During the middle of the summer my wife had to travel to Hong Kong for very important business matters. Our two children, ages ten and seven, wanted to go as well. Being a freelance writer, I was prepared to pull double duty taking care of the kids and working from my home office. After all, my wife does it all the time.
She suggested that we all travel with her. My first thought was how uncomfortable the children would be in a hotel. They would be confined in a small area. My ability to focus would be diminished. Most importantly, my wife’s ability to focus on those business matters may be compromised.
In the end, our trip provided a wonderful family experience. With great Hong Kong hotels to choose from, we easily found one that lifted, relaxed, and inspired us all. It was like being at home with excellent upgrades.
