As many of you know, I am travelling today to On The Road with Disney Social Media Moms. I had originally planned on bringing my husband and 5 children, but at the last moment, I changed my mind. In light of the change in plans I decided to document my findings on the differences I encountered.
The Best Things About Travelling Alone
I could choose MY radio station.
I LOVE Just 4 Me Songs, but honestly, my kids are listening to personalize Mickey Mouse and Veggie Tales for hours and hours on end, that and Disney Read-Along CDs (currently, Monster’s University, Wreck It Ralph and Brave). I am a big country fan, so I cranked it up LOUD and heard no complaints!
When arriving at my hotel, I made only one trip in from the car.
Let’s face it, kids have STUFF! Some of the stuff that always needs to come to hotels with us include pool toys, entertainment devices, sleep sacs, woombies and of course, my stroller.
These things are very important, but, tonight, I only brought in one carry-on suitcase (and my laptop and camera, I am at a blogging conference).
After checking in, I could head up to my room and just hung out here for a while.
When travelling with the kids, I IMMEDIATELY must change into my swimsuit and check out the pool. I will likely take a calming trip to the Jacuzzi later on, but for now, I can relax, write a post and enjoy some wine.
The whole room doesn’t need to shut down at 830pm.
I can stay up as late as I like, head next door to the casino, enjoy room service, take a bath at 930PM (I know, living life on the wild side).
I have to set the alarm!
Imagine, not being awoken by a child? I know it hasn’t happened to me in about 18 months. And then, only twice. This is one thing that people definitely take for granted! I can’t wait to hear that ‘beep, beep, beep’ in the morning.
I’m curious, what do you look forward to most when you are ALONE?
