Pre-credit crunch I lived for taking three weeks every year in South Africa - pushing myself on ever-more adventurous, 'real' bush and safari treks balanced with luxury, fact-finding Wineland experiences.
With budgets currently slashed until I win the Lottery, I am enjoying exploring Europe, with long weekends in Spanish cities, Austrian and Swiss summer walking trips and out-of-season Portugal adventures. I appreciate top quality, having been born a princess in a previous life (it's the only explanation) but will rough it on occasion at the right price if the rest of the experience is right. Love a bargain. And hate bad service beyond all else - it doesn't cost extra to smile. Icing on the cake is having a special experience that goes beyond the norm - being invited to join a family party or share secrets with people from other cultures.
