The Tryst

Be kind to your mother in law,

but pay for her board at some good hotel.

Now that the kids are home for the summer, I find myself imagining the thrill of a tryst with my man or, at least, being someplace quiet by myself.   A hotel room can be a sanctuary to get away from it all, a cocoon for a private adventure where you can disappear and pretend to be unfindable.  The bed is a blank canvas where a new story awaits to be written.  And at the very least, the simple pleasures of 24/7 room service and clean, crisp sheets we don’t have to launder are extremely sexy–even if the kids must come along!

Click on “Leave a Comment” (above left) to add your tips for snagging a fabulous deal at your favorite destination:

1. Loyalty pays.  Avail of perks and benefits of hotel membership which usually costs nothing to join.  Even if you don’t have elite status, it never hurts to ask.  Club Floor rates may be higher but they can offer real value.

2. Bundles. Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity could save you up to 20% when you bundle hotel and flight bookings.  If like me, you like variety in hotel brands, Expedia has its own loyalty program where you earn points for airfare, hotel, and car rentals through their site.

3. Social Media.  Use Twitter to search ongoing deals (enter the hotel name and “deal”).  Introduce yourself with a “Like” or announce your enthusiasm for your upcoming visit on the hotel’s Facebook page.

    A “Tryst”, my first thought was a movie, “An Affair To Remember” with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant. There have been many versions made, to me this one is the best.They find each other on an ocean cruise to Europe and after returning and are still in love after six months they promise to meet at the top of the Empire State Building at a spicific day and time. But Cary is left waiting…and waiting, sadly his love never comes. A touching moment is when they finely do meet again. Cary in his gentlemanly style is mad but polite and as he is about to walk out her door, suddenly it dawns on him (I won’t give it away) the reason she was not at their rendezvous. You’ll have to see the movie to appreciate that moment. Enjoy.

    Ahhhh, a freshly made bed with crisp sheets, cool to the body as you lie there with your lover, nice to feel in any destination. Thank you, Sharky for painting a picture that takes us away. It’s time for some reservations and…a nap? 😉

    Number two, I always love your use of mirrors! Funny how the mind works, for a moment I actually thought there were two lamps.
