This person works like a dog 50 to 60 hours a week, except when on TP, gets only two weeks vacation a year, and doesn't want a vacation to involve work of any sort. This tends to preclude hiking cross country with 300 pound packs. It's easier to wheel one's house around than carry it. This type also goes with the flow, doesn't pander to the locals, tries to speak the language, tips well, doesn't haggle with people that make a starvation wage, doesn't gripe (out loud) when "inconvenienced", and generally receives decent service from people in a service industry (hotel clerks, waitresses, bartenders, police

And it's easier to avoid "gun-in-face" problems at a cushy resort with umbrella drinks and a good local buffet. Sure, you might say, that's not really "seeing the country". Why not? Who better to know the country than the locals working at the resort?
Like my Mrs. said, sometimes it's nice to be waited on. Just be nice to those doing the waiting.
