Everyone loves the feeling of being on vacation, away from the real world... Far from the stresses and chaos of our daily lives.
However, even in this heightened state of bliss... Which can often seem insurmountable, I have found an even better solace that is often rolled out of and overlooked.
My heavenly happy place while away is always the extremely plush hotel bed. This is my vacation within a vacation. The hazy view of the sun drenching the soft crinkled sheets, the feeling when you stretch and starfish diagonally across the California king... that's realistically the size of a standard NYC bedroom, and lay there lazily basking in the little haven that has been subtly created just for you.
Once I've fully relished in the space and comfort of my mini sanctuary, I'll quickly slip out... Make a cup of coffee, poke my head out to sneakily grab the papers in my skivvies, and leap straight back into bed.
I can spend hours leisurely perusing through the magazines I didn't have time to read on the plane, or browsing local headlines. I also give equal opportunity and concentration to the breakfast menu... Which, as you could have guessed, is best served right there in that luscious bed.
So no matter where your travels take you or why you may be away from home, remember to treasure those calm, beautiful moments in the morning that you may not get once you're back in the real world.
