I Thought I Was Low Maintenance

I don’t consider myself to be high maintenance when traveling.

  • I don’t care about traveling first class, I’m not a picky eater, and as long as I have a bed to sleep in, I’m happy! I think I’m an easy going guest.

However, my low maintenance was tested last weekend when I went to visit my brother in his new apartment. There was an extra bedroom for me to stay in, which I thought was really nice. I assumed that I’d have to sleep on the couch or on an air mattress, which I was fine with. When my brother told me that his roommate would be gone the same weekend though, I was given permission to stay in his room. This was wonderful news and I was excited about sleeping in an actual bed. What I wasn’t expecting though, was how hot it was inside the bedroom. There was something wrong with the HVAC system in the apartment, because my brother’s roommate’s bedroom was a few degrees warmer than the rest of the apartment and you could definitely tell. I wasn’t worried about the temperature difference until it was time for bed. I’m someone who prefers to sleep in a cooler environment and I knew I wouldn’t get much rest with the bedroom being so warm. I slipped out in the middle of the night and tried to adjust the temperature, but I couldn’t locate the thermostat anywhere. In the morning, I complained about how hot it was and told my brother that I’d have to sleep on the couch the following night. I guess I do care about something when it comes to traveling after all.
