Travel 101.... come prepared with the little things you need. Ear plugs are a good idea for a good nights sleep. I like dark rooms and quiet to sleep. I was once teaching at a beautiful country manor in the UK, so peaceful. Next morning at breakfast I noticed one of my students was a wreck. Upon enquiry she found it tooooooo quiet and dark! Next night she left low music playing and bathroom light on and slept like a babe. Travel gives us opportunities to learn more about ourselves as well as the big, wide world out there.
