Home, Sweet Home

You may have noticed my absence for a few days.  I have been in Sydney for work but am now safely home.

2015-08-20 01I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel.  Depending on which site you read it is 4 or 5 star.  However, I found much of the experience over-the-top and excessive.  The lighting in the foyer would illuminate an entire village in a Third World country.  The extravagance was overwhelming and I can honestly say that I am relieved to be home.  Give me the simple life any day.

There seems to be an ever-increasing competition between luxury hotel brands to outdo the opposition so this type of experience is not limited to this particular hotel.  I wonder how many people actually find this appealing.

What are your thoughts and experiences?

I have not totally forgotten you all but I have been busy with other stuff.  I travelled interstate for family reasons and then had a work conference to attend so I have not been hanging out in The Castle much lately.

However, I am back and will be putting the finishing touches to our property in preparation for Sustainable House Day on Sunday.

You may also have noticed that I have added a link ‘Accommodation at The Castle’ at the top of the blog.  This will take to links to our AirBnB entry for our guest room.

I hope to be back with a ‘real’ post before too long.

Thanks for your patience.
