Re: Simple luxuries
I'm with Sally on food. I'm not a big restaurant fan but I love cooking, and having the nicest ingredients to do so. I'm paying a lot for one of those local organic vegetable baskets that is shipped to my neighborhood café which sells local cheeses, bakes bread and pastries, etc.
When I travelled, I would always treat myself with one luxurious hotel. I'd prefer to couchsurf/stay in hostel for half the trip in order to treat myself to something great than stay in a so-so hotel for both weeks.
