LIke genuine authentic experiences, I travel to see other people, places, experience things I can't get at home, not to stay in places that could be anywhere.
Accommodation, prefer genuine local places than the chains. As long as I'm warm, comfortable I am happy, luxury not that important (but enjoy the occasional splurge). Love the places the locals use, e.g. markets, authentic restaurants, pubs, prefer to meet the locals than other travellers though of course always enjoy socialising with like minded people (don't we all). Don't really like tours all that much though actually have had some great ones (smaller, more initimate)
Always enjoy the food and a drink or two!
