There are cities and countries that we want to visit or would desire to move to, and sometimes it can be a dream, but sometimes it can also be a reality. And if one day, you will get the chance to do what your heart desires, where will it be? What will you do? I thought of those questions a million times, so I went to dive into these 10 Advent questions about traveling and would love to share them with you.
Where is your favorite spot in the world? Not a city or country, spot.
My favorite and most cherished spot in the world is on the beach. A tropical paradise where solace lies. A magical place where I can hear and feel my thoughts while watching the ocean hit the shore and feeling the salty wind on my face. Where euphoria exudes, then nothing else matters. A thalassophile always, and forever!
Okay, let’s do your favorite country and city as well?
Countries? Cities? I have a few. But, if I have to pick one, my most favorite country is Spain, and the city is Barcelona. Why? Because I fell in love with it even before I got there. Not a love at first sight kind of thing, but rather it is more of a feeling. The culture, food, the vibrant and gothic charm speaks volume.
If you could move to a city, which one would it be? Permanent?
Lisbon is the closest to my heart. It feels like home. Why? The buzzing city is just minutes away from the beautiful beaches. Again, I’m in love with places with beautiful beaches and mild winter. Permanent? We shall see! There’s nothing permanent in life. We go with the flow!
Once you have moved there, what do you do for work?
Let’s say I will cross the bridge when I get there. Freelance work from home, possible! However, when opportunities arise then, who am I to turn them down? If I can live in a city I love, I’ll hustle as I know-how.
To what country and city did you travel the first time?
Okay, the first city outside where I live that I travel to was Baguio City (the city of pines) in the Philippines. As you know or not know, there are 7,640-ish islands in the Philippine archipelago. I was seven years old back then, and the trip was a bit vague by now. I can still recall some fond memories whenever I see the pictures from that trip.
What is your favorite season to travel? Pick one favorite trip for each season.
Summer is my favorite season! So, I love to travel when it’s summer somewhere else in the world and escape the winter where I live. The rest of the other seasons is my allergy season (smh). Sunny days are my happiest days! Plus, I get to travel light with no winter jackets and boots to carry.
Are there places that you don’t want to visit?
War stricken countries. Sad to say, there’s so much beauty in the world, yet, there are countries that are impossible to visit because safety is my priority.
Where did you have the worst travel experience?
I have not encountered my worst travel experience so far, but some experiences are a little uncomfortable. Venice is such a beautiful city, the city of masks, water, and bridges. It is a tight city that is built-in water and connected by so many bridges. How romantic that sight can be, right? While you see so many lovers walking around holding hands and kissing every time they cross a bridge! But there’s one thing I noticed there were so many rats that will cross the bridge along with you. EEEK! The sight still haunts me. But, despite that, it’s still a beautiful and romantic city nevertheless.
And the best?
Prague amazed me in ways more than I could imagine. The city of 100 spires, adorned with baroque buildings and gothic churches. It is beautiful! I love places where almost everything is walkable. Just watch out for the drunk tourists because they’re everywhere!
What is your all-time dream destination?
The Caribbean islands. What an easy question! Where the sky meets the sea, a wonderful sight to see. A perfect summer getaway! One day, someday. I’ll hop those islands with a smile on my face. Because once an island girl will always be an island girl.
