Over the last 4 or 5 years we have stayed in over 70 hotels with my husband. Once you are in the hotel business you have an attraction towards hotels.
Since we actually live in the hotel my husband currently runs, I suppose we notice things that others might not.
For example, I can clearly see that our hotel has a kiddy pool and a room for kids to play in but I would lie if I would say it is always easy for me to look after Zoard in this hotel.
To be fair, we stay in the same room and that room happens to be super close to the restaurant and the pool which I love. But two days ago the hotel had an over booking because of a mistake a booking company’s system had. This means we had to move out of our room to another one because there is a full house and the guests wanted a room type that is like the one we live in.
At the same time, this blog is about our everyday life so perhaps it is nice to see it from my point of view. And though, I admit we live in Paradise, I do not always find it easy to be here without family or friends to help out.
I assume there are places on our planet where air pollution is pretty bad and there are no playgrounds or “safe spaces” for little ones. For example, this picture might make you think that Zoard can freely play on the grass but that is not so. The whole hotel is on a mountain so if he would step out on the road he would fall because it is steep almost everywhere.
A friend of mine asked me in an email why I don’t take Zoard to the gym where he can safely run around (or dance as seen on this picture). The gym is great but my friend forgot about one thing: there are others around us who pay to have a relaxing, nice time here so I am not going to let Zoard run around when others are trying to have a nice time working on their figure…
Naturally, Zoard thinks the whole hotel is his playground. And he loves the golf carts that take the guests up and down… We call them buggies. It is part of Zoard’s vocabulary. Besides the words car, truck, big truck, van, trolley, bike, airplane… Yes, maybe I could write a post about Zoard’s talking… HAHA
How satisfied are You with the area you live in? Where do your kids do the most climbing, running, exploring?
