Rarely, if ever, is staying away from home immensely pleasurable for me. Over the years, I’ve learned to make my lodgings the least of my expectations — following close behind unreliable flight departure times. As a result I can sleep soundly as long as darkness envelopes me and I am content if some means of sanitation is available.
