I don’t know for you, but I have a strange habit. Each time I’m going in a hotel room, the first thing I do when I arrive in the room is to look behind all frames/canvas hanged on the wall to see if there is something hidden. I don’t know what I expect to find. Maybe a secret treasure or something!
On my last pilot training, I had to be in a hotel room for a long period of time. When I first arrived, I made no exceptions and I looked behind all frames. As usual, there was nothing :(. I then realized the sad truth: it was never going to happen… Unless I am the one to make it happen! So I decided to make a little scavenger hunt in my hotel room.
The scavenger hunt preparation
So first, I removed the smaller canvas print (the one I first looked behind) and placed a little piece of paper with a clue on it.
Congratulations, you just found a clue to the secret treasure!
But maybe that under the bigger canvas lies a bigger clue…
So indeed, I’ve put another clue under the bigger canvas print.
Wow, you found another clue!
You must have some pirate blood in you.
The secret treasure is near, you can feel it!
But where to search next?
Maybe that the following website will tell you…
After this, I prepared a little pirate quiz on my blog! The person would need to take the quiz and to answer all 3 questions correctly in order to have the next and final clue! I had a lot of fun building this quiz and if you want to try it, you can here.
Once the person has answered all 3 questions correctly, the location of the secret treasure is finally revealed. Basically, I’m telling him/her to look under the air conditioning system for the treasure.
The secret treasure revealed
Every good story has an end! After having a little bit of pleasure (at least I hope!), the person will find the following under the air conditioning system:
Arrrrrrrrrr! Such a great pirate loot!
A little bit of fuel for the day! It’s not that much, but at the same time it is just enough to give a little smile on someone’s face for the day 🙂
A new thing?
My dream is that one day I finally find something hidden behind a hanged frame in a hotel room. No need to be a big pirate treasure, but only a little message or something! So if you liked my idea, do the same next time you are in a hotel room and put a smile on someone else’s face! And don’t forget to share this article if you liked it.
