ABC's of Travel

by - 7/10/2015

A) Age you went on your first international trip:
My first international trip was to Florida at the age of 9 with my Grandparents. I would consider my first "real" international trip to be at the age of 21 to Australia. I spent 6 months backpacking Brisbane, Noosa, Cairns, and Darwin.

Lost my camera the first week in OZ so all shots on a disposable!

B) Best foreign beer you’ve had and where:
Kingfisher in India.

C) Cuisine (favourite):
Italian and Japanese

D) Destinations–favourite, least favorite, and why?:
Favourite - Didn't have to travel too far for this one - in my own backyard - Jasper, Alberta! 

Least Favourite - Seattle. No specific reason. We just didn't "click".

E) Event you’ve experienced abroad that made you say “wow”:
Bungee Jumping in Cairns, Australia!

F) Favorite mode of transportation:
Auto in India. Boat in Canada.

Boating in Yellowstone National Park

G) Greatest feeling while traveling:
The moment you see whatever attraction you've been dreaming about - whether it's the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, or a beautiful landscape.

H) Hottest place you’ve ever traveled to:
Ummm, of course, India!

I) Incredible service you’ve experienced and where?:
We spent out first wedding anniversary at Seville, a restaurant in Delhi. Service was amazing and food was even better!

J) Journey that took the longest:
In December 2012 we drove to California and back in less than 2 weeks - Will save that story for another day!

K) Keepsake from your travels:
I don’t buy a lot of souvenirs but I keep all ticket stubs, maps, and other random knicknacks.

L) Let-down sight, where and why?:
1. Niagara Falls. I've only seen it once, maybe I was just being a disgruntle teenager but I didn't find it all that spectacular and the commercialization of the area disturbs the ambience. 

2. Stonehenge. I mean it's just some rocks in a field.

M) Moment where you fell in love with traveling:
Even before I had done it, I loved travelling. Just reading about different countries and looking at pictures had me captivated.

I haven't really experienced any feelings of unsafe though one time we did end up in the ghetto of Las Vegas.
