i dunno how you travel so much alone. i don't mind being alone either but i realize it'll be much better traveling w/ someone i like.
I look more for a place that is friendly and fun then a place with the best conditions and facilities. Who cares if the place is a 5 star hotel if you are alone? I have to admit that I meet a lot of people in Dorm Rooms, although I usually avoid them. In Europe it is about impossible because of the cost. I don't like dorms because they never seem to have a locker for my computer and camera. So I am always thinking.. Is it safe or not?
I travel for enjoyment. I do not travel to meet a 5 star hotel. People are most important in life. In the end it is the people I remember.
