Road to the Inn
I have strange feelings sometimes when approaching new hotels. I stay in a lot of them, but there are certain times of the day and night when you are going some place quite foreign and you’re just not sure what it will be like.
A good example is this place here in Iceland, where everything can be doubly strange. I’ve had many strange experiences from sleeping in school classrooms (they are converted to hotels in the summer) to having to wake up someone at 2 AM to let me into a room.
Even though Iceland is so mountainous, sometimes there are wide open plains where you can see the destination from miles and miles away as you get closer. And all the strange thoughts (especially very late at night) go racing through your head. It’s all kind of Twilight Zone-ish.
