In Travel: Would You Rather


This blog has been a little quiet as of late so I spotted this post by A Modern Girls Travels and I thought it was a lot of fun. I think it will also show you a bit more about me. I will be back very soon with more adventures!

Q: Would you rather travel the world for free for life (hotels & airfare) or have $400,000 deposited into your bank account now?

A: Easy, travel the world for free. Accommodation and flights are so expensive for the plans I have so if they were taken care of it would be amazing! $400,000 is just money and the only things I want to buy would be a 4×4 and camera gear and I don’t actually need them!

Q: Be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages?

A: This is so difficult because I do want to be Eliza Thornberry, like for real. I would love to talk to animals but I also would love to communicate with everyone all over the world. I think to live out a childhood dream I’d have to choose talk with animals.

Q: Would you rather be attacked by a shark or die by a tornado?

A: I’d rather be attacked by a shark, when I’m 90 and on my way out. This is actually how I want to kick it, not a day before! Sharks are amazing and if I was to leave the earth giving back would be ok by me but not before I’m 90!

Q: Never take the train or never take an airplane again?

A: Ha trains can go suck it. Even though I want to do some famous train rides I would rather rent a car and see the world that way rather than trains. Trains can’t get me to hawaii and small islands off indonesia, all I need are planes and boats!

Q: Would you rather visit the Oktoberfest in Munich or Carnival in Rio De Janeiro? 

A: Neither? Can I choose the Sakura festival in Japan?

Q: Take control of the airplane for five minutes (it’s on autopilot, but still…) OR take control of beverage service for the entire trip?

A: I don’t drink and I buy my water in the airport. Being in a cockpit would be an incredible experience. I have always wanted to look out the front window!

Q: Wake up without your wallet or wake up without your passport and phone?

A: Wallet. Since I am going to be solo travelling a lot more being with out money is an inconvenience but without my identity and the piece of tech that holds all of the travel info I need, I would be a wreck. If I was to be in an accident I’d rather be able to call for help. I lost my phone in Iceland and I was a mess!

Q: Be left behind in the bush on an African safari or Be left behind in the water on a scuba trip?

A: This is an interesting question. Do I risk getting hypothermia in the water or drowning, risk being bitten or stung? Or do I stay out in the bush, where animals will kill me in the dark or I might get sun stroke? This is a horrible question. I think I will go for the bush because at least on land I could walk and try and hone my Bear Grylls skills (which would probably be non existent!)

Q: Lose your luggage but land on time OR land 12 hours late with your luggage intact?

A: Lose my luggage, I can always buy more clothes. Plus the airline will pay for the replacement luggage. 12 hours late is horrible, that’s twelve hours less fun you could have!

Q: Visit every country in Europe of every state in the United States? 

A. Oooo well I’ve been to 15/46 countries in Europe but have only been to one state in the US. I would probably choose the US, there is a epic road trip I want to do. I want to see all of those weird roadside fruits and peanuts or a beagle! The US is mad so definitely all 52 states!

Q: Move every six months (including internationally) or live in the same place your entire life?

A: Hmm every 6 months would be really hard but I am not living in Ireland all my life. So 6 months. To understand the world, living in different parts of it would be amazing!

Q: Be able to teleport to places you’ve already been or only be able to teleport to places you’ve never been before? 

A: I think I have to choose places I’ve already been. There is so much I want to go back and see and if I could teleport quickly back to South Africa, Iceland or Australia it would be incredible!

Q: Would you rather go into the past and tell yourself to change one thing that’s happened or go into the future and see what your life ends up being like?

A: I’d like to see if I end up happy. Going back and telling my past self to do something wouldn’t do a thing. I am stubborn and stupid so I wouldn’t take my advice. Knowing if I end up happy would be important. If I wasn’t happy I could try and keep as positive and mentally healthy as possible.

So would you want to wake up without your wallet or wake up without your passport and phone? Let me know in the comments! 

Thanks so much for reading!

Happy Travels!
