Help Cat!

I can't believe I'm writing this, but then again - it's happened to me. I shouldn't be surprised.

catvalente is stalled in Frankfurt, Germany - her travel agent planning her honeymoon did not clear her visa status before booking their flights through to St. Petersburg. They are now stuck in a very expensive hotel trying to find the $$ to continue their voyage after they've had to pay change fees due to the agent's blunder.

Their agent, a well-known internet-based firm - has refused to accept any responsiblity. They are completely on their own. (I know these guys. I believe it.)

They can get their visas and continue - for $900, payable RIGHT NOW.

I don't know about you, but I wasn't able to attend the wedding and I certainly haven't gotten them a wedding present yet.

Cat does not feel right about accepting straight donations - but she did update her online YA novel this evening, and as it has always run on the donation model (you like, tip the writer), the jar is out.

Toss a bit more in, would you? And enjoy the story - it's a very, very good one.

Thanks in advance. Signal boost, please?

Thank you for posting, I posted after I saw this, better to say it twice, right?

Ugh. The $900 was apparently a misunderstanding on the part of the desk. We have to go at 6 am to find out what it will really cost and whether it will happen at all.
