Last month, Sarah from Endless Distances created here very own Couple’s Travel Quiz Tag, full of questions about the person you travel with most. Carlos and I gave it a go this weekend while enjoying the hot Spring temperatures on Sunday.
So, we had to guess what the other person would say, and then answer the questions for ourselves:
Round One: Marcella
1.Where are you most likely to find Marcella in a new city she travels to?
Carlos’ answer: Walking around and exploring the city while trying to find the city’s little secrets.
Marcella’s answer: I would be doing that and also admiring the colourful street art and murals that are on offer, and snapping away at them with my camera. I think Carlos is used to having to stop a lot while I wander slowly behind with my camera.
2. What is Marcella’s traveling downfall?
Carlos’ answer: Marcella is not very good at sleeping on overnight buses and in Chile there are so many places that are the distance of an overnight bus away.
Marcella’s answer: That’s true, I’m really bad at sleeping on buses and planes! I might need to try the ‘salon cama’, which is when you have a fully reclined seat.
But for me, I would say my biggest downfall is that: I have no sense of direction and can’t read a map to save my life, eeek! Luckily, Carlos is great at both of those things!
3. What is Marcella’s traveling personality?
Carlos’ answer: Marcella’s travelling personality is that she is adventurous but also likes to plan adventures in advance.
Marcella’s answer: I would say, to not plan ahead (I plan the place but not anything we’ll be doing) and just see what we fancy doing day-to-day. I never research a place much and don’t worry about doing all of the ‘must see’ things, I’d rather just wander around and see where we end up, and it usually ends up being somewhere exciting!
4. Why does Marcella like to travel?
Carlos’ answer: Because she likes to discover new things: new landscapes, food and people. It satisfies her curiosity.
Marcella’s answer: I love to travel because you learn so much about new places, you get to see so much beauty and you learn a lot about yourself too. Travelling has taught me so so much.
5. What is most fun about traveling with Marcella? 🙂
Carlos’ answer: We like similar things; exploring new paths, seeing nature or wandering around a town or city.
Marcella’s answer: I agree! We make a great travelling team!
Round Two: Carlos
1. What is the place Carlos least wants to travel to?
Marcella’s answer: India, which breaks my heart a bit as my two times in India were priceless. Maybe one day Carlos will change his mind 😉
Carlos’ answer: That’s a hard one as I guess you don’t know until you are there, but I would avoid any very crowded and large cities. (I know he isn’t talking about London here 😉 )
2. What is Carlos’ favourite part about a new country?
Marcella’s answer: Exploring the mountains and lakes (if they have any!) He is pretty chilled out when travelling and is up for anything that a place has to offer, which works well for me!
Carlos’ answer: Probably tasting new foods for the first time. That’s one of the most intriguing aspects of visiting a new place, and I’m happy to keep on trying!
3. What is Carlos’ annoying habit at the dinner table while traveling?
Marcella’s answer: That Carlos always finishes eating before me so then I feel like I am left eating by myself, especially in countries like Colombia where they take your plate as soon as you are finished, rather than waiting for you both to finish. I kept trying to make him eater slower, hehe.
Carlos’ answer: I don’t know if it’s a habit I would never queue up for more than a few minutes, I just want to eat straight away. Well, at least sit down straight away, haha!
4. What does Carlos dislike about traveling?
Marcella’s answer: Carlos doesn’t like it when there are too many big crowds around.
Carlos’ answer: The planning part, especially trying to plan transport between places. Also, jetlag!
5. What is Carlos’s travel superpower?
Marcella’s answer: Reading maps and telling me the way to places, since I never have a clue!
Carlos’ answer: I adapt quickly to new circumstances which is always good when travelling!
That was fun, now it’s your turn!
