I hate travelling, continued
I am currently in Norway for a customer. Last night I was in the Ambassador Hotel in Drammen
. I sucked - stay away! First I was in a room that was extremely loud, the trucks practically drove through the room. I asked for another room a minute after I arrived and they said they had no other room. Two hours later, after I tried in vain to sleep, I called the reception: "I want another room or I will leave the hotel". Then they had one....! I changed.
Of course I forgot my notebook power cord in the room, which meant I had to go back to the room the next morning. I asked at the reception to have them go into the room and grab the cable - they refused: "there's somebody else in there". I knocked at the room door 10 times, no reaction. They still said "somebody in there" and refused to let me in, "the person must be at breakfast". I asked everybody at breakfast. Nobody was in the room. After a long while I convinced a cleaning lady to let me in. It was empty. I got my cable. Of course I missed the train to the customer....
Next day, better hotel, Scandic Hotel in Asker. Nice room. Quiter. Of course at 21:40 a group of guests started dancing and singing outside the hotel in front of my room. No sleep, again.
I HATE TRAVELLING!!! I guess I really have to make sure that I have to travel less. The plan was to travel <= 50% as part of my work for itemis. However, as a consequence of the current economic situation I guess I have to travel more (again...).
Next year will be different! I promise (to myself)!
