Though there are several different definitions of the word "amenity", for the purpose of this blog we shall use the following: "something that conduces to comfort, convenience, and enjoyment". Used in a sentence: "The hotel has every amenity you could want." In other words, the hotel in question has valet parking, air-conditioning, free wireless internet, an on-site restaurant, etc., etc. For travelers, amenities - the presence of or lack therein - can make or break one's trip as it truly is the little things that count.
This section of The Distracted Wanderer will try to hit on some of those little things either in picture or word - those extra something-somethings that can change a journey from mundane to marvelous!
