Memories

I remember a summer when me and a friend went to a swedish island for a vacation. We were staying at a B&B. We were 17 years old I think. My friend brought half her kitchen supplies with her because we thought you had to if you wanted to cook. We brought party clothes because we were gonna party a lot…………… we thought.

First we took a taxi to the train station that was only a couple of minutes away because my friend’s kitchen supplies was to heavy for us carry. We took the train to a town where we had to switch to a bus to take us to the B&B. On the train we were young girls doing what young girls do. We laughed and talked loudly about intimate things. Everything went fine and we took the bus after the train ride. The busdriver let us off at the bus stop but we didn’t see a B&B anywhere. We took a taxi and I think it was 500 meters he drove us! The bus had stopped where the B&B were but we didn’t see it! I wonder what the taxi driver thought about it.

Then we checked in and in this place you slept many in one room but we found a little room with only two beds and decided to put our bags there. Then. ……….. we were going grocery shopping and it took us an our to get there by foot. It was raining heavily and there we were walking and soaking wet. There were no other way to get there. We bought unhealthy food and then walked for another hour to get to the B&B with bags filled and heavy with groceries.

When we got there all our bags were thrown out of the little room by two older women who wanted that room! Alright we choose beds and went to sleep. The next day we were going to spend in our sweat pants until we would get ready to go out and party. When we sat there on our beds the manager came in and said we had to leave the B&B for a couple of hours. It was the rules. I don’t know why but there were a couple of hours the B&B had to be empty. We had to leave without having taken a shower and in our sweat pants! We just walked around and didn’t know what to do. We spent hours in a restaurant where we wrote post cards to everyone we knew. The rest of the time we walked around. When we were allowed back we were tired and didn’t want to party. We cooked our dinner in a kitchen filled with all the guests cooking at the same time! Chaos! I remember a whole family just sitting there waiting for us to finish cooking. Very relaxing! We ate and had nothing to do.

In the evening we wanted to watch tv. Let’s say we were 25 people in the tv room and one man decided what we were gonna watch. No one said anything but we all wanted the man to leave so we could watch something exciting.

After one night we felt this was nothing for us. We had booked to stay there one week and we told the manager we wanted to leave the next day. It wasn’t easy to get our money back but we got them.

The next day we took the bus to the town where the train was departing from. We spend all our money on food and things we wanted! My friend lived alone and she had no money after this. Fast forward my mom helped her out with food.

I haven’t mentioned everything we went through but it was crazy from beginning to end. I especially remember all the kitchen supplies my friend brought. We later found out the B&B kitchen had everything you could possibly need! I’ll never forget it!

Vacations

Voff and hi from Kajsa and me. We`ve had a long vacation. We haven`t done many things but we`ve relaxed. This summer was the coldest for a while but that`s a good summer to me. I sweat easy and when it`s warm outside it`s a sweat fest. Not a fest exactly but you know what I mean.

We were thinking about doing some travelling this summer but we didn`t. I think the best vacation is to do nothing. Boring to some but I love it. The one thing I would love to do is to rent a boat with my mom. Not because I love boats but the thought of me and my mom on a boat is crazy. My mom would fall overboard all the time and neither one of us know how to ride a boat. We would have to sleep in the same room, or what it`s called, and Kajsa would get hysterical in the tiny space between us in the bed. When I was younger we had a boat but that was different then. Now when we`re both old and haven`t even seen a boat for years it would get out of control.

Take care for now.

 

 

 

 

 

Dirty

I love staying in hotels. It’s the best vacation to not have to do anything but just be. Although……….

I watched an english show where a comedian told how dirty hotel rooms were. She took her own pillow and duvet with her because she didn’t want to sleep in the things the hotels had. I know what she means. It’s disgusting to think about what goes on in hotel beds! I try not to think about it but when you find a dark curly hair in the bed it’s hard not to. I would never buy a used bed and a hotel beds are used to say the least.

She also said the remote control is the dirtiest thing in hotels. Yuck! Haha I won’t say what she said about it but it had to do with men staying alone and what they did while they were there. Disgusting!

I used to clean hotel rooms for a while when I was a university student. You never knew what you would find when you opened the door to the room you were cleaning. The beds were often full of things that shouldn’t be there. I remember one time another cleaner found a room full of blood. I don’t know what had happened but it couldn’t be enjoyable to clean it.

Travel

I have stayed in many hotels through the years. I think it`s relaxing to spend time in hotels cause you can`t do anything but take it easy. You don`t have any must do`s and can refresh your mind. I have stayed in hotels both on the cheaper and more expensive side when it comes to the cost and I think some things are the same in all of them. One thing that comes to mind is the behaviour around the breakfast buffet. In all hotels in Sweden breakfast is included (I`ve never heard of anything else). The buffet consists of bread, fruits, eggs, bacon and much more.

There are two ways most approach the breakfast buffet. One is to only think about yourself. Those are the ones that don`t care if there are people waiting in line for something. “I think I`m the most important one in this room and I`m not waiting for no breakfast”. Without any shame they reach for a sausage in between all the people waiting for their sausage. They take the last bread roll right in front of you that you`ve been waiting thirty minutes to get to.

The second approach to getting breakfast is to act like you`ve never seen food before. These people take forever when they`re at the buffet. They annoy me! They see the juice machine and it`s like they`ve never seen a juice machine before. “What is orange juice.” They stand in front of the bread and analyze every roll and loaf like they`ve never seen bread like that before. Sometimes these slow people think they are the “only think of themselves” breakfast ones. They say “let me just get that and I leave you to it”. They say that and aim to quickly grab something before you do. They say that and then you have to wait while they stand in front of the juice machine. Confused like they`ve never seen one of them before.20170217_083120
