I was tagged by the lovely Loren from Minkys in the wanderlust tag. Being a travel addict, I couldn’t resist completing it of course.
So here goes,
That’s a tough one but I’d have to go with my Schengen Visa because it opened up the way for me to visit so many countries. I first got it when I went on a Contiki tour many years ago and then again in 2013, when I went to Italy and on a Mediterranean cruise.
Unfortunately not, although I do know my ID number if that counts. And I keep a copy of my passport on my phone and in My Dropbox, in case my actual passport gets stolen.
My favourite mode of travel is not listed here – ships. I absolutely love travelling by cruise ship, then luxury trains, then planes and lastly automobiles.
3) A collapsible bag for all the extra things I end up carrying around.
Definitely hotel – preferably five-star. I see my hotel as a sanctuary when I’m tired after a day of travelling so it needs to be a place where I am comfortable. Also,I’m an introvert and could never share my private space with strangers in a hostel - never mind share a bathroom.
Although I have visited some places more than once, I prefer to explore new places. My view is that there are so many places to still see in the world, so why go to the same place twice.
I definitely read up on it. I want to be as prepared as possible because I don’t want to end up in a position where I come back home and realise that I hadn’t seen something significant in the place I’d just been to. (I have a severe case of FOMO.) And yes, that happened to me in Singapore. So I’ve learnt my lesson.
I always use Tripadvisor to research places when travelling and to get advice from the forums. I use Booking.com and Airbnb to find good accommodation deals and make hotel bookings. What I like about Booking.com is that most bookings can be cancelled until just before your trip – so you don’t lose money on your accommodation in case something unexpected happens and you have to cancel your trip. I also use Travelstart and Skyscanner to find the best flight prices.
I’d say Istanbul. It’s a magical city, full of history, interesting architecture, fascinating culture and good food. It’s also the only city in the world which spans two continents, Europe and Asia.
The more I travel, the more my bucket list grows. I want to go to Japan, Australia, the Silk Route and the list goes on.
Another place I really want to go to is Norway, to see the Northern Lights, although I don’t know if I’d be able to bear the cold.

Thanks Julia. That's one of my favourite places - it's Burano in Venice, Italy.
Oh wow! Didn't realize that some houses in Venice looked so cute and colorful like that :)would love to go there one day!
I agree Julia it is really beautiful
It's a small island near the main Venice island. You go there by water ferry. It's like a make-believe world.
