When it comes to selecting destinations to visit, which factor is more important: comfort, adventure, or status? I'm just curious

Once upon a time, it was adventure. Now in my old age, I like room service.

I understand "comfort" and "adventure"....I don't understand the "status" thing.....

I'm all about comfort!

Default Comfort.

Can go with some adventure. Seeing someplace different and pleasing to the eyes is enough for me.

I'm 57 now, so I choose comfort. When I was 30 it was acventure. Never understood the "status" thing (I guess it means "spending a lot of money"...)

Adventure with a little comfort in between. E.g. in Uzbekistan I booked 2 or 3 pretty good hotels within the journey, to have clean and nice beds and bathrooms. For road trips I prefer larger or luxury cars, but I don't stay at luxury resorts.
