6. Tell us a funny story from your travels?
Funny story about my travels… Well a couple spring to mind….
Many years ago I went to Greece on my own
… booked into an ‘unofficial’ youth hotel… without a roof
… though that has nothing to do with the story
… I can’t remember if I was aware it was unisex…
however, I remember waking up on a bunk bed..
to see a mans bear bottom on the bunk next to me
… that was such a shock….
Another funny story – on my travels to New Zealand – we stopped at Hawaii
… my partner and I asked for ‘double room’ in a Hawaiin Youth Hotel (again an ‘unofficial’one)
… we were shown to this Huge room with multiple Double beds in it
- Hilarious – and Yes I think we did take it…
7. What are your Travel plans for the next year?
Travel as much as I can – wherever I can, whenever I want to…
8. How many countries have you been to?
Never enough – but so far about 15-20…
9. Tell us about a best and Worst Travel story
Refer to my Blog – about my ski trip Terror at the Top – Kindness which was Generosity for me.. helping a stranger in need….. though to me this wasn’t my worst travel story… it was an adventure….
