Exciting isn’t it? Talk of travel, a lot of free time, relaxation and HOTEL Rooms that we only dream of living in..and no matter how 3 or 4 it is, it will always be better and cleaner than your bedroom back home, and if you are one of those who isn’t used to vacationing often, HOTEL rooms can be a big deal.
Now it does not have to be an exotic location you would be vacationing at. The fact that you are on vacation, the mind is programmed that its all gonna be cool & awesome.. from the time you catch your plane to landing into another state/country.. not before asking “Can I have the window seat please” at the airline counter at the airport [Yes!! why not, a picture of the view from the window of the plane is a MUST in the vacation Album] and besides aren’t vacations also all about the views [view from the window/veranda.. view from the restaurant.. view from the top of some peak etc etc]
You now arrive at your destination [hotel] and you are shown your room and the first reaction is woooooowww! It may not exactly be the wow I’m picturing in my head right now.. but it will be wow enough to sit on the bed to see how soft your bottom feels on it or the single sofa’s that have the soft cushions.
Now as Indians, we are very inquisitive people… we’d go around the room to well.. inspect (if I can use that word) every part of it, switch on the television, check the different light/lamp switches, visit the bathroom and see what it has to offer us (besides the squeaky clean pot, sink & mirror) ..the removable items like shampoo bottles, little soaps, maybe a little face towel that obviously you would not use (because you’ve carried one from home obviously) and will go straight into your bag (as a memento of the hotel ofcourse) and then eventually when its time to pack up and move on to the next place or back home, you will have enough of the ‘little things’ that you will be carrying with you.
As Ross (F.R.I.E.N.D.S) would say “You need to find a line between stealing and taking what the hotel owes you”
And what’s it about, when it its time to leave.. you see the room so perfect, that it just doesn’t feel right to leave it that way and you kind of leave your signature all over the room.. by ruining it.. and that makes your holiday complete.
We’re planning a family vacation, so this maybe a whole different experience considering my last 4 vacations have been solo, this one will pose a different challenge.
Expect a post ‘Vacationing with the Family’ after I get back.
