Almost every day I am asked interesting questions from all over the world and I thought I would start sharing my responses to them, along with travel related giveaways. I love questions, thus please feel free to ask me anything in the comments or send me a private message if you prefer.
Q11. If you could travel to one city for breakfast, one for lunch, another for dinner, and of course another for dessert, where would you go and what would you eat?
A11. This is probably my favorite question asked thus far since I love to eat! For breakfast, I would travel to Brasil. Brasilians know the importance of a good breakfast, which usually includes: omelets, fresh fruit and juice, cheeses, cakes, breads, strong coffee, and more. For lunch, I would travel to Italy for endless bowls of homemade pasta and as much wine as I could drink. For dinner, I would travel to Spain for a late night filled with tapas and cava. Finally, for dessert, I would travel to Argentina for a huge scoop of dulce de leche ice cream.
Q12. You are the pro at making a long-distance relationship work! Any tips?
A12. I honestly do not know how I survived a six year long-distance relationship? After a day of work now, I miss my husband so much that my heart aches and I count the seconds until I can see him again! Having said that, with love all things are possible and I wrote a very personal post about how to survive long-distance relationships here.
Q13. Where is your favorite island nation?
A13. I have a serious problem with falling in love with every island I visit and I simply cannot pick a favorite! I was recently in Bermuda and the Turks and Caicos and I left a piece of my heart in both places. I also have an affinity for New Caledonia and Cuba, as well as Ibiza and Easter Island (although I know the latter are not technically considered island nations).
Q14. Do you prefer traveling solo, or with your husband? Why?
A14. Absolutely traveling with my husband! I spent my 20′s exploring the world solo and those experiences made me the person I am today. I think everyone, especially women, should travel solo at least once in their lifetime to a country where they do not speak the language. I am so grateful that I followed my heart and traveled by myself, however traveling with my husband is the most extraordinary experience. He is by far my favorite travel partner and definitely enriches traveling for me (plus, he carries my luggage and heavy camera gear).
Q15. If you had to give up practicing Chinese Medicine or traveling around the world, which would you give up?
A15. I think I might surprise some people with my answer, but I would give up traveling around the world. As much joy as it brings me, healing people is my true calling in life. I find it more fulfilling to help someone with their health problems than to cross off something from my Bucket List. Nevertheless, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I never have to make that heartbreaking choice!
