Exploring Our Condo – The Only Place to Travel During the COVID19 Panic

Considering travel to anywhere is pretty much obsolete at this point, I decided to explore my home. I spend so much time working that I don’t spend a ton of time here. Well, in the past week I’ve uncovered and traveled to every nook and cranny.

Baby’s Room

 I thought baby’s room would be really soothing and comforting – so I started off there. I’ll be honest – it wasn’t exactly what I imagined. There is only one local living there and he speaks the indigenous language of baby’s room – so it was difficult to communicate. He seemed pretty demanding. I’m not one to disrespect the culture and people of a destination. However, the inhabitant of baby’s room…was a little stinky. I announced I wouldn’t be staying, and he seemed indifferent to losing my business. He was way too focused with picking up a single cheerio.

The clothing worn by the local in baby’s room.

Living Room

This part of the condo might be my favorite. It has a lot of offer and you’re never really bored. I was able to work on my laptop, do some exercise, watch TV, and hang out on the giant “L” shaped couch that is offered to guests for relaxation. I will definitely be visiting this part of the condo again, probably at least 3,000 times before the pandemic is over 10/10!

Restroom

I’d say this area was about average – not great/not terrible. If I had to describe my experience in the restroom with one word – practical. I’ve heard some restrooms have TOO much toilet paper during this pandemic – others, not enough. I’d say this restroom had an average amount. The latest travel trend is washing hands – and the restroom offered a space for doing that called the sink. My hands felt incredibly clean afterwards, and the smell of the soap offered was divine. 

The soap that is on offer when visiting the restroom.

Bedroom

My heart goes out to the people who live in bedroom. It had clearly been ravaged by a tornado seconds before I landed and arrived. There were clothes, accessories, and belongings scattered around like a war zone. My husband pledged to do everything he can to help with the disaster relief efforts. He doesn’t know that yet, but he’s going to do that

Utter and complete chaos abound. Thoughts and prayers to the inhabitants of bedroom.

Kitchen

Without a doubt, the best place to grab a quick bite in the condo is the kitchen. Kitchen’s menu is centered around a nonperishable cuisine concept. Kitchen employees take a “grab whatever the fuck is left approach” when considering what to bring each week into their eatery. One of my favorite dishes is their Kraft Deluxe Easy mac. Most restaurants can take upwards of 20 minutes from ordering to getting your food. From the minute I decided I was hungry to eating the Easy Mac took about three minutes in total. Other popular items on the menu include Top Ramen, canned soup, frozen chicken breasts (put your order in ahead of time for that one) and Quest Bars. 

Love the nonperishable concept that Kitchen uses to build its menu. Highly suggest the Kraft Easy Mac

  1. Great information for anyone making pandemic-related travel plans. Just be aware, if you put together a follow up piece, you may want readers to know the US government has issued a travel advisory regarding the health and safety concerns you face when visiting “teenager’s room.”

  2. This definitely gave me a good laugh! “My husband pledged to do everything he can to help with the disaster relief efforts.” Also loved the commentary on the local clothing in the Baby’s room. Thanks for making me giggle 🙂

  3. Omg! This is such a hilarious take on the staying home concept!

    I think a lot of restrooms have over compensated on the toilet paper 😂😂

    Oh and my condo kitchen sounds very similar to the grab whatever is available approach 😉

    Great, funny and refreshing read.

  4. Looking forward to making another visit to the baby room once the travel ban is lifted. I have been learning the indigenous language of the baby room and hoping to get along with the human living there.

  5. Lol this really made me smile thanks for cheering us all up with your long distance travel adventures. 😀

  6. Love this post! And I have to say, at least you’ve a condo to explore! We only have a 1-bedroom apartment, but we do have a river view and a terrace so it’s not all bad. Thanks for the shot of the baby’s nappy too lol!

  7. Haha! Your post made me smile and inspired me to do a house tour tomorrow no matter how small it is. Time to check on the small details at home. 🙂

  8. Yep, that’s all we can explore these days: our own apartments and houses. Hopefully this horrible crisis will be gone by summer, so that we can resume our travel plans.

  9. Waw, you have such a big house compared to mine. I live in two rooms and a big balcony at the moment. But it is true I have a big garden in from of the building, a river crossing by, and stunning views of the Romanian mountains. On the other hand, I am grateful for all this time I have now because I can work on project I have been putting of for a long time. But let’s hope that this is going to be over soon.

  10. Actually, a good idea. Spring cleaning a few of my cupboards could be done now that I have time. Have been avoiding them for a while. Your bedroom story is pretty much similar to my own, especially my daughter’s. In fact, she got an earful today about it 😉

  11. Hahaha! This is so clever and entertaining. I’d say this kinda goes along with our own life motto that Adventure is all around us, it is just a matter of perspective. I think you’ve clearly demonstrated that with this article. PS-Yesss to Easy Mac…although Velveeta shells are a close contender.

  12. Loved your post about knowing our home as at present situation we have not to step out. Your condo looks amazing as it looks very spacious. Yes sometimes ready to eat food or frozen food in kitchen is a big savior and also saves lot of time in cooking.

  13. I too have been exploring locally. I unearthed ancient treasures in a remote region called the basement storage/utility room. These relics will soon be on display at a premier Goodwill location!
