As already mentioned, I love to travel. I really do. But in the course of my everyday work, my passion got lost in nirvana. Instead of being far away from home, I now prefer to stay home, go to familiar restaurants and stick to everything that I know. Cuddling with my blanket in my beloved bed… such a nice thought.
But you can’t avoid things, where you know that they are going to happen. Like my last small business trip that I knew would come. But as always: When your expectations are low, you will be surprised. And that was exactly what happened to me. I got to the food hotel in Neuwied. Food is what comes first in this hotel. Okay, not first, but right after the guests.
After I had entered the lobby, I still wasn’t sure what to expect in my room. I took the elevator and found the door with my number on it. I opened the door and what I saw made me smile. My room was named “Prinzenrolle”. A typical cookie that remembers adults of their childhood. It’s a cookie that nearly everyone ate as children: a sweet piece of dough and chocolate in between. Do you know the cookie I’m describing? (Maybe a picture will make you remember). In that room every small detail refers to the cookie. Even the sheets are in a matching colour to the cookies theme. Really adorable. I immediately knew that I would be sleeping quiet good in that bed. So I didn’t waste too much time and went straight to bed.
After smoothly getting up again I went to my business meeting in room 2. Again, I didn’t know, what to expect. But funnily I got surprised again. A meeting room designed like a can. From the outside already the walls looked like a food can. I went through the silver shining door and inside the “can” was a meeting room, with lots of small pieces and can designs. Awesome! To cut a long story short, take a look at the pictures!
I had such a good business trip to Neuwied. Even though I didn’t expect it, it was so good. All the rooms in the food hotel made me feel so comfortable that I didn’t want to leave. Sometimes it helps getting out of your comfort zone to find new things and get surprised.
