There’s someone sleeping in my bed… yes, a dozen pillows.
So as I sit precariously on the edge of the bed in my new chilly billet waiting to get in… here are my fave places I’ve laid down my head.
Never getting up again
Castara Retreats, Tobago https://castararetreats.com And a hammock on your balcony.
Remember to light your anti-mosquito candle.
Alternatively just sleep out in the open as Robinson Crusoe on the beaches… you won’t go cold.
Hamburg, Germany: This was made for me.
No long walks home or trying to hail a taxi in the cold.
Just sleep off your hamburger and beer in The Strand Pauli Beach Bar https://www.strandpauli.de.
And relive it in Hamburgers and ships.
Uncle Jim’s Cabin
MSC Preziosa, the Norwegian fjords: And as you can see I’ve got the pillows off... out of picture, on The Scary One’s side.
Get yourself an infinity cabin for extra space where the balcony door disappears into the sides to give you more room.
Lie back and think of Jordan
Aqaba: Yes, you’ll go flat on your back on the Dead Sea.
And flat on your tummy, snorkelling in the Red Sea.
So after your Shisha pipe snd Turkish tea, and maybe a game of chess or backgammon with a local, it’s time for…
No drama on Kythera
El Sol Hotel, Kythera, Greece: Now you’ll not need many covers on your bed in your island of Kythera bedroom in sunny Greece.
The family-run El Sol hotel is a million miles away from the big multinational hotels.
And it has breathtaking views and a swimming pool you can almost into from your room.
MEET YOU ON… WELL, ON SECOND THOUGHTS
