I workout while our bestie relaxes

I recently took a ten-day getaway overseas, and I loved every minute of it! I am unlike most people, in that I’m really like two people at once. See, some mornings I will get up and get a cup of coffee, read some stuff online and spend an hour or so just relaxing by my coffee maker in case I want another mug. Other days, I get out of bed at six in the morning, and lace up my sneakers for a workout! So for that reason, travel can be a challenge. My priorities change in the wind at times, as I want to regularly find a hotel that includes a gym. However, I also want to find a hotel that’s close to museums, local cuisine, and live music. If the hotel has no kind of fitness center, I then have to go for a long run if I wake up feeling “active”. I’m done with the workout and by then, I might turn back into the “lazy” version of myself. From there, I shower and get packed up to start my day’s adventure – though I have to plan for either possible scenario. I get frustrated that I sometimes want to stop for a meal and waste time trying dessert, as I just spent the morning running around! Thankfully, I found a hotel and resort that was connected to some hot springs. The spot chosen also had a huge fitness space, equipped with all sorts of current equipment. With so many treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes and rowing machines to choose from, I knew that I was set. With the full gym and hot springs waiting for us, I knew I would have a fun time no matter how active or lazy I was feeling.
