Vacation promises

My husband and I are off for our first vacation in nine years with just the two of us and I'm having a hard time being Zen about it. He was making racy comments about spending little time outside our hotel room and I laughed. First, I'm planning to squeeze in as much shopping as I can. Secondly, we have never had a vacation that involved much sex. Not our honeymoon, not our weekend getaways before our daughter was born.

I'm HL but I never felt sexy on vacation. It's the hotel sex thing for me. I just keep thinking someone else probably had sex in this room. That kinda does me in! Even if you stay in a five star hotel. That is what I think about. Not too sexy! I just got back form Italy. Mrs. Italy and I took the Girls and they had their own room. So in Venice we were alone. What is more romantic than Venice?! She got a " little frisky" but I just couldn't. "The Hotel thing" and we stayed in a really nice hotel!


Where are you going? If I were you I would just shop, relax and have fun! I would tell your husband he is stressing you out and if he wants to start taking vacations "alone" he should continue with the " racy comments". He should just go with what happens. If you two do it fine. If you don't have fun anyway. Vacations don't have to be about SEX!


Ciao

...so, if you went on vacation with me and I wiped down the entire headboard or wall above the bed and removed the existing bedding replacing it with my own (brought from home...domestic vacations only of course..)and I cleaned the bathroom a little before it was used you would not think that I was nuts?...or, even if you found me nuts you wouldn't laugh?...Diane Sawyer did a segment once concerning the cleanliness of hotels...she tested rooms in what are considered the best of American hotels, middle priced hotels and hotels like Motel 8 and Holiday Inn...when the lights dimmed and blue went on...biological "leavings" were everywhere and the worst...across the board were the better hotels...

I would not think you are nuts. I will not stay in a Hotel with a colored pattern on the bed ( they don't wash them) all the bedding has to be white. I go in and pull all the bedding back with the bell

They don't bother to the point I will not stay BUT I'm picky. Like I said ONLY white bed linens. I would never touch the phone. I just cannot feel sexual in a hotel.

...me too, I haven't stopped traveling because I am grossed out by the idea of a dirty room...I just take a few precautions...and, I have to have my own pillows...

I had to go to horse show with my daughters. None of the hotels would accommodate my wishes so I slept on the sheet in a sleeping bag with my own pillow!


My last trip to Italy was great. I called all the Hotels ahead of time. White everything! I would take a pillow but it's to hard to carry-on and I don't check baggage (another Story)
