Pink sheets, anyone? The room looks dainty and girly, isn’t it?
I haven’t been to a hotel with pink sheets!
Back in the early 2000s I experienced living out of my suitcase. I was traveling both locally and internationally on a regular basis but stayed only for brief periods of time, doing some researches and monitoring and evaluation of our projects. It’s a very fast-paced life, I was always on the road and the hotel rooms where I stayed served as my home away from home. But don’t get me wrong, I was single at that time and enjoyed every minute of it!
Living in hotels I took advantage of the hotel amenities like gym, sauna, swimming pool, room service, etc… to keep me from getting bored and relaxed at the end of a busy day. In one of the hotels I stayed at in Tokyo was that the shades open automatically at 8am and closes at 7pm and the cooler/heater adjusts to a comfortable level depending on the weather. I know, from where most of you probably are this is considered “common”! Nowadays I know this kind of conveniences can now be had at your own home. All you have to do is have a home automation software installed in your house and – voila! Your lights turn on at the time you set it, your house warms or cools at a level of your liking, or your coffee starts brewing while you are in the shower. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some kind of automation in our homes?
