traveling musician, I probably don't have to tell you what a huge pain in the behind it is to cross an international border. I was only looking for a hot shower and an air-conditioned room for the night, not a cavity search and having my gear tossed about by trained monkeys who would sooner send me to Guantanimo Bay than believe my story about a mobile phone app that rarely saves me more than 5% (if that).
