Holiday travel is seldom fun – even when you get there and stay with relatives or friends and run the risk of seeing one naked. No, we're not making this up, nor would we want to.
According to a recent survey conducted by Choice Hotels International, the most common issues reported by holiday travelers staying with people they know are getting woken up before they want to (39 percent) and having to wait in line for the bathroom (25 percent). But it also lists other anxieties that include accidentally seeing a relative naked (which really should top the list), eating a lousy meal, participating in awkward family traditions (think ugly sweaters), getting stuck in long conversations with people you'd rather not, sharing a room with a relative, sleeping on an air mattress, and the old favorite, fighting with family.
Not surprisingly, Choice Hotels suggests a stay at one of their franchises as an alternative. With more than 6,300 hotels in their fold, it should be easy enough to find a place where you won't run the risk of seeing naked kinfolk.
