I am a very light sleeper and I am afraid I will not get any rest while we are gone. I don’t want to hurt her feelings or cause any conflict, but I would really like to get my own room. Any advice on how to approach this conversation? Sincerely~Light Sleeper
Dear Light Sleeper
That is a common problem among friends, family and groups that travel together. I would suggest you have the discussion about separate rooms and just mention you are a light sleeper and the smallest of noise wakes you up. If cost is an issue and you have already made the reservations, you might have to take this one on the chin and bring it up when you are planning the next trip.
I always suggest friends have these conversations during the planning stage to avoid any awkwardness once reservations are made and money has been paid. Hope this helps and rest well.
