It's a tricky question as I loved getting up every morning at 6am; cupping a mug of warm coca leaf tea in my hands, while breathing in the fresh air in the incredible Andes. At the same time, you can't beat climbing into a huge hotel bed with fresh sheets, and plump pillows.
Since I returned from the magical mountain ridges in Peru on Saturday, I have taken great pleasure in the simple things in life; like switching on lights instead of rummaging in my rucksack for my head torch. Having said that; I miss the feeling of open spaces, and a lack of people - it was a strange feeling being in London Heathrow with thousands of other travellers, and I do wish I could still enjoy the relative solitude of the trek with the amazing bunch of fellow trekkers, who really made the trip for me.
I am relatively new to trekking and camping experiences, but that doesn't mean I've spent years travelling in luxury. I think it's all about having a balance, and mixing things up a bit so that you don't get bored with one or the other. Perhaps the way to do it, is to try and experience luxury on a budget!
What do you prefer - luxury or budget travel? I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please leave your comments below.
