No man prefers to sleep two in a bed. In fact, you would a good deal rather not sleep with your own brother. I dont know how it is, but people like to be private when they are sleeping. And when it comes to sleeping with an unknown stranger, in a strange inn, in a strange town, and that stranger a harpooneer, then your objections indefinitely multiply.
Nor was there any earthly reason why I as a sailor should sleep two in a bed, more than anybody else; for sailors no more sleep two in a bed at sea, than bachelor Kings do ashore. To be sure they all sleep together in one apartment, but you have your own hammock, and cover yourself with your own blanket, and sleep in your own skin.

RECENT FEEDBACK

For with the charts of all four oceans before him, Ahab was threading a maze of currents and eddies, with a view to the more certain accomplishment of that monomaniac thought of his soul.

The more I pondered over this harpooneer, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooneer, his linen or woollen, as the case might be, would not be of the tidiest.

  • Designed by Jordanian architect Ammar Khammash, this artist’s villa rises seamlessly from the landscape. But even the natural elements—like a tiny splash of pink flowers against the golden hillside—seem tailor-made to spark creativity. Recent guests have been inspired to leave behind one unfinished artwork for a future guest (aka you) to complete. ⁣

  • "Pride for me is the idea of being comfortable and proud of who I am. It took me a very long time to be comfortable. Especially with the culture I was raised around, being gay wasn't the best thing to be. But I finally was able to come out of that. I'm proud to be trans-masc, I'm proud to be a part of this community, and nothing's gonna change that. I think that's what's really important to me, that kind of pride." ⁣

  • "All of a sudden, there is so much that people of my generation fought so hard for and now we're watching it be threatened again. And it's like, "Wait a minute. Didn't we do this already?" And now we have to fight again." ⁣

  • It’s unclear whether it’s the seaside air or the design of this #AirbnbPlus flat, but guests find themselves relaxing immediately upon arrival. If it all gets too tranquil and you crave some drama, walk to Brighton Open Air Theatre for Shakespeare and more.

  • Superhost Darma’s elegant treehouse might make you believe it’s called an infinity pool because you lose track of time there. One moment you’re enjoying your floating breakfast and the next you’re watching fireflies twinkle above the dark rice fields.
