What is your favorite aspect of traveling and if you are a travel blogger, why did you decide to create your website?
My favourite aspect of travel is the exciting new stimulus that comes along with something new. This could be the cultural, food or other experience aspects that prevents me from becoming bored! Also, I only travel so I don’t run out of dinner party conversations! I started The Travel Tart in 2009 because I saw the enormous potential of how blogging can lead to some fantastic experiences based on talking to others who were running blogs.
How many continents have you visited?
How many countries have you visited?
What is your favorite destination in the world and why?
All of the places I’ve been to and all of the places I haven’t been to yet. It’s impossible to compare places because they all offer something different, so I’ve enjoyed every single destination that I’ve been to.
If money/time was no object and you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you travel to and why?
Space! One of my life goals is to score a junket on Virgin Galactic and have a Space Beer (yes, such a thing exists) with Richard Branson in space.
Which of the following gadgets do you take on your travels?
Camera, Phone, Laptop and sometimes, a remote controlled fart machine. Fart jokes are universal, and every culture understands them!
What is your preferred method of transport?
Car and Suicidal Cairo Cabs
Complete the following, “Everywhere I go, I visit….”
Learn the following 5 words in the local language – hello, goodbye, please, thank you, beer and combinations of those!
