A friend of mine has used a load of points she gets through work to pay for a room at the Holiday Inn :-) So I have a free hotel room. Only one night, but it'll do. Two parts of the puzzle sorted...just the flight to sort now!
Bastards! I saw the boat, but I'm flat hunting at the moment, so all my time's spent scouring the interweb for somewhere new to live. I'm sure I'll find time over the weekend to hop on board though! :-)
