Hey, I said this on the radio weeks ago!
What I like is precisely the title of this article–that frugality is now not just a necessity, it is actually in fashion. Everyone who asks me for travel advice has a budget now. Questions run to “Where can I find a romantic B&B on the coast for under $200 per night?”
It’s not that I don’t like luxury. I *love* the occasional stay in a posh resort with a fabulous private hot tub. But I do think that this is something special, something worth saving up for, something I want to appreciate for the valuable treasure it is. If I lived at the Ventana, it would become everyday for me.
Not that this would be completely sad…
