I am eclectic. I just like to get away. I can shop til I drop, or hang out by a river, walk for hours, enjoy nature, cook up a storm at a self-catering spot, to enjoying the luxury of great accommodation.
I like to have beautiful surroundings, creative, artistic, comfy and homely, the finer touches - but not at insane prices that take your breath away. Meeting new people, engaging in conversation, getting engrossed in the culture/food/thoughts of an area also appeals to me. I am not an adrenaline junky, but do like to find different and interesting things to do - yoga/art/cooking classes/4x4/game drives/exhibitions/museums/historic sites/concerts or theatre etc.
I have travelled much to Europe, and some parts of the USA, and frequent GB often. I also get to travel locally in my own country of South Africa, and love its cultural diversity, energy and beauty.
I will hunt for special, wonderful and inexpensive accommodation, and it gives me such pleasure to find the gems.
