When my wife told me that she was looking into hotels near Silverstone Race Track, I think she could tell how shocked I was. I love watching the races but I had never been to one in person. While I have always enjoyed watching them on TV, she knew that my dream was to one day go to a race in person. She told me that she had finally paid off a couple of large debts that we had over the years, and it was time to finally treat ourselves to a few things we have on our bucket list.
She never watches the races with me as it is just not her cup of tea, so I was especially happy that she would be going with me. She told me that while she had no interest in watching the race with me at home, she thought she might appreciate it more seeing it in person with me. She was able to find a hotel that is not far from the race track ,and she booked it for three nights. When I asked her why three nights when the race there is just for a day, she told me that she wanted us to just enjoy some time away from our normal everyday routine.
That is one of the reasons why I love my wife so much. She knew that I would enjoy the race, but she also knew that I would appreciate a couple of more days at the hotel just so we could escape the rat race. The hotel she picked for us was really nice, and I think that this might end up being something we do more often. Spending time together like this in a nice place really refreshed both of us, and we know we need more of that in our lives.
