I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. – Susan Sontag
I think traveling is one of the greatest things in the world and I’m really not doing enough of it. I really hope that one day, I will earn enough money to travel all around the world because that would really be awesome. I can’t say that so far, I haven’t been anywhere, though.
I definitely feel like planning a new adventure for the futuree, so this tag is perfect for thinking about all the places I still want to see. Just so you know, A LOT. Thank you so much This and Tatt for thinking of tagging me in your post. This is a super fun one.
I would like to tag some wonderful people, as well. My dear friend Gwennan from 20 Something Meltdown, Naomi from Teatime with Naomi and Kirsty Rose from Me, Cupcakes and Tea. Please share your travel dreams with us.
1. You are leaving tomorrow to start a life in a new country, where would you go?
Until two years ago, my answer would’ve always been the US. But I’ve already lived there several times and I just feel like I currently want something else. Knowing me, this can change any minute, though. Right now, I would pack my bags and move to London. I think it’s a fantastic city and it’s not too far away from home. Furthermore, most of my blogger friends live in England and I could finally meet some of them. So yeah, if anybody has a job for me in London, let me know.
2. You can take someone for a weekend away to the place you had the best holidays ever, where would that be and who would you take to go with you?
I would always choose my best friend in the whole wide world. We don’t see each other too often and a weekend with my favorite girl would be amazing. I don’t really care where we would go cause the two of us would have a blast, even in the crappiest place. We had a fab trip to London once so we could definitely go back there. Or I would show her San Francisco because I know she would love the city. A weekend wouldn’t be enough, though.
3. You can get married wherever you want to, your budget is limitless, what is your choice?
Marriage is really not my thing, but the thought of a wedding is one that I love. Does that make sense? Anyway, ever since I was 15 or 16, I knew exactly where I would want to get married, if that ever happened. (Yeah right!) It will cost a fortune because I can be a little extravagant but oh well. You only get married once, right?! Haha! So my place to get married is in Potzdam, Germany (close to Berlin). There is a place called Sanssouci Castle and the garden is a dream. My spot has a big pond, staircases made of stone, a big green lawn and it’s just beautiful. The moment I saw it, I knew that this would be the place. I can’t explain to you why, but when you find the place, you just know.

4. During your travels you can bring back home one animal as a pet, which one would you pick?
Can I pick two? I always wanted a chimpanzee because they are brilliant animals. When I was kid, there was a German TV-show which had one named Charlie as the main character and he just lived with a family of human beings and I thought it was fantastic. The other animal would be a dolphin because I just love them, a lot. When I went swimming with them, it was one of the greatest experiences ever. And I saw some wild ones, as well and they just fascinate me. I don’t know how I could make them an adequate home but this is only hypothetical thinking, right?!
5. You can get back in time and relive one family trip, which one?
My favorite family trips where those to Disneyland. When I was a child, my family and me went on vacation to San Diego, and I absolutely loved it. My highlight was definitely visiting the happiest place on earth. When I graduated from high school, my mom surprised me with a trip to Disneyland Paris and we had such a fabulous weekend. It was a dream come true and I would definitely not mind re-living either visit.
6. What is the first thing you would pack for a one year travel around the world?
My camera, for sure. I guess there are more important things I should take with me, but it didn’t happen when you don’t have pics to prove it, right?!
7. What would your fantasy 100th birthday destination be, and why?
The question is if I would even be able to travel when I’m 100. I highly doubt that but ok. I can’t think of a specific destination right now but I’m sure the beach would be a great place to be. Or Disneyland cause I totally wouldn’t mind rocking some mouse ears when I’m 100.
8. During your travel you can learn one sport to become a pro, what would that be?
Oh man, I’m so terrible at these things. I tried water skiing twice and I don’t even have words to describe how much I sucked. It would be awesome to finally master it, though. And then learn how to wakeboard because I think that’s even cooler.
