>I like to understand (& maybe adopt) good practices that I encounter. >Understated quality/value hits home better than "industrial" chains. >Chains offering good value (think Japanese budget business hotels - criticized for cookie-cutter sameness, but tweaked for space&cost-efficient amenities) can be OK. >A great restaurant need not be expensive to be gastronomically (& otherwise) enjoyable. But healthy (low salt, fat, sugar; more fresh veggies & fruit) helps a lot. >The family is eclectic & would rather eat veg. than slabs of meat (but none of us is purely veg). This shapes where/how we eat. >A hotel can be more stylish if it's clean, on-target, near transit and a good park. >If I can't add perspective to the existing body of reviews of a place, then I tend not to submit a review. After all, there is no need to try to bury previous good reviews in TA's review blogs without offering something new. -The avatar shows a motu (islet) near Aitutaki, Cook Islands.
