I love travel (that's me in Marrakech earlier this year) but mainly do it for work these days. It has it has its pros (new cities, new people!) and its cons (well, work...) but I consider myself lucky. When looking for somewhere to stay I seek out the usual things (cleanliness, comfort), and if there's a bit of something unusual and beautiful about a place that is a great bonus. As I'm usually working I'm a pretty responsible guest - more likely to be emailing than partying! But, I do like to eat (more than I like to cook) and to see and do new things in new places, so I try and get out and about to restaurants, in search of good wine or coffee, cool galleries, peaceful parks, interesting nooks and crannies.
