Question of the day.

Are you a light packer, or do you usually have an overstuffed suitcase?

My answer:

I like to pack a lot of things just in case, or such that make me feel more cosy at a strange place if I’m going to sleep there, so it often happens to be overstuffed I think. I always have a lot of chargers with me, and generally quite a lot of things that not everyone would consider necessary when going for a trip, but I definitely do. It’s not like I am petty though, I just like to have things that I’m used to with me especially when it comes to sleep, often I’ll even pack my little pillow ’cause you never know if I’ll like the pillows at the place where I’m going to sleep, or maybe I’ll still need one more pillow, haha.

You? 🙂

Question of the day (7th April).

Hey people! 🙂

DO you usually drive or fly when going on a holiday?

My answer:

I’ve never flew by plane in my whole life, and we usually go on holidays in the country so we drive most of the time. I am quite scared of the prospect of flying, mostly because I have balance issues because of something being wrong with my vestibular system, I don’t really know what exactly is wrong with it and why, I can only suspect that it could be somehow vaguely related to my blindness but then not all blind people have vestibular system issues, and diagnosis and labyrinth examination in the blind seems rather tricky. Anyway, some of the things I deal with because of it are quite odd and I can feel unwell just riding in the car, which is not just being car sick – although that’s how I usually compare that to people and how I refer to it when talking to other people who are unfamiliar and unlikely to get it for lack of a better, official and descriptive word, though I do get normal motion sickness sometimes too but it’s not quite as often and not quite as bad at all –
it’s like when a road is particularly bumpy, or very winding, or there is a hill, or someone is driving really fast, or I just have a bad day balance wise, because some days are definitely better and some are definitely worse, and it also seems to depend quite a bit on a kind of vehicle I’m riding, but in the wrong circumstances I can get all dizzy and feel generally strange sensations in my body and it’s also just plain scary. I have no idea if it would be the same on the plane or not, but trying it out feels quite creepy to me since I wouldn’t be able to just stop or go back or anything. When going to Sweden a while ago, we travelled by ferry to Karlskrona, and that was quite an exception from our normal, I was really determined to do it, but the travel was really difficult for me.

How about you? 🙂

Question of the day.

When was the last time you went on a family holiday? Was it good? Bad? Ugly?

My answer:

We don’t go on holidays that very often. The last proper family holiday we had, I mean a really long and faraway one, was the trip to Stockholm a few years ago and that was terrific albeit exhausting. If you can call something much smaller a family holiday as well, I’d say that my last one was last July. We went to Masuria – me and my parents –
quite spontaneously, it was my Dad’s idea. Due to many things, including poor planning and that my Dad is a really bad travel companion, and my Mum and me feel just as well, if not better, at home, this trip was ultra short and most of it was spent in the car, going back and forth, and then Dad looking around for a battery for his camera, which he never used in the end. 😀 He was also super irritable and irritating all that time. Oh well! I don’t feel the need to go for a holiday every year, I don’t think I lack anything particularly much where I am, and those things I do feel lack of in my life, I won’t suddenly get just because of the change of location most likely.

Question of the day.

Hi guys! 🙂

If you had to pack one bag and leave for anywhere in the world other than home, where would you go?

My answer:

I guess it would be really hard right now with the coronavirus spreading everywhere, both to travel safely and to make a sensible decision. But if I really had to, since pretty much the whole world is affected, I guess I’d choose one of the countries where they speak my favourite languages, if I would travel with my family, and it’s hard to imagine it otherwise, I would aim for the one that is less affected, though right now I don’t know which one it is. And even without the virus I’d certainly decide on one of my favourite countries.

How about you? 🙂

Question of the day (7th February).

Hiya people! 🙂

Sorry for the delay with this one, I was down with a migraine yesterday and couldn’t post.

Would you rather go camping or stay in a hotel?

My answer:

I’d stay home haha. But seriously, if I was travelling, I’d definitely go for a hotel. Camping is not my thing whatsoever, I believe it’s one of those things you either love or hate and I’m in the latter category. Travelling can be fun, but it’s also quite a bit stressful for me especially going somewhere further and for longer, and it’s always nicer when you can sleep in a more comfy place.

What would you go for? 🙂
