A tag! A tag on a Sunday after a grueling week that just about sucked all the life out of you, pretty much all I can manage.
Natural response to a horrible week: thoughts of escape. To anywhere but here.
A travel tag it is! This one is blatantly stolen from LaurenEllen.
Where was your first plane to?
Apparently, my parents thought it was v. v. important for me and my brother to experience flying at an early age; we flew to Stockholm. Must have been..six? Seven?
Then there was a huge gap of about 10 years until I ever set foot on a plan again. And I went to Bordeaux of all places. And by myself. Did the trip go smoothly? Obviously no!
Where have you travelled to that you would love to visit again?
I like repeats. I also like to be able to plan, which is way easier if you go somewhere where you’ve been before. You know I like to go to Glasgow. Like every time. But because that is such an obvious choice…
I’ve been craving Prague lately. What’s holding me back is if I’m going to travel, I want to see some band play. So far no luck.
Preferred method of travel; planes, trains or car?
I find the actual vehicle is of less importance than the surrounding circumstances. And in Swedish this would be known as jag är så jävla dryyyg. But honestly; I’m fine with planes as long as there are no delays, no luggage missing, the airport isn’t crazy crowded. Trains can also be good. You can move around and I always feel safe in trains, and they generally take you to the center of the city. But there are often delays and the trip itself already takes such a long time.
Car would be my least favorite. You can’t read, traffic, general feeling of being unsafe. And it takes such a lot of time.
Favorite travel website?
If you just keep going back to places you’ve been before, you don’t really need a travel website, do you?
Where would you travel to just eat the food?
Food is always a main reason for any trip I feel. I would travel any place that offers a decent selection of vegan eats. I hear Edinburgh have upped their game when it comes to vegan eats. Makes me more interested in Edinburgh than I have been for a while.
Is there a place you would never go again?
Stockholm. I never want to go to Stockholm. Honestly, at this point, I’d prefer going to Gothenburg. But as long as you live in Sweden though, you can’t really avoid visiting Stockholm I don’t think.
Do you prefer the window, aisle, or middle seat?
I used to love window seats. But then you’ve been trapped between the window and some male passenger who’s fallen asleep and just will not wake up one too many times it just looses its appeal. I will pick aisle every time.
How do you pass the time on the air plane?
Talk to sis, sleep, listen to music, read book, stare out window.
Best not think about traveling any more, because I’m getting myself a huge mortgage, I won’t be going nowhere for a while. Probably. Unless there’s some band I really, really need to see.
