Weekly Photography Challenge: Inside

I had to wait until late Sunday night to find out that this weeks Challenge theme is Inside, because I was travelling with no internet access. So it seems appropriate to share some travel pics from The Trip Of A Lifetime – the beds in all the hotel rooms we stayed in for our month in the lovely Pacific Northwest. At last I have a reason for taking them!

Fundamentally, a hotel room (or other accommodation), is just a place to sleep and keep your stuff inside while you explore the area and see the sights. But without that little place of refuge inside your room, the joys of travel would be very much diminished. If only American hotel rooms had a kettle inside them, as well as or instead of the coffee machine, a person could enjoy a nice cup of tea! In Portland, in a moment of reckless desperation, I tried making tea by running water through the machine, sans coffee. It sort of worked, but the resulting tea had a taint of coffee, which was…interesting.
