I’ve always said my dream job would be paid to travel. I have never been the person to spend all my earnings on random shopping outings and sports events and saved every penny to travel. I am doing the Wanderlust Tag is a series of travel-related questions with people who have wanderlust.
Where have you traveled to that you would love to travel again?
There are so many places that I have been to that I will love to visit again. I know you’re meant to pick one place, but I can’t, so I will pick two and they are Canada, I am half Canadian and not been back there for about 13 years. I also want to go back Venice as I was only there for a day and want to see more of the beautiful city.
You’re leaving tomorrow, money is no object where are you going?
It will have to be New Zealand. After watching Lord of the Rings trilogy, it made me want to go to New Zealand. The landscape is so beautiful and stunning which is why I want to explore that country.
The preferred method of travel; planes, trains, buses or cars?
It all depends on where in the world you are. I would normally say plan for everything as it’s quick and some places are just too far apart that you have to fly. If I was in Vietnam I would say a Bus as the buses there are much better than the ones in the UK. They come to your own bed and you get to see the views of nature.
Top three travel items?
There are a lot of essential travel items. The main ones I can’t live without being:
- My camera to capture the great moments and the countries I have visited.
- My Phone is very important to call your friends if you have lost them. Also, it is the device I use to book the hostels when traveling.
- The backpack is vital as it stores all my money and passport and my camera that I take with me every day.
Are you a repeat visitor or do you explore new places?
I always aim to Visit new places. It still means I won’t decide to go back to a country I have not been too already as I have not visited all of the countries so there is still parts if it I can explore.
Do you read up on your destination (culture, history, safety) or do you wing it?
Before I even book a trip I am having to be sure the place is right for me, so I can research about the country. I like reading about the destination before I go. As if I find out amazing thing to see in the destination after I have been I will be a bit angry I did not get to see, so that is why I don’t wing it.
Favorite travel website?
My favorite websites are the blogs like this one that people have written after visiting different places and if they include photos, even better. You learn so much more about each destination on these blogs than on commercial travel websites and they are more real and true.
Where would you recommend a friend to visit? Name the city and why.
I have been to some amazing places and there are still hundreds of most amazing places to visit, so I am not the best to suggest a lace as I have not been all the great places yet. Despite that, I still have been too lots of great places and there is one that has it all adventure, cloture and the best food ever and I would recommend Thailand.
Do you prefer the Window, Aisle, or Middle Seat?
I always want to have the window seat. As I like looking outside at the countries I fly the past and the clouds and sky.
How do you pass the time on the airplane?
When I am on a long haul flight I watch the provided films and TV shows. As in any flight, I would listen to the music on the phone to pass the time.
Do you prefer summer or winter?
I like both for different for many different reasons. I love the summer because sunny days make me happier and love going to the beach in the summer, but I hate the heat as I burn very easily. I love the winter as it is the time of year it is my birthday in January. Also, I love the snow.
