Ahh, There's Something About Sleeping On The Ground Like A Dog

Or, maybe, not so much. Like this report of hut-to-hut hiking in the Italian Dolomites. I love this quote:

"There’s something about sleeping under the stars, a breeze on your face or light rain on your tent fly, and the ritual of making coffee and breakfast in the backcountry. Simple, practical, independent, and satisfying in some uncivilized way.
Tell you what else: There’s something to hiking a massive amount of miles with a super-light pack, and having Italian espresso served to you twice or three times a day, and eating pasta and strudel cooked by someone else every night."
