When you go away you get to experience a new country and culture and way of doing things but you also miss what you’re used to. Going away always highlights to me my habits and routine, it all gets thrown out of whack when you’re not at home, some examples ….
– getting ready : I have a set routine in the mornings, I have a shower, put on make up, straighten hair and get dressed then eat breakie. I have s full length mirror in my room I use and a set area for getting ready. On holiday all the mirrors are wrong, there’s no plug sockets near them or the lighting isn’t right. In Paris, our hotel room was really dark, I couldn’t see my clothes of make up!
The water is also different, always makes my hair softer prob it’s hard in London but it means my hair is much harder to style!
– drinks: at home I keep a bottle of tap water in the fridge, I hate warm drinks and drink loads of water. On holiday, there’s never any water in the room and they charge loads in minibar so you have to keep remembering to bottles and they get warm! Also you can never get a good cup of tea outside UK, I don’t drink loads but it’s nice on a cold morning but no chance on holiday.
– TV: I always put breakfast TV on while I get ready, I like to hear news and weather but away you miss out and live in a bubble until you get home or can find a newspaper. I also read the Metro, a free paper on the train and I miss the daily dose of news and celeb gossip 🙂
– breakfast: in the week I have cereal but at weekend I like eggs and bacon. In Europe it’s not a big deal, in Paris it was a crossiant and drink on the menu. At least in America they like their hot breakfast too, it’s nice to splurge on holiday!
What habit do you miss on holiday?
