On Monday we were taken on a tour. A tour around a building I have never ever set foot in before but where I will soon be residing for a whole week. Modern and only completed a few years ago, it towers above you like some huge ships funnel. It is a very busy building, well used with lot’s of people entering and leaving via its various exits and not only via the ground floor. A lovely lady by the name of Penny was our tour guide for the day. She was dressed in a fetching blue outfit, and was all smiles as she showed us around the very attractive surroundings.
There are single bedrooms complete with en suite bathrooms and which contain fully adjustable electric beds that allow you to adjust them to many different positions for your comfort and some of the bedrooms are for sharing. It’s all so luxurious. The corridors are all painted in an attractive off white which is liberally broken up by lot’s of paintings hanging on the walls. Where the residents sit down to eat, there is a full length window which reaches from floor to ceiling and offers a breathtaking view of the busy and bustling city. I took notice that all of the staff, also clad in blue, seemed friendly and eager to please any of the current residents as we toured around admiring the sleek modern lines and clean pristine look.
We were both very impressed, so much so that I am quite looking forward to my own temporary residency there next week. It will be a new adventure, a new experience and certainly one worth blogging about on my return.
