Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
Well, this has been a long week. I’m at 5 weeks straight on the road, one more week yet to go, at least. And then we start back up in Cincinnati again.
No new photos this week, but I was digging through some old photos and found several shots of hotel rooms I’ve stayed in. American hotel rooms are enormous compared to European rooms. I’ve had some rooms on European business trips that might make good walk-in closets…if you knocked down a couple of walls.
First, Las Vegas! We stayed at the Rio and the rooms were bigger than my first apartment, and had a nicer kitchen. I’m actually standing in the middle of the room — the desk is off to my right and the couch, 2 chairs, coffee table and tv are behind me.
Next, a decent-sized hotel in Hengelo, a small town in The Netherlands. I only ended up with this room because we misunderstood the price on the website. We thought it was in US dollars. Turns out, it was in Euros. Ouch. Note the interesting bed: most double beds in European hotels are actually two single beds. Apparently, they think even married people don’t sleep close together!
And finally, the tiniest of them all. This was taken in the hotel I stayed in during my last work visit to Amsterdam. It was ridiculously tiny, but the hotel has such a great location that I put up with sleeping in a broom closet for several days. Seriously, this is all there was to the room. You can’t see the door of the bathroom, but you’re looking at the whole room.
