I’m quite happy with a white, fluffy king-sized bed, and a hotel that provides a quality hairdryer. Can’t remember the last time I packed a hairdryer.

The bear had his own security guard. Go figure.

What’s your favorite stormy weather eat or drink?

What about your favorite stormy weather activity?

I like a little of everything – cuddling up inside, playing games, watching movies, and getting outside to explore and feel the weather.
