my hotel must-haves and a travel tip
Peggy and I are back from California. Summer travel is pretty much finished for me.
After living in hotel rooms for three of the last four weeks, I would like to share with you my top three hotel room must-haves:
1. Free WiFi. In the room. Not someplace “in the lobby.”
3. A minimum of two pillows per person, preferably with an extra one or two.
Obviously I’m not counting clean and comfortable rooms and a courteous and helpful staff as must-haves, those are “you better have that or I’m not staying here.”
My three “must-haves” are the things that really make me happy that I picked a particular place to stay. If they are missing, it makes me sorry I didn’t find someplace else to rest my head.
As for my travel tip, it involves your bottles of liquids. I’m sure we all put our liquids in zip-lock bags to prevent them from leaking on our clothes, luggage and other valuables. Mine still often oozed a bit and leaked in the zip-lock bag.
Now I place a small piece of plastic wrap between the top of the bottle and the lid, then screw on the lid tightly, no more oozing and leaks.
This is all well and good when you’re packing your bags at home, but what about for the trip back home? Those little pieces of plastic wrap get all gooey or lost. No worries, I have the answer for you.
As you travel, collect the shower caps and tear or cut them into pieces to use in place of the plastic wrap.
Works like a dream! What are your hotel must-haves or YOUR best travel tips?
