French Fun Fact of the Day: No Clocks in the Hotel Room

This is probably more like a European fun fact of the day. At many of the hotels you stay at in Europe, you won’t find an alarm clock in the room. I was recently in Ireland, San Sebastián, Corsica, and Loire Valley, and not a single one of them had an alarm clock. The Europeans don’t like it, which probably explains a lot about their pace in life…

I did hear hotels that get frequented by a lot of Americans tend to put clocks in it though since we tend to be schedule-conscious folks and like them.
