Travel Tag 🛩

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:

  1. Snacks, snacks and some more snacks.
  2. My iPad mini.
  3. 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.

  1. I throughly enjoyed this! I did a travel tag post and it was one of my favorites to write. I really respect the fact that you admit to not being an adventurous foodie. I think so many times people are judged as not culturally aware/open when they don’t want to eat the blood sausage. There are so many other ways to open yourself up to a new culture! Your humor was super enjoyable here too! Fab post!

    1. Thanks, hun! Much appreciated. We can embrace and enjoy different cultures in a myriad of ways that have nothing to with whether I like sheep’s testicles or not. Music, language, celebratory traditions, clothes, slang… As a cultural studies student, I could go on and on, so I’m usually well prepared for those who insist I should eat this or that to show my interest in a particular people. 🙂

  2. Yaaaaay!!
    Now I feel bad because it took me a while to come and see your travel post!

    I’m excited that we both have Korea in our sights. Surely some of that gorgeous Korean food will count as adventurous? They do love red meat though, so you’ll probably be fine!

    Thank you so much for getting involved and I don’t mind at all that it took a while. It just made a lovely surprise for later in the year!

    1. Don’t feel bad. I’m happy that you didn’t take as long as I did! And yes, I’ve been learning about Korean food and it looks like I’ll have lots to choose from. Using chopsticks would be more of a challenge. 😬

      1. It’s all good! In Korea don’t you normally get a spoon as well as chopsticks? Plus they are dainty skinny chopsticks, not the massive plastic ones you see in China. They are easier to manoeuvre.

  3. I share your non love of tomatoes too – they used to make me sick as a child although nowadays I can eat them if chopped up & cooked in a sauce eg in curries or pasta dishes. Not raw though. Never raw! 😊

    1. Strangely enough, I do eat tomatoes raw now and then. We make a cucumber and tomato “chow” here using hot pepper, salt, garlic, and a herb we call “chadon beni” that grows in most yards. Sometimes, it’s not worth the effort to pick the tomatoes out of the chow so I don’t. 😊
