Meet the Bloggers: Weird Question Weekly
In the spirit of getting to know your bloggers better, we will be answering a string of sometimes serious, sometimes silly questions in the coming weeks. Please feel free to ask us something in the comments. We want to tell you what you’d like to know!
This week’s question: Given the choice, what place would you most like to travel to?
Kara: The world is sort of huge and amazing, how are you supposed to pick a single place? I think I’d have to go with Wales, though. I love the myths from Wales, and I have always wanted to wander around the more rural areas, and see for myself all the places that I’ve read so much about. I also have a ridiculous fondness for Welsh accents, and I would love nothing better than to able to speak the language one day. Oh, and they officially have the world’s coolest flag as well.
Anna: I have travelled to something like 12-13 countries, lived in four. I love discovering new places and cultures, love heading out on a plane, a train, a roadtrip with friends. That being said, I’ve only really explored North America, Great Britain and Europe. I’ve always wanted to travel in Asia (a challenge because of my fish and seafood allergies) and go to Australia, the latter especially because I have family there. Seeing pictures or videos taken in a place can in no way replace the experience of actually being in those places.
Quinn: My favourite place to travel is hard to define. I have a huge travel bug and have loved to travel since I was little. There are really three places that have my heart. First, a small town in coastal Connecticut, Stonington, has a lovely and peaceful beach that really feels like home. Second, I have always felt so alive when I’m in New York City, especially seeing a Broadway show. Finally, the place I will go back to as soon as I can, the place that really has my heart and dreams is London. I’ve read British books since I was small and it just feels comfortable to me.
Elizabeth:I haven’t been many places, but I know where I’d like to go- Pompeii, the Anne Frank House, the Killing Fields… It goes on and on. There is something amazing about these places that capture human history in such a way that you are instantly transported back to that time period and that event. I would love to visit Uruk, where the Epic of Gilgamesh originated, and the Pyramids of Giza, to wonder about their story. It might sound cliche to want to visit all of these common tourists sites, but I am fascinated by their stories and wouldn’t be able to help myself.
Erin: Without a doubt, I would most like to travel to Ireland. In particular, Clare Island on the west coast. Other than the obvious that I’m an Irish dancer and have been fascinated with Ireland and Irish culture, one of my favorite historical people is Grace O’Malley, Ireland’s 17th century pirate queen. Her home was on Clare Island and one of her several castles still stands there. She is also supposedly buried there. It’s an absolutely beautiful island, from everything I’ve seen in pictures.
