Travel is my favorite thing to do. Traveling in Europe is my favorite favorite thing to do. Every trip is an adventure and there is always something positive to come out of every experience whether it was fun (which is most of the time) or, occasionally, disastrous (unavoidable in life). I’m not a high-maintenance traveler – high-end hotels cost more than they’re worth for what I use them for (sleeping and TV) but I’m not comfortable in shared rooms such as hostels. Somewhere in between – small hotels or B&Bs when I can; big, anonymous tourist hotels if my budget requires it. If the room is clean, I’m happy. An included breakfast saves time and money. I look forward to local TV as part of my cultural education whether in English or not. A toilet or bathroom down the hall is less common now, but I can manage with that arrangement if necessary. As I get older, it’s more important that accommodations include a lift (elevator). I like to get a room facing the street because I love the energy of cities and it seldom keeps me from a decent night’s sleep. Travel is a lot of work, so I always pack my sense of humor. All that said, my favorite place is the one I just visited, the most recent trip is always the best one and the next trip is going to be even better. I gobble up ideas for new events and destinations like my vacuum picks up cat hair and I’m constantly searching the news services for ideas that spark my imagination.
