The Travel Tag

There's no style of post that I love more than a good tag post. I love reading them because you get to know the author better but I love posting them too because you learn a lot about yourself that you might not have realised! Well, I do anyway!

The beautiful Iga Berry tagged me in the Travel Tag earlier today, and I thought why the hell not...


You are leaving tomorrow to start a life in a new country, where do you go?

After the result of the EU Referendum back in June, I'd decided it wasn't something I wanted to be a part of anymore. I did some very serious research into moving to Canada. I have friends and family over there so I wouldn't be completely alone. Plus I love the idea of hot summers and snowy winters and never being too far from a mountain I could ski down! Whilst I've put off moving there for the time being, I'll be visiting Canada next year!

You can take someone for a weekend away to the place you had the best holiday, where would that be and who would you take with you?

George. Obviously. There's nowhere I'd want to go without him, so that one's kind of a given. I reckon Barcelona, that was where I was when I first realised I loved him, really loved him, so I'd love to go back! Plus the city is incredible and Gaudi, well Gaudi is out of this world!

You can get married wherever you want to, your budget is limitless, what is your choice?

New York. George knows this. I'd absolutely love (even though I know it's not possible) to get married under the Gothic Bridge in Central Park, surrounded by fairy lit tree's! If you've seen this video of Taylor Swift performing Back to December, then you'll know the bridge! I'd then like to head to roof top bar someone and dance the night away as the skyline changes colours!

I've got the fantasy wedding all planned out :P


During your travels, you bring home one animal as a pet, which one would you pick?

An Elephant. I love Elephants.

You can go back in time and relive one family trip, which one?

Rhodes, Greece, 2003. I didn't get to go on many holidays as a kid, but this one with the entire of my Dad's side of the family was the best, without a doubt!

What is the first thing you would pack for a one year travel around the world?

Underwear. Lots of it. Even in my hand luggage. After travelling 18 hours across the world, landing in Bali and spending 5 days with no suitcases, there's nothing I would be more keen to make sure I had than a clean pair of knickers! TMI?

In an ideal world, though, where suitcases don't get lost, it'd be my camera! I'm extremely forgetful and like to take pictures so that I can remember when I forget!

What would your fantasy 100th birthday destination be, and why?

Assuming I'm old and not very mobile anymore, Italy. I love the food, it's not too hot and the country is just beautiful.

If by some miracle I was old and decrepit, a first-class ticket to Thailand. The country is what sparked my love for travel and will always hold a piece of my heart!

During your travel you can learn one sport to become a pro, what would that be?

Probably Scuba Diving, I was hoping to get my first Padi qualification in Bali last month but didn't get the chance. I have mild panic attacks when I snorkel so to be a pro at Scuba Diving would be incredible. I love skiing though too, so to be a pro (and at an equal level to George) would be a dream!

I'm going to keep it super simple, Rhaea it's your turn!

Love always,
Melissa

  1. This is such a cute tag! I love it :) Really cool that you're interested in Canada, too, because that's where I live! We definitely get the huge contrast between summers and winters here in Ontario (not so much on the west coast, although I actually prefer their gorgeous scenery of ocean, mountains, lakes and forest, haha!)
