After sleeping on rock hard, single, dorm beds my body craves coziness. I once picked a hostel simply because their common area was a room filled with crap loads of giant pillows.
That being said, coming home to a queen size bed is quite wonderful and somewhat frightening as well.
As much as people say they don’t like TV it can be pretty convenient when you’re bored, tired or procrastinating. I don’t even think about TV when I’m travelling, but it’s sweet to have around when home.
If you know me at all, you’re aware of my slipper obsession. I am ALWAYS wearing slippers. BIG. FUZZY. BRIGHT. SLIPPERS.
(Not a logical thing to travel with).
When I’m home, I no longer have to convert currencies in my head. SCORE!
(Technically I couldn’t really do it when I was travelling either).
Lastly, I enjoy that I can tell my drunk male friends to take off their shirts and they do it… I learned the hard way abroad, that this is not a normal request and you probably shouldn’t demand it from people you’ve just met.
lots of pillows, men ripping off each other’s shirts – travel really is all about the simple pleasures. 🙂
I love the pillows!!! I would do the same thing!!
it was phenomenal
that one in cusco where the bed where amazing as well? Where I had the biggest adventure of my travelling while you were sick?
HAHA. Yes, that one… I knew something was wrong when you guys weren’t home yet at 8am..
After travel, I like to come home to a couch. Sounds simple. But sitting on a bed or rock hard chair in a hotel room is taxing.
yeah and if you’re in a hostel, being ALONE on a couch with the ability to lay down and watch a movie is pretty awesome!
This is weird but I really missed sushi.
I miss sushi too!! I missed it so much when I lived in England, that I learned how to make it. It’s also noticeably absent through most of Eastern Europe. I also miss my dog(s)…coming home to them is one of the best things.
Awww pets are the best! I can’t believe they don’t have sushi in most of Eastern Europe though! weird :S
Love, love, love it! Cheers!
I will be coming home to a KING size bed!
Ahhhh any bed is better than most hostel beds!
My very nice pillowtop bed is waiting for us. YES…. and 600 thread count sheets.
I had a few OKAY beds in South America… but nothing beats pillowtop
Well, after my four months on a ship–the first time in five years, I’ve traveled without a phone–I loved coming back to uninterrupted connectivity! Oh, and my puppy, too =)
HAHA… that’s one for the books! Good internet connection!
Whenever I come home from a trip I enjoy being an absolute slob and not having to worry about anybody stealing my stuff 🙂
HAHA… I’m still pretty messy when travelling… if they really want to steal my dirty clothes with holes and tears, they can
When I travel, I dream of my bed.
That seems to be the majority vote!
The pillows on my present bed are wincing in sympathy for you, dear Hogga …
HOW DARE YOU!
