Another travel writer I “know” (“know” is in quotes because I never met her, only online), recently put an interesting question meme on her blog. The idea is that people who are afflicted with the travel bug answer these questions, then pass them on to another travel lover. These are the questions, with my answers:
If you could take a dream trip in 2008, where would it be and why?
My dream trip would be a week – okay, two – in Australia and New Zealand.
If you could only visit one new (to you) city this year, which one would it be and why?
This is hard! There are so many. But I’m going to go with Angkor Wat. Cambodia is finally just beginning to creep out of the horrible socio-economic situation left behind by the Khmer Rouge, yet the culture is so open and forgiving – and of course, Angkor Wat was a finalist for the 7 New Wonders of the World.
If you could go back to one place this year that you’ve been to before, where, and why?
I would have to say Paris, because I was there for only 4 days, which really isn’t enough. Cramming all those museums and world-famous restaurants into less than a week didn’t really leave time to just stroll and appreciate where I was.
Do you think you might travel more or less this year than in previous years?
Well, I’d say more traveling, but shorter distances from home.
What will you be looking for in your travels in 2008?
I’d hope that this coming year will leave me inspired to learn even more about the world, share in these experiences with my family, and also – to share the experiences with the world through this blog!
So, where is YOUR dream trip? And to where would you most like to return? Please post your answers to the questions above in the Comments area below. This is intended to be a meme: Feel free to pass it on to another traveler. Happy travels!
