Wellbeing enhanced more by places than objects, study finds | Life and style | The Guardian
The poet WHAuden is credited with first coining the word “topophilia” to describe a strong emotional pull to a special place.

Now scientific research, using cutting-edge brain imaging, suggests Auden was on to something. According to a study commissioned by the National Trust, people experience intense feelings of wellbeing, contentment and belonging from places that evoke positive memories far more than treasured objects such as photographs or wedding rings. // siehe menschen die umgeben sind vom baeume sind gluecklicher und gesuender

Apulia, Italy >> Italians own nation holiday destination // http://www.italyheaven.co.uk/puglia/ "Puglia, also known as Apulia, is in the south of Italy; the heel of Italy's boot. The region is not one of Italy's traditional tourist destinations, but it is becoming increasingly popular as travellers discover the area's varied charms: baroque towns, white-washed trullo houses, olive groves and orchards, blue sea and beaches, plenty of sunshine and excellent cuisine."

The Science Of Why You Should Spend Your Money On Experiences, Not Things | Co.Exist | ideas impact
"The tendency of keeping up with the Joneses tends to be more pronounced for material goods than for experiential purchases," says Gilovich. "It certainly bothers us if we're on a vacation and see people staying in a better hotel or flying first class. But it doesn't produce as much envy as when we're outgunned on material goods." Gilovich's research has implications for individuals who want to maximize their happiness return on their financial investments, for employers who want to have a happier workforce, and policy-makers who want to have a happy citizenry. "By shifting the investments that societies make and the policies they pursue, they can steer large populations to the kinds of experiential pursuits that promote greater happiness," write Gilovich and his coauthor, Amit Kumar, in their recent article in the academic journal Experimental Social Psychology. [...] but also place an emphasis on employers giving paid vacation and governments taking care of recreational spaces.

Joe Gebbia - The Airbnb Story - YouTube
AirBnB is the ebay for places and experiences. Sharing is caring - you space. This kindness to open up you personal space to strangers ... magical moments can happen. Stories are written. Lives are changed. Still there is the 80/20 - there will always be bad eggs, say bad customers. And because national travel is vry affordable and people want to escape their walls on the weekend if they could afford and its users use it for niche items/services >> providing accommodation for events. Staying in someones place is very different than a hotel. a hotel is generic. every AirBnB is different. It is an experience. not only might you experience a new city, but you also experience someones life, how he or she or they live. Their view. Plus - this is the time of the Airbnb - experience services - because millennials favour experiences of commoditised consumer goods. and babyboomers want that cake too because of the youthification trend. only retrospective u see the pieces of the puzzle.

Der Hintergrund der Tat ist noch unklar. Der Sender Milenio Televisión berichtete, die Urlauber seien auch ausgeraubt worden. Es könnte aber auch eine Eskalation des mexikanischen Drogenkriegs sein. Der Bürgermeister versuchte, den Fall herunterzuspielen. "Was passiert ist, ist sehr bedauerlich, aber so etwas geschieht überall auf der Welt", sagte Bürgermeister Walton.

"" - when your travelling alone, you are much more untethered, more vulnerable, dependent on the kindness of strangers, - it opens you up - you sort of become a better version of yourself. ""

The minibar whiskey may be urine and why you don't want to drink from the glasses: staff dish hotel secrets | Mail Online
6. One room, one simple rule
An employee at a top hotel told Reddit that people wanting just one room should avoid online travel sites.
He said third parties often charge more than the hotel's actual rate so people should book directly because if there are vacancies, they're willing to bargain.
'If you are just reserving a room, you're getting the short stick,' he said.
7. Need to cancel without paying a fee? Think ahead
Another useful tip was on how to avoid paying a cancellation fee when you have to ditch a reservation at the last minute.
A receptionist said a clever solution is to call the hotel and push your reservation forward a few weeks. Then, call back later that day and cancel.
