Day 42 – Even The Unemployed Need A Day Off
You probably won’t have noticed our earlier hotel days because they were carefully hidden. The first one was our day at sea while on the cruise. We’d only been on the road nine days at that point and, as it turned out most of the cruise was spent without much to do, it could be argued the whole thing was one long hotel day!
Our second hotel day was in Vegas, but again, as all three days in Sin City were spent chilling out, that one day also blended into our whole time there. Since we left Vegas on day twenty-eight we haven’t had a day off; that means we’ve been travelling non-stop for two weeks. Not that I’m expecting anybody to feel sorry for us of course! But the truth is, if we don’t stop every once in a while there’s a risk we’ll run out of steam.
Today we slept in until noon then went to see about finally getting my hair sorted out. Sadly the salon couldn’t fit me in until the morning, but it’s good to know it’ll finally be taken care of! With our only errand sorted out we made our way to the local cinema and saw ‘The Social Network’; an interesting film about how Facebook got its start. We enjoyed it, although it told me nothing I didn’t already know via a Rolling Stone article a few years ago. It does have a great final moment though.
