Solitary accommodation

Travelling for an extended period on my lonesome doesn’t allow for superior accommodation at $200 or more for a night.

I can put up with a lower rating to save money.

Five nights were spent in my tent, to which I am clearly well accustomed. I don’t mind sleeping in close contact with the ground, although the sleeping mat assists in this aspect.

A few nights were spent in country town hotels that once were common for single travelling men.

That taught me what a five rating means.

Not five star. 5/10.

All I can say is you get what you pay for.

Strangely, I was the only resident in a number of these places. It was a ghostly brush with the past, probably the last time the premises had been thoroughly cleaned.
