Question Wednesday Blog Hop {Travel Edition}

This tag originates from Nykki's Mane blog. I don't plan to do it every week, only when I find the subject inspiring. This time Questions Wednesday questions are about travelling, a much beloved subject and perfect for breaking the long silence here (hint: it had something to do with travelling :))You can see what other bloggers answered here. 

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
I have done a fair share of travelling around Europe, touched the ground in Asia and even been to Africa once. Now my radar is set on Asian and Arabian countries and Caucasus region. I would especially like to go to Vietnam, Thailand, Azerbaidjan and Georgia. Saudi Arabia or Iraq would definitely be interesting, but a bit dangerous though, so I guess it's not gonna happen in real life. On completely different note, I also crave a summer vacation trip to Croatia.

2. Where is the coolest/best place you have ever traveled?
Hmm... I think it's impossible to make a statement like this, because each place is cool and unique in an whole different way, be it close to home or far-far away.

The list of my favourite destinations is quite long. I would always visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi again in an heartbeat, because it is a great all-in-one destination: interesting architecture and world's tallest skyscrapers, huge malls and exotic souk's, beautiful beaches and a selection of cool leisure activities all within a short cab ride. Not to mention the incredible luxury everywhere. The Sex and the City girls didn't have half as much fun there as they could have had :)

I also like Turkey very much for exotic food, historical sights and shopping opportunities (the biggest beauty haul of my life happened in Turkey!), Germany is great for business and beer, Barcelona and Budapest for sun, beautiful sights and wine tasting, Ireland for being such a friendly, cozy and home-like country and so on.

3. How do you feel about road trips?
I am definitely in. I have been on two really long ones, one of them was more than 8000 kms and another about 4000 kms long. It's an easy way to travel, I like the independence a car gives you and being free of stupid air travel regulations.

4. You just won two tickets to your dream vacation, who's going with you?

My husband of course.

The Dubai Laguna. World's tallest building Burj Khalifa is still being built on the background.
Nice roadsign, isn't it?

5. Airport security is only allowing you to take 3 make-up items with you, what are they?
Some face powder to control the shine, a mascara and moisturizing lipgloss.

Reisides on keeleoskus hädavajalik, siin on võimalus seda harjutada :)

  1. Jee, lõpuks ometi sinult üks postitus jälle - super pildid ja põnev jutt. Totally agree with you about language skills. :D (no kui ka päris 100% korrektne pole, siis aru saab ja hakkama saab alati :) )

  2. Aitäh! Selle kommentaari üle olen tõeliselt õnnelik, sest kui tavaliselt palun pilti teha oma mehel, siis need on 100 % mu enda tehtud (ja unedited, sest seda ma üldse ei valda ja usun siiralt, et foto peaks olema kohe OK ilma arvutis parandamiseta).

    Päris raske oli ligi 800 pildi seast siintooduid välja valida, sest suurem osa paremaid pilte oli ikkagi hoopis teisel eesmärgil tehtud.
