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
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 flew 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. 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…)
