As we spend most of our travel time doing things, deluxe hotels are not our style. We prefer being away from tourist areas & would rather stay where one becomes part of the culture. Much of our travel starts in areas where we have family or friends and moves out from there. Most favorite non-NorthAmerica places are Italy, UK, Spain and Paraguay.
