Why do you choose the style and mode of travel that you do?
I love backpacking because it allows me to have the freedom to come and go as I please and plan my own itinerary. I dont like to be tied down to a tour schedule or having someone telling where I will be at 1, 3 or 5. I like the adventure of doing it on my own and the possibility of something really crazy and exciting happening so I have a great story to tell afterwards.
But when I travel with the hubby or friends, I have to "adjust" to their mode or style of travel but typically for me, it isnt a matter of choice. I just have to go with it...or dont go at all.
