@snailx's travel meme

Long weekend 'meme fever' not as catchy as 'Bieber fever' but fun nonetheless...

What “City, Country” do you live in?
Sydney, Australia
What was the last country you visited other than your own (or that you want to if you haven’t been out of your country)?
What is your favourite kind of trip (i.e. camping, laying on the beach, cruise, etc.)?
Action/adventure with a little luxury - I need a reward if I'm going to trek through a jungle!
What is the farthest location south that you have gone?
Probably Santiago Chile or Queenstown NZ. Not sure of the latitudes
What is the farthest location north that you have gone?
Lubeck in Northern Germany. Near Hamburg. Quaint little place
What is your preferred mode of transportation when traveling long distances?
Absolutely flying. I love it!
What kind of vehicle do you own (or would like to own)?
Peugeot 307 turbo diesel
What is your ideal destination?
Oohhh. That's tough. I've been a lot of places. Somewhere with awesome food, lots to see and do, some adventure and some good relaxation too. I really loved Japan, Turkey, Croatia, Chile
Who is your favourite travel companion?
My current lover (of 13 years)
What is the largest city you have visited?
Tokyo - biggest city in the world but it didn't feel like it! Japan is amazing.
What destination would you recommend to a friend?
Depends... probably Thailand, it has so many options it could suit anyone's holiday desires
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
hmmm... Italy or Spain? Good food, friendly people and relaxed way of life
Sophie's bonus question - What's the highest altitude you've been?
5800 meters above sea level trekking in Peru

  1. Brilliant photo. Imagine waking up to that!

  2. I agree with the need for rewards after treks - these days if I backpack, I try and throw in the occasional hotel among the hostels. I've also just realised that I'd forgotten that NZ is SE of Oz which means Dunedin is probably the furthest south I've been not Melbourne.
