But, there is another way.
If you stay in hotels as most of us do, they always, or nearly always, provide you with several very important items that can give us a little reminder of where we been and the associated memories, whether good or bad, but hopefully good.
The first is a writing pad and pen. You don’t get much paper on that pad so it’s only good for writing down plot points, if you’re a writer like me, particularly if you’re in an overseas location.
The second is the toiletries, like hair shampoo and conditioner, along with other items, like soap and bath gel. These invariably have the hotel name and sometimes location on them, but often the hotel name is all that is needed.
Of course, some hotels are different, like the Hilton, because every Hilton has the same pen and the same toiletries, so with these hotels, you’re going to have to have a good memory, or as I do, take the pad. It has the hotel’s address.
With other hotels, like the Bruneschelli in Florence, or the Savoir in Venice, they have their name on both.
Some people will use the toiletries and therefore will not have a keepsake reminder, or they may not see the use in taking the pen or the pad that comes with the room, but I suggest you do.
Then, when you least expect it, there will be that little reminder of where you go been and hopefully, it will bring back good memories, and that, for me, is on the shower.
