I was nominated by the amazing Oriana to do the Travel Tag and I thought it was such a fantastic idea!
I love travelling. It is definitely something I haven’t done a lot of and I’m not a global jetsetter as I don’t exactly have the funds for that but I am so passionate about visiting other places and falling in love with their way of life and culture.
What is your favourite place that you have ever visited?
In terms of it being a place that very few people have been to and it being quite a once in a lifetime experience, Yangshuo was just incredible. It is very close to Vietnam so the mountains are just breathtaking and I feel so honoured to have spent so much time there.
If you could visit anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
New York. 1000%. It is a total dream of mine to go. I know it looks vastly different from the scenery I just mentioned in China but I think the reason I would say New York is because it is almost impossible for me to ever imagine having the money to go so if I ever could, I would jump at the chance.
City holiday or beach holiday?
I love both, so much! I loved Barcelona because I enjoyed that I could do the two at once. I like visiting cities in the Spring or Autumn because it’s warm enough to wander around but not too hot that it’s exhausting (says the person going to Barcelona in June and Prague in August) and have a beach holiday in the summer – for obvious reasons!
Sharm El Sheikh – Egypt
My top three holiday essentials are…
- A disposable camera
- A guide or map – whether this is a physical copy or on your phone
- If it’s a city break, shoes that don’t destroy your feet!
Are you an over packer or under packer?
Under! I really don’t take very much with me when I travel at all. Weird for a girl who loves clothes, eh?
What is your favourite thing about going on holidays?
Being somewhere where nobody knows who I am, doesn’t necessarily speak the same language as me and where I can relax. I like just being somewhere that isn’t home where I can just be placed anywhere and get to explore it for myself.
I also love architecture. I love different and amazing buildings – Gaudi’s work in Barcelona is just sensational!
Would you rather go on holiday with family or friends?
Honestly, I would rather go with Adam or by myself as then I feel like I can make the most of what the place has to offer, either with someone who I love and enjoys the same things or alone.
What is the most adventurous dish you have ever tried?
I am incredibly fussy but the people we lived with in China didn’t even know hello in English so I’m not even 100% sure what I ate most of the time…
I apologise if you don’t include tags on your blog or if you have been tagged before and don’t repost! I would love to see everyone do this tag though because travelling is so amazing and I love seeing where people have been and what they loved.
