I remember the time that I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Dubai on a business trip. The room must have cost as much as I now pay per month in rent. Of course, taking a bath in rose petals is amazing (when someone else is paying), but, for personal travel I prefer simplicity and value for money.
By the time we reach our sixties, most women who love to travel have a pattern of planning that works for them. We follow rituals of packing, planning and preparation, remembering from past experience and anticipating things that just might go wrong. However, personally, I always forget something!
