We are registered, have our flights booked and accomodation sorted… although one of us (because there’s actually three of us including the founder of Seven Women my friend Steph Woolard) will have to sleep on a foldout bed… Still we have free wifi, breakfast AND a turn down service (not sure what this is) all included in our discounted 4 star hotel.
