Discussing :: World's most expensive...

No one gets a bargain! With increasing wealth comes increasing ways to spend it. Increasingly silly you might say. But clearly the childhood impulse to cavort around your peer group and sing 'I've got something you don't have...' is one that not many - if any, ever truly outgrow. Indeed, many lucrative companies, brands and entire industries owe their existence to this particular piece of hardwiring in the modern human brain.

Sometimes I think it would have been unforgettable to try one of the extravagent world class experiences such as flying on Concord...... but then I remind myself that there are still some class experiences for little or no money...... one of my favourites was when I discovered many years ago from my father and his friends - who loved tramping and mountaineering and were involved in such activities from the late 1940s onwards...... that it is legitimate after several days in the mountains to go to the Chateau or the Hermitage, leave your boots beside the door to the outdoors, and put on some clean socks and walk in socked [stockinged ?] feet in to the dining room and buy endless cups of coffee - enjoying the view, the location and the comfort....... the confidence to feel you can go anywhere..... and that having done that hard physical effort in the mountains, you have the right to enjoy the classy comfort........

Well we can largely thank Gen X for this over indulgent greed fest - they want it now and will tick it up to get it - its not to say we arent all a little guilty of wanting the best in life, sometimes! Was it not extravagance to a certain degree that helped drive us into the R word state of affairs of the economy?
