Tag Tuesday: The Travel Tag!


Since I'm not going away this year, I thought I would reminisce a little from all my past holidays and complete the travel tag! A little sad, I know! To be honest this tag is mainly for avid travellers and I've only really been to a few places but oh well! Imma do it anyway.

Please feel free to take this tag for yourself!

algarve holiday 
Me in the Algarve back in 2010!

1. Where are you from in the world?
I'm from the United Kingdom :)

2. Have you been overseas? When/Where?
Yes I have. I've not been to many different countries, mainly just Spain and Greece though. My first holiday when I was about 7/8 to Alcudia, Majorca and my last holiday though was to Paris!

3. Do you prefer summer or winter? Why?
Definitely Summer! I much prefer to wear sun dresses and sandals than jumpers and winter boots! I love the sun and being warm :)

4. Summer or winter fashion?
I do love Summer fashion but I do also like the colour schemes more for Autumn/Winter. Like the reds and oranges? Does that sound stupid!?

5. Where is somewhere you would love to travel to?
I'd love to go back to Greece but I would love to visit Italy next :)

6. Name your essential make-up items for the beach
Other than obviously sun screen - lip balm! I hate dry lips!

7. Are you currently saving up for a trip?
Not at the moment no :( But I do need to start if I ever want to go again!

8. Do you like/dislike travelling?
I LOVE travelling. I'd do it everyday if I could!

9. Name a place in the world you would love to shop.
Paris, but I've already slightly done that so I'd say Italy!

10. Who is your favourite beauty guru and where do they live?
I'm not sure that I have one?

11. What accent in the world is your favourite to hear?
Ooh French or maybe Spanish! Sexy

12. How many countries have you visited?
Eek! Not many - 4 I think :(

13. Why do you travel?
Normally just to get somewhere? ha

14. Favourite city or country? 
Paris is my favourite city but Greece was definitely my favourite country!

15. Most memorable experience abroad?
Probably standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and watching the light show. It was amazing!

16. Best item purchased abroad?
I don't to go shopping and buy that much when I'm abroad, but I do really love my miniature Eiffel Tower that I brought from Paris! It takes pride of place on my desk!

17. Advice for those who want to travel but think they can't?
Just go for it, you only live once!

18. Travel accessory you always pack?
Sun screen! Protect your skin!

19. Can you recite your passport # from memory?
God no! haha My memory is not that good.

20. Preferred method of travel: planes, trains or automobiles?
I do like driving but I do much prefer planes. I find them more exciting!

21. Top 3 Travel items?
Camera, iPod and decent walking shoes. The amount of times I've got blisters from cheap Primark sandals! Never again!

22. Hostel or hotel?
I've never stayed in a hostel so definitely a hotel!

23. Are you a repeat visitor or do you explore new places?
I do like to explore new places but I have no admit that the first places I look in brochures are places I've already been!

24. Do you read up on your destination for culture, history or safety or do you wing it?
I always like to research the places I go to first to see what there is to do there and places to visit! I wish I could be brave enough to wing it but I'd probably cry if I got there and it was horrible!

25. Favourite travel websites?
For what? Ideas - Tumblr, definitely. It makes me so jealous!

26. Where would you recommend a friend to visit? City and why?
It depends what they're looking for! I'd definitely say Paris for a bit of romance and I'd suggest somewhere fun like Ibiza or Benidorm for a laugh!

27. You're leaving tomorrow, money is no option, where are you going?
America! Florida maybe, or New York! Or LA! Basically, anywhere in America.

28. Favourite landmark you have visited?
Eiffel tower. It's the only one I've visited really!

29. Beach holiday or travel/explore holiday?
I've been on a few beach holidays so I'd like a travel/explore holiday next!

  2. Lovely post, I really want to go on another holiday this year, does that make me sound spoiled haha? I really want to travel in America, they have such amazing things to do!

    1. Definitely not! I'd go on multiple holidays a year if I could :) And same, I'd love to travel all over America, see everything! xo

  3. Lovely post!!


  4. Love this tag! Being half Greek I love that Greece is one of your favourite countries to visit! Growing up I always visited Crete for summer holidays and Athens for winter holidays as that's where my family live! In the last few years though I've discovered that my boyf loves Greece almost as much as I do so we've been exploring lots of other islands and I just love that each one is so beautiful and has it's own character (I know I'm biased haha) but I will never get bored of visiting different parts of Greece as there's so much to see xx
