Last Winter, I took our family to a tropical island for several days on trip. The two of us were eager to escape the freezing & snow, & take advantage of the sunshine & ocean waves. The two of us wanted to be situated as close to the beach as possible. Unfortunately, the resorts with beach access are super costly. I found cheaper accommodations which didn’t provide all the current luxuries. The two of us didn’t have access to tennis courts, fitness center, onsite dining, or a heated swimming pool. Since the people I was with and I didn’t plan on spending much time in the hotel, the people I was with and I weren’t sad about it. On the first day, the people I was with and I headed to the beach entirely early in the day, & dedicated the entire day to suntanning, swimming & building sand castles. Although the people I was with and I made sure to apply sunblock, our whole family ended up with horrible sunburns. The two of us were harshly grateful that our cheaper hotel at least gave air conditioning. The air conditioning was undoubtedly aged & not in the greatest shape. The component was dented & most of the control knobs were missing. It was noisy, dripped water onto the carpet, & the air smelled rather musty. The two of us were simply cheerful that the aged component gave an ample supply of freezing air. The two of us set the temperature control as low as possible & took turn kneeling directly in front of the vents. Our sunburns forced us to spend a wonderful deal of time in the room, enjoying television, playing cards, & taking cool showers. There was hardly any water pressure, lumpy pillows & scratchy sheets, however the air conditioning continued to blast freezing air, so the people I was with and I were satisfied.
