If you are the type of person who is regimented and never wants to vary from a plan, world travel is actually not for you. Your expectations and the reality are seldom the same. The two of us learned this lesson well on our first trip to Europe. The two of us are people who care about to experience modern and exciting locales so we booked a trip to go backpacking through the English countryside. The two of us booked rooms at hostiles and small cottages along the way because we honestly didn’t want to spend the time finding campgrounds. It was going to be the heat of warm season so we wanted to make sure that each locale had some sort of cooling system. The two of us learned that one person’s opinion of a cooling system is absolutely odd from others. One stop we made said that they no longer offered a/c because they equipment had broken and they never bothered to update the listing online. They offered us a rusty old fan to use for the night and we had no choice however to accept the offer. The next afternoon we made a PC call to the hostile which was our next stop. The two of us wanted to make sure that they actually had the a/c that was featured. It was a good thing we did because they only had ice box fans that they used for cooling the sleeping quarters. Our smartphones came in handy that afternoon because we searched for an actual hotel in the same area. After spending the night separate from much sleep we just wanted an air conditioned room with a clean, tepid shower and comfortable beds.
