I have realized I’m not made for extreme luxury. We used points to stay at a very chic hotel in San Sebastián, and it was daunting. Everybody was so subservient, we couldn’t stand it. Bowing, smiling, greeting, anticipating every need, brrrr. You try to engage in normal human banter with the hotel workers but they are too scared to react. It’s like you are surrounded by tense, scared people with forced smiles all the time.
It’s not my thing.
