Does your bathing suit typically get packed in your suitcase no matter where you are traveling to? I have to confess that even though I travel almost every week, I do not even think about packing my bathing suit unless I’m heading to a warm location and on vacation.
Many women (and men) toss their bathing suit into their luggage no matter where they are heading and no matter what the reason for travel. Many use swimming as their mode of exercise while staying in a hotel. Me – I always pack my workout clothes. Whether I actually work out in my workout clothes, though, is not always the case. Most hotels I stay at have a pool … I just never think to use it. I need to rethink my workout strategy, as a good swim is a great workout.
I can understand getting into an indoor pool when the temperature is low, but this Floridian cannot at all comprehend getting into an outdoor pool If the temperature is below 75(F) degrees. So I was shocked to see not just one, not two, but many people in the pool in 20(F) degree temperatures today in Banff at the Fairmont Springs Hotel. The pool is heated, but the outdoor air is not! I was freezing cold walking outside in these temperatures all bundled up in a sweater, coat, scarf and glove. How could they be outside in just their bathing suit and a robe, walking through snow to get back to their rooms?
While I may start adding my bathing suit to my packing list, you will not find me in an outdoor swimming pool in 20 degree temperatures! I'm not sure about an hot tub either unless the outdoor temperatures about much, much higher!
How about you? Does your swimming suit accompany you on your journeys? And does snow swimming appeal to you?
