Travelling, discovering, exploring – but most of all, relaxing – that’s a great holiday.

Wicker swing in softer material than those I usually encounter. Been thinking about one out on the patio, but every time I try I’m not as fond. Looks good but not as comfortable.

Beach vacation

It’s that time of year when I would like to go away, get a change of scenery & simply rest. Ideally, I’d like to get off to a desolate place without a lot of activities, people & historical attractions. It’s contrary to what I usually like. I do actually enjoy the rush of big cities & colorful street life with congestion & noise. You can experience & feel the pulse at close range & still remain anonymous – in the middle of the crowd. It’s quite appealing & cozy (If cozy is the right expression of course). But it’s not quite that kind of longing I have. No, it would be very nice to travel somewhere with a distance to all of this. Beaches, sun beds, palm trees, shade, heat & not too many people around. How does that sound?

I guess it’s boring for some & heaven, for others. The fact is that I have all those things around me, within 30 minutes distance. Still, I’d like to go somewhere far away – just for the sake of change. I may sound spoiled, which is not my intention. It’s more about the need of temporary change – new environment, new ideas, start all over or rather rethink things. To do as little as possible, with simple decisions about which book to read or maybe take a nap. You know, relax, eat, sleep! Yep, indeed, that’s what I desire, right now. But now it will not be like that, at least not for the moment. We have relatives who’s here on five weeks visit. There will be no rest at all, the more trips, guided tours & late nights. Certainly nice but …

Happily, we can look forward to a long weekend in Singapore in March. City life instead of the relaxing mood I’m longing for. However, still a change 🙂

Hotel mood / 160

Hej friends,

Hotel – just to taste the word, it creates a feeling of happiness inside because it’s mostly associated with holiday, long nice days, relaxing atmosphere, time together with loved ones. But also connected with hard work, long days, late nights, early mornings, meetings, deadlines etc. Almost each word has a positive meaning but can be turned into something that’s less positive, which depends on each persons experience, attitude & mood & situation. It has to do with peoples approach to life, how we look at things, what we have gone through & our different perspective, I assume. And rightly so, of course. As we also carry around a backpack of occurrences, meetings, upbringing, experiences etc. Not to forget our own personality which we have to work with, some more & some less. I believe it’s called development.

But to return to the topic hotel rooms, I’ve focussed mostly on bedrooms for natural reasons. And it’s not real hotel rooms, it’s actually bedrooms with a hotel – feeling. Something you can do at home while or when you are in a hotel mood:)
