To stave off feeling like a complete failure, I am FINALLY posting my responses to Josy’s travel tag from June. Yes, June. 2017 is certainly in a hurry to be over so I thought I’d get this in before I blink and it’s 2018. Then, I’d be a certified failure and we wouldn’t want that.
What is your favourite place that you have visited?
London. The spirit of the city was a vortex that sucked me in body and soul. The people were friendly and remarkably polite. The men were gorgeous (heyyyyy, Mr. Darcy). There was so much to see and do…and there’s so much more I have to see and do. I can’t wait to get back. Maybe Spring 2018?
If you could visit anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
Korea. I fell in love with BTS and K-pop last year. I haven’t been the same since. I’m determined to learn a bit of Korean (baby steps) and to see BTS perform in Korea. ARMY!!!
Would you rather go on a city holiday or a beach holiday?
I live in Trinidad and our sister isle Tobago boasts my favourite beach, Pigeon Point. That said, it matters not that beaches are close to me. As a water loving Pisces, I’d hop a flight and hit up a beach somewhere else. The beach wins every time.
My top three travel essentials are:
- Snacks, snacks and some more snacks.
- My iPad mini.
- My purple wrap.
Are you an over packer or an under packer?
Definitely an over packer. I weigh my suitcase(s) a million times before I leave the house. I pack for cold weather, warm weather, formal occasions, casual days, the apocalypse…
What is your favourite thing about going on vacations?
Observing people. On the plane, in the airport, on public transportation… I’ve learnt so much about people and places and other cultures just by quietly observing.
Would you rather go on holiday with family or friends?
Depends on the friend and the family. I only travel with people very close to me who understand my personality and quirks. And vice versa. I tend to spend most of my time in the air alone, which suits me, but I’ve also met some interesting people this way. Airplane and airport conversations are fun and easy.
What is the most adventurous dish you ever tried from another country?
Nope. Nope. Nope. I am not a foodie adventurer. I am not about to eat creatures that I’ve never heard of. I barely eat the stuff I’m familiar with. I enjoy four food groups: meat (preferably red), potatoes, butter, cheese. I really hate tomatoes so I guess I can count this grilled cheese and tomato something as my most adventurous travel food experience. It was so very good, I had seconds. I’m back to totally hating tomatoes again.
Well, it took me less than an hour to do this, which makes me feel even more ashamed that I waited this long! Keep the tags coming.
