I think I’m in love with my hotel room. I walk in and the lights turn on one by one as I enter the room. The first time we met, I was welcomed by fresh fruit on the table and a view of the city. Yes, I think the room was trying to woo me and it worked.
Add the large flat screen TV, the touchscreen monitor that controls the curtains, lights, music (that you can pipe into the bathroom) and well… perfection.
Oh wait, did I tell you about the seat warmer on the toilet, the marble bathroom with a huge tub and separate shower, and all the toiletries by L’Occitane?
In other words, I feel spoiled in this luxurious place. Seems too nice for someone like me. But I admit after a long day of meetings, it’s a nice place to lay my head and get ready for the next day. For the last couple days I’ve been running around with the other fellows… like to the Blue House (home of the Korean President).
The group of journalists I’m traveling with are really awesome – definitely a smart group with great personalities. (Note: that photo above are not the journalists but it’s a group of random tourists taking a photo — I couldn’t help but take a photo of someone taking a photo. I think it’s my new theme on this trip.)
Last night (and tonight) I had a chance to walk around Myeongdong and meander through the pedestrian streets.
Looks like I’m in Seoul for another night after tonight – then I’m off to the south with the other fellows. So I suppose this means I can’t get too attached to my hotel room. But first, I’m going to enjoy this view as I organize the thoughts in my head and my notes from my meetings.
