Ten On Tuesday

13 Apr

Check out everyone’s answers at Chelsea’s blog, Roots and Rings!

1. What book, movie or song has made you want to travel to a particular place? (eg. I went to Prince Edward Island because I was such a Anne of Green Gables fan)

Every Jane Austen, murder mystery, or romance novel has made me want to travel to England. The book In A Sunburned Country made me want to return to Australia.

2. Aside from your significant other, who would you want to take with you on a dream trip?

Hmm, maybe my friend Nicole, because she is adventurous and probably wouldn’t mind my obsession with museums.

3. Where would said dream trip be to?

India, Viet Nam, Australia, and Thailand. Maybe Russia and China while I’m over there.

4. If you were hosting guests or providing tips, what three things would you show visitors to your hometown? (be it where you live now or where you grew up)

Rice University campus, Hermann Park, and queso. Houston isn’t all concrete, but some of our best destinations are food, haha!

5. If you had a long weekend ahead of you, where you head – beach, city or country/mountains?

Beach – it’s gorgeous right now!

6. Do you have a passport? If so, did you get it for a particular trip or just to have, in case?

Yes, I got my passport when I went to Australia and New Zealand in high school, and since then have used it for France, England, and Mexico.

7. Are there any travel souvenirs you collect? If not, is there something else you collect?

I used to collect spoons, haha. That might be fun to start doing again.

8. If you could name a paint colour, what colour would it be and what would you call it?

Hmm. After painting our bedroom, I have concluded that I am not creative enough to be a paint inventor. Our room color is “chopsticks” – isn’t that adorable?

9. If you were heading away for a weekend citybreak solo, where would you go? (forget about practicality here and flight times, assume you can get to any city in the world for the weekend)

I would go to San Diego to visit my friends Shorty and Jimmy!

10. Is there a song or a smell or something that you strongly associate with a particular holiday/place/time, such that it always takes you back?

Yes, tons of them. The one that comes to mind is that acrylic plastic smell from an umbrella I had when I was little. Also, the sweetpea smell of my Strawberry Shortcake shampoo is still a vivid memory.
