A Travel Interview With My 2 Teens

School is out! Let the travel games begin.

I have my first 2 travel victims, daughters Abby and Jade.

They have so “willingly” accepted my request for an interview.

Where do you want to travel to next?

A – India

J- Bali

What was your favourite Canadian travel experience?

A- Pleasant Bay, Nova Scotia because that is where our family started.

J- Pleasant Bay, Nova Scotia because of our emotional ties to it. Our whole family was there.

What was your favourite American travel experience?

A – Disney World because Splash Mountain cooled me off.

J- New York City because of its’ friggin massive buildings.

What was your favourite travel experience outside North America?

A – Sandboarding in Peru! It was so hard to keep my balance and when I fell sand flewย everywhere.

J- Tikal in Guatemala when it was so dark and we were standing in the back of the pick up truck hearing the howler monkeys in the jungle.

What is the funniest family travel moment?

A – When Cheryl had a fit at midnight in the hotel with the man who gave our room away.

J- The Sahara desert fiasco when we were stuck in the sandstorm… the whole thing was a disaster!

Why do you love to travel?

A- Because I learn a lot. ย I see different ways of living and it is fun.

J- Travel opens your eyes and mind to so many more things than a book or school education ever could. You see it all right there in front of you.

What is one item you never leave home without?

A- My camera

J- My phone

When you travel, what do you miss about home?

A- My friends

J- Homey food that I can find in my clean kitchen and eat at anytime like popcorn.

Anything you want to add to my travel interview?

A- Nope! (yelling in relief)

J- This was so much fun (dripping in sarcasm).

(I am now off to research travel destinations for next summer! Possibly somewhere in southern Africa that doesn’t cost a fortune (that is probably a travel oxymoron). I want to self-drive a safari as it is so much cheaper, but the South African school holidays are at the wrong time and Kruger will be packed! Maybe Namibia, but that is more expensive…. or India… but Abby doesn’t do well in the heat…. or…)

    Your girls are so lucky to have had such great experiences. One day they will actually mean what they say with sarcasm today.

    Will you still be in Egypt next summer or will you be back in Canada? Obviously my travel vote is Turkey ๐Ÿ˜‰

      We hope to do some travelling in the area before we come back to Canada for a short visit and then go back to Egypt. I will be definitely going to Turkey but was thinking it might be a lot busier in the summer and more expensive. I have heard Istanbul and its hotels/hostels are a bit expensive. Is that right?

        I wouldn’t know to be honest, we stayed with friends when we were there. But I would not be at all surprised if it was. You may want to look at other cities in Turkey as well- such as Capadoccia and Pamukkale. Summer is very touristy- but it is also the best time to go if you don’t speak Turkish because there are more bilingual people available. Hubby actually had to translate for a family from Canada last time we were in Turkey to get them a bus ticket… wait, that wasn’t you was it? HAHA!

        Thanks. I will look into it. From what I have heard Istanbul is the toughest to find budget accommodations but other locales are easier. And nppe… sadly not us ;(

    I agree with Jade. I miss “homey food” as well when travelling. Great interview mama!

      Thank you to the queen of interviews… your “victims” are probably a little more willing. Take advantage of them when they are young and don’t think you are a blog geek!!!

        Hahaha. Wow, I’ve been called many things in my life, but never “queen of interviews” ๐Ÿ˜‰
        My oldest is afraid of being in the bathroom by himself, so when it’s time to take a shower he often says “mom, you wanna interview me?” Master negotiator at the tender age of 7.
        I’m sure your family loves your blog. What is there not to love? xx

        Your son is a smartie. My girls have started to add little comments about their pics now. Certain ones can go up and others can’t. I get that but when it comes to travel pics, we only have so many. It is not like I can go back there and have them redo it. Ha ha

        Haha, that’s true. I imagine they’re at the stage where the level of embarrassment is pretty high when looking at childhood pics.

        Yes, One says that pic is fine because my hair is good etc. and the other says no it isn’t. Look at me. I have no teeth and what was I thinking wearing that???

      Miss J. has a very sarcastic sense of humour but I guess I can’t blame her since I am pretty sure it comes from me!
