I tried to explain this to my family but got deer in the headlights looks
but the lighting is so bad, I can't see anything in the mirror.
I'll be happy to be home in our own bathroom.
Chris,This right here, I have an answer for, and it involves upgrading your lighting. I will have a post coming very soon, where I discuss my shave den upgrades. Its amazing what one can do, just by changing out a light bulb.
That is a feeling that I can understand. The last time my family traveled out of state, was back when I was a little kid, and my mom and dad were still alive. When your at a place you don't know, in a bed that is not yours, this is a statement that plays like a broken record, within your mind, several times of day. Sure, its nice to visit, but its not your home, you don't have all your stuff, your out of your comfort zone, and you just can't wait to get back home!
This is exactly the reason why, I prefer to shave in the evening. If I have to do a quick shave in the morning, due to time constraints, then I'd be using my Henson razor and a shave stick, no bowl lathering. This method is going to be quicker then others, but is not going to be as comfortable, or as relaxing.
In the evening, I am not under time constraints, I am on my own time! In the evening, I could care less if I take an hour to shave. The point is, its about the relaxing shave, take your time, enjoy it! This is why so many folks have dedicated shave dens, to reduce unwanted interruptions.
Have a great shave, have a great day!
