Travelling is one of my favorite hobbies. I love meeting and understanding other cultures. Submerging in the local cuisine, lifestyles, arts, and meeting the locals, are some of the best ways of connecting when you travel, to the host country. As such I prefer authentic hotels with charme (when this option isn't available, I go for a minimalist, modern hotel with wifi) and views of the landscape, unless of course, I am in an urban setting, where landscape is brick & mortar. Foodwise I am quite picky. I have tried Michelin as well as plain-vanilla restaurants (on a budget), although you will have to kidnapp me for fast food (I refuse to eat at the well-known chains and believe junk food is the dark side of the "developed" world). When eating, I look for fresh & healthy ingredients, creative recipes, and friendly service. Fish, seafood, chicken,vegetables, and, yes, those irresistible desserts (doesn't everyone have a vice?), no whip cream, preferably with a fruity taste.
