    Hello there, I am urgently requiring a package to be sent out to me, I am currently in Cambodia, and going to South Vietnam on tonight, then travelling up to Hanoi. I will be booking at least a 2 nights stay with you when I have a better idea of the date that I will make it to you, please may I get the package sent to your address and will you hold it for me, approx delivery date from Amazon is 18/3/15. I hope this is not a problem and to hear back from you soon, I will not place the order until I do. If this is ok, please may you send your full address and postal code. Kind regards Betzabeth Olivier
