No one likes being in the hospital. So why not make it as pleasant as possible?
Once you are out of danger and/or surgery, and in the recovery phase, there are ways to make your stay more comfortable and stress free, and even include some luxurious touches.
What hotel does Oprah stay in? Or Richard Branson? Or Bill Gates? Or Mark Zuckerberg?
They don’t. Well, occasionally they might. But more often, the super-rich stay with their super-rich friends. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay on a private island, in an extravagant ski chalet, at beach and lake houses or city flats?
We do it three times a day, so it might as well be fabulous, fantastic, delicious, delightful. Even if we’re watching our weight. Especially if we’re watching our weight.
Whoever first said that life is like high school all the time sure hit the nail on the head.

I always travel like a millionaire – as in getting to and from a place – but I don’t always “vacation” like a millionaire. I’m perfectly fine with staying in a barebones eco-bungalow on the beach, or taking a rough and tumble road trip through the countryside and finding a B&B for the night.
