Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

omg, omg, omg!!!

We are staying at the PanPacific Hotel in Vancouver, BC.  It's right at the cruise ship dock. This is the third time we have stayed here for just one night.  This is the second time they have given us a mind-blowing upgrade.  We are in - get this - the Jade Suite!  It has a 180 degree view of the bay and the city.  It has a sitting room with a desk at one end, a dining table at the other end, and two sofas and a comfy lounge chair in between.  There's a half bath to go with the sitting room, and a big screen TV.  Then there's the bedroom with about an acre of snowy linen, windows looking out over the bay, a mountain of pillows, and of course, the big screen TV to watch from bed.

And then there's the bathroom.  With the sunken, jetted tub which also has a view over the bay. And enough fluffy white terrycloth to polish an elephant.  They provide a couple of thick toweling robes, just the thing to wear while I'm doing my face at the marble vanity in its own, separate, carefully lighted little alcove.

Oh, I forgot the balcony.  You could skateboard on this balcony.  It wraps around the face of the hotel and has about as much square footage as our living room at home.  It has chaise lounges and potted pine trees and breath-taking, breath-taking, astounding views!  We are so awe struck by this room that we have decided not to go out for dinner but instead, to go nuts and order room service.  I can't bear to leave!

Until tomorrow, of course.  That's when we get on the cruise ship for four days of luxury at sea.  No views for us on board.  We have an inside cabin.  Four days of pampering for a bit more than $300 per person.  All the food we can eat, free room service, entertainment, and not having to make the bed.  ohhh, yeeeesssss!

I'm taking pictures, but still too dim to get them onto the blog.

    Too bad this is for only one night. That is luxury one could get used to very quickly.
