The Wanderlust Tag

1. Your most treasured passport stamp?
Whenever I've been abroad they've never stamped my passport, they don't seem to do it anymore unless you ask and they didn't even look at my passport when I took the Eurostar to Disneyland Paris in 2010, but that's probably most 'treasured' as it was my first time in a foreign country alone. 

2. Can you recite your passport # from memory if asked? 
Pfttt, no. Can anyone? My other half knows his national insurance number by memory which I think is weird enough!

3. Preferred method of travel; planes, trains or automobiles?

I used to be a great flyer, especially as a child. But after the 9/11 tragedy and it's coverage in the media it made me nervous. Now I just cannot accept how that much weight can just be in the sky!
I adore driving though, but will only enjoy being in a car or bus if I were the driver.

4. Top 3 travel items?
Mr Nikon of course, My Dakine Travel Organizer and music if I'm driving/ a book if I'm not.

5. Hostel or hotel?
I have never stayed in a hostel and don't plan on doing so. I'm far to scared of other people to be in such close proximity to strangers.

6. Are you a repeat visitor or do you explore new places?
Usually I like to try new places but have been back to some places once or twice. For example Disneyland (lol).. I would live there if I could!

7. Do you read up on your destination (culture, history, safety) or do you wing it?

I think it's cool to know what there is to see and do but usually you are at least a little aware of that side of things when choosing a destination. Having alot of history is most appealing to me though so I usually look for things like that.

8. Favourite travel website?
Well I'm not that much of a traveler!

9. Where would you recommend a friend to visit? Name city & why.
It'll sound strange to some but my most favorite place I've visited is a little town named Tossa de Mar. It's small enough to be able to see all of it, close to Barcelona for excursions, has a beautiful Medieval Castle and walled town similar to my hometown. It being the first place to declare itself an Anti-Bullfighting city in 1989 is a bonus too! 

10. You're leaving tomorrow, money is no option, where are you going?
Tomorrow? I think after thinking about the afor mentioned I'd stop of there, before going skiing in Italy again, volunteering in an animal sanctuary around Thailand way, spending a little time house shopping in and around Utah, checking out the political points of interest at the capital then having a little Disney break!

This has been sitting half done in my drafts for a long time, but now that I have filled it in I am dying to get away again! Regular readers will know I can't afford that so if you win the lottery please send a tiny portion my way ;) Just kidding! Though here's to saving for a trip somewhere this year!
