The main characteristics of my trips are the following:
Lot of planification. I like to gather all the places I want to visit reading other travel blogs and/or watching documentaries of the place in Youtube. Once I have all the places, I distribute them through the days I am staying so everyday I have clear what I am going to see and at what time.
Budget-efficient trips. I am not a backpacker nor a luxury traveller. I like to spend money on the right things and I try to be as rational as possible. If there is a train to get to a place, why taking a taxi?
I always eat like a local. Every time I go to a restaurant while travelling I always try to taste local cuisine. Eating in a McDonald's in Morocco does not add any value to the trip. Trying a couscous or a tajinne in a restaurant does it.
