I started traveling alone at 4yrs old. My parents are both travelers for work and pleasure. At 16 I was taking busses to visit friends in different states, staying in Panama for the summer with friends. In college I did the backpacking trip around Europe and hitchhiked along around Turkey. I'm an avid camper and backpacker but I appreciate a little luxury from time to time.
For the past 15 years I've traveled for work and stay at the Four Seasons, Wyndham, Hilton, Sheraton and other various resorts or hotels. When my husband and I travel now we are always looking for something small and off the beaten track - funky B&Bs, tree houses or smaller hotel chains, then again, we do occasionally splurge and go for the big spa at the end of a trip to relax before heading back to work.
If we have to choose, we'd pick a phenomenal meal over a pricy suite any day.
