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.
Q16. Do you eat on a plane? If so, what?
A16. It depends if I am sitting in first class or not haha! Typically, I try my best to stay away from plane food. Since I am a vegetarian and request a special meal, it usually is very unappetizing. I always end up giving most of it to my husband, who will eat anything. Thus, I try to bring my own food with me every time I fly (chocolate and popcorn are my indulgences). I also drink a ton of water and stay away from alcohol.
Q17. Do you check in or carry on?
A17. Before the 3-1-1 rule I always stuck to carry on if it was a trip under a week. I only wear dresses, so packing for me is really easy and simple. However, I love my beauty products and find it impossible to fit them all into a quart sized bag. I would rather pay the check in baggage fee and patiently wait for my luggage to arrive after the flight, then go without my favorite moisturizer.
Q18. Where is your favorite theme park in the world?
A18. I actually have not been to a theme park in over a decade! I will always, however, have a soft spot for Disney World, especially It’s A Small World. These days I have become more of an aquarium person. One of my favorite places in the world is the Georgia Aquarium. As a Christmas present from my parents many years ago, I was given the chance to dive with the whale sharks and it was an experience I will never forget.
Q19. What is your favorite travel related movie?
A19. Wow, this is a tough question to answer, because I have many! I find a lot of my travel inspiration through movies. Some of my favorites include: The English Patient, Frida, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Before Sunset/Sunrise/Midnight, Monsoon Wedding, The Motorcycle Diaries, L’auberge Espangnole, Lost In Translation, Vicky Christina Barcelona, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Eat Pray Love, Amelie, Under The Tuscan Sun, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Life Of Pi, Stealing Beauty, and Midnight In Paris.
Q20. What is your favorite mode of transportation?
A20. Train travel is incredibly romantic and peaceful, but I rarely get the opportunity to take the train. I prefer road trips to flying, simply because I love the freedom you have by being able to stop whenever your heart desires and to play your music as loud as you want and flying these days stresses me out.
