I don't get out of town often. I'm not a world traveler. I am easily amused and entertained.

Our trip to Portland was wonderful. We stayed in a very nice hotel in the downtown area. I was entertained by the innovative way the space of the room was used. Here you see what appears to be the doorless bathroom.

But the door to the closet doubles as a door for the bathroom!!!!!

When we opened the drawer to the bedstand between the beds, expecting to find the proverbial Gideon Bible we discovered a safe instead! Actually we were looking for the remote control.

So much for the concept of "In God We Trust". As I said, I'm easily amused.

I fell in love with the wonderful pillows -- each of us had FOUR of them. They were fully stuffed and much better quality than the ones I own. The bedding was the European type (I know this only from what I've read not because I've experience it) and the television was a large flat screen model. All much nicer than I have at home. I felt very pampered.

Sounds like a great getaway..I am hotel paranoid these days..I have heard so much on t.v. about bed bugs that are making a resurgence in the good old I check the way they taught on tv...but I am still a bit nervous..heard they are horrendous to get rid of..makes my few slugs---etc...sound like nothing..
we are due for some time away..but this home is needing lots of it will probably be the STAY-cation....
