Sometimes I wish I had the ability to just fly away….
I don’t like hotel rooms. God knows I’ve stayed in enough of them, though. It always happens! I get that damn feeling every time. I check in, step into the elevator, walk up to my room door, put in the key or swipe the key-card, enter and then walk to the bed. I place my bags on the bed and just stand there for a few seconds looking around. It’s at that point that the feeling hits. LONELYNESS! :-(
I always sit down like in the photo you see here and think for a few minutes. I don’t think about anything in particular. Just whatever comes to mind. After a few minutes I begin to unpack. I have an aversion to hotel rooms because at times I feel like I’m the only person in the world stuck inside one tiny room forever without any doors or windows as the walls begin to close in on me. No, I’m not some Looney-Toons freak. I’m not even claustrophobic. Just lonely…
I’m not always alone, though, but these times are few and far between. One year while flying into Sarajevo, Bosnia, I was forced to stay a night in London. I had booked a flight on Air Bosna from Chicago to Sarajevo. Well, and I bullsh*! you not, while flying over the North Atlantic Ocean to a connecting flight at Gatwick, mid flight, Air Bosna decides to go out of business. When I landed and tried to board my paid for Air Bosnia flight, a direct flight from Gatwick to Sarajevo, I was informed of the unfortunate news. I was also told that I was on my own with no chance of a refund, no flight voucher, hotel voucher, no nothing. Air Bosnia quit to exist and there was nothing I could do but purchase another ticket out of the UK or apply for a British immigration visa.
Highly upset, to put if very mildly, I bought a new ticket. While standing in line to get this ticket I became more and more upset. By the time I got to the ticket counter I might as well have been at war with the world. The ticket agent, I soon would learn, might as well had been at war with those standing in line waiting to be helped!!!
I was told I had a four hour layover in Ljubljana. I had never heard of this place and had no idea where it was so I asked. Hahaha! Man, you would have thought I just slapped the ticket agent right in the face. She started screaming at me saying I was just another typical American, ignorant and oblivious to the world around me outside of the United States. “You Americans are so Geographically blind!” I swear, she literally screamed that at me.
I just stood there a bit shocked at first but then I began to become a bit amused. After she was done with her insulting attack I asked her if she had ever heard of New Braunfels, Texas or Hernando, Mississippi or even Corpus Christi, Texas. She stated no, of course. I raised my voice a little bit as I leaned over the counter closer to here and said, “then how in the hell am I ignorant and stupid because I don’t know where some tiny city known as Ljubljana, Slovenia is located! She tried not to crack a smile but, it was too late, I had seen it. ;-)
I asked her where she was from. She told me Somalia originally but had been in the UK for over 10 years. I asked here what time she got off work. I then told her I had a reservation at the Gatwick Airport Hotel asking her to accompany me to dinner at the hotel restaurant. She looked at me with suspicious eyes but said she would be there.
After checking in I went through my routine: walk in, look around, sit on the bed and think for a few minutes then unpack. I took a shower, put on some fresh clothes after hitting them with an iron and went down to the restaurant. I really had a nice time and it felt good to actually be sitting with someone talking rather than drinking by myself in that damn room. After dinner two were sharing a drink in that damn room…
After this experience I dislike hotel rooms even more. Throughout my travels me meeting someone like this has only happened once. And I cannot bring myself to call a prostitute. I just can’t do it. The only time I did something like that was in Seattle on a job. I had a partner who wanted to stop at this “spa”. Well, the spa turned out to be a whore-house and I got a “massage” only - that was as far as it went. Hey, stop looking at me like that! I’m serious! This was when I was in my early 20s and I truly didn’t know it was a whore-house…initially. I left 100 dollars poorer feeling like I had made a mistake.
When I end up in a hotel it is usually (99.9%) because I have to be there for one reason or another - not by choice. I just don’t like them! They are the most lonely and depressing walls to have to be surrounded by…
Sometimes as I sit on the bed thinking, I wish I had the ability to just fly away….
But at least now I know where Ljubljana is! ;-)
BA Flight 149 Kuwait City
A shot of BA flight 149 though the windows of the terminal building at Kuwait City airport. This was the plane that was delayed and then directed to land at Kuwait City with spec ops and intelligence personnel onboard during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. They disappeared into the shadows on landing and the passengers left from onboard became part of Saddams human shield. UK government took the decision to send the flight in with full knowledge that Iraqi forces were in Kuwait and that the passengers onboard were at risk of being detained by the Iraqis. This was established during legal proceedings made against the UK government by US passengers that were onboard the flight. The UK government paid out compensation to these passengers for their suffering. UK citizens onboard are still to receive satisfaction.
