ABC Travel Tag

I saw this tag on one of the blogs, and because traveling is a big passion of mine, I decided to do it too. I hope you'll enjoy it!

A: Age you went on your first international trip: I think my first international trip was to Tenerife when I was three years old. I would really like to go there again, because I don't remember much...

B: Best (foreign) beer you've had and whereI don't drink beer; I can't stand the taste of it.

C: Cuisine (favorite): My favorite would probably have to be Italian, because I eat it all the time, but I also love French, Greek and Chinese (as long as it's not spicy). 

D: Destinations, favorite, least favorite and why: Up until now, my favorite destinations are Australia and London. I fell in love with Australia because of its magnificent nature, laid-back lifestyle and extremely friendly people, and London is just the place that will always be close to my heart. I love everything about it: the big city vibe, diversity, history and tradition, great shopping...
For my least favorite I have to pick Croatia. I just don't like their greediness and their negative attitude towards Slovenes. I'm not saying that all of them are like that, but I have a lot of negative experience (I 've spent about seven or eight summer holidays over there).  

E: Event you experienced abroad that made you say “wow”: Celebrating NYE in Sydney was pretty amazing. It's definitely something I'll never forget. 


F: Favorite mode of transportation: I LOVE airplanes (for longer destinations), and walking or subway for around the town. 

G: Greatest feeling while traveling: The anticipation of arriving to your destination. And pretty much everything that follows until the departure - the departure is always depressing. 

H: Hottest place you’ve traveled to: The Australian Outback. When we were at Uluru, it was 54°C! It was not as bad as it sounds, though. You just had to drink a lot of water. 




I: Incredible service you’ve experienced and where: La Grotta Hotel in Verona is worth mentioning. I  honestly didn't expect much from it before coming there. I though it would be just like any other small Italian three-star motel, but the service was amazing! I would definitely give it at least four stars. Anyway, the hotel was very modern and clean, the breakfast was delicious and offered a lof of different dishes, the receptionist was really friendly and helpful, and you even got a free mini bar, which they stocked daily. They have a really nice website now so you can see how it looks. When I was booking it, they didn't have it yet. 

J: Journey that took the longest: Journey to Australia. We were travelling for 2 days, we changed planes 4 times and spent exacly 22 hours up in the air.  

K: Keepsake from your travels: Lots of photos, tipical touristy souvenirs and handbags. Yes, handbags. I manage to buy at least one from every place I go to. Just so you get the idea of how much of a handbag addict I am, I can tell you that I bought three in Australia, four in London, two in Italy...

L: Let-down sight, why and where: I really don't know. I don't remember being disappointed with a certain sight. 

M: Moment when you fell in love with travel: I've had the travel bug since a very young age, but the key moment for me was probably the trip to London with my mother when I was 12. 




N: Nicest hotel you’ve stayed in: I really liked the Novotel hotel in London. I think it was the Paddington one. 

O: Obsession—what are you obsessed with taking pictures of while traveling?: I'm a pathological picture-taker. I take photos of absolutely everying. The only thing I don't photograph a lot is food, because I feel weird taking photos of it at the table when everyone around is watching. Well, I'm probably just imagining that everyone is watching me, but still...

P: Passport stamps, how many and from where?: I only have those from Australia, because we don't get stamps when we travel around Europe. 

Q: Quirkiest attraction you've visited and where: I have no idea. Some torture museums or museums of modern art would probably classify for that. 

S: Splurge; something you have no problem forking over money for while traveling: I'm not a saver type whilst traveling. I mean I'm not staying at five-star hotels and eating at really expensive restaurants, but I have no problem spending my money on sights' tickets and fashion/beauty products.

T: Touristy thing you've done: I'm quite a tipical tourist, so probably a lot of things. The only thing I usually don't like to do is travelling in groups with a tourist agency. I prefer organizing a trip myself so that I can see all the sights I want and then also explore an area, trying to find some amazing, not-that-known places. 

U: Unforgettable travel memoryThere are so many! I can't pick only one. 

V: Visas, how many and for where?: One for Australia. 

W: Wine, best glass of wine while traveling and where?: I don't like wine. :)

X: eXcellent view and from where? This question is really hard. I don't know. Maybe a view of the Twelve Aplostoles from a helicopter? Or watching the sunset in front of Uluru? Or maybe even London from the Lonon Eye? I really can't pick only one. 





Y: Years spent traveling?: If I started at the age 3 and am now 20 years old...17?

Z: Zealous sports fans and where?: Nooo, not the crazy sports fans! I saw some really intimidating football fans in Germany and in London. 




This is it! I know this was quite a long post, so congrats if you made it until the end! :D
