I missed last week’s FMM. This week is one of my favorite topics.
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so others can see your FMM questions and answers. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
Where did your most recent trip take you? First stop was to the Plattsburgh, NY area to visit a very dear friend and from there we spent a night in Montreal.
Is there a place that you’d like to visit that you haven’t yet? If so, where? Honestly I would go anywhere. I love to travel. A few of the places I have always dreamed of visiting are Machu Pichu, Tibet, Australia, Italy and the Great Wall of China. I would also really like to start seeing more of the United States.
Do you travel lightly, or do you cram as much into your luggage as possible? It depends on where I am going. I like to travel as light as possible but with a small child that can be challenging. When my husband and I went to Bermuda for our anniversary we each took a carry on only. That made for easy traveling.
Do your eating and exercise habits change when you travel? If so, how? I try to continue making healthy choices. I research restaurants and travel with plenty of healthy snacks.
I no longer use travel as an excuse not to exercise. In fact it has actually become a reason to stay fit since we have been traveling to more race locations. If I am not running a race then I use the hotel gym or go out for a run. Travel usually involves lots of walking.
Tell us about a place you’ve been that you’d like to go back to. I would love to explore more of South Africa. I’ve been to Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Kruger National Park on safari but there is more I would like to see. I would also love to go back to Bermuda since we were only there for 2 nights.
Do you prefer to travel at a certain time of year? I don’t have a preference, but we do most of our traveling in the winter because it is easier for both my husband and I to take time off. As a mason he often gets laid off in winter and I’m usually not competing with the other 2 nurses at night for time off since most people vacation in the summer.
If you had to choose, would you go to the beach or the mountains? The mountains!
Have you ever needed a passport to travel? I got a passport when I was 20 for a month long study abroad program in Mexico. I have since used it many times for travel back to Mexico, Mozambique, South Africa, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Bermuda. The photo in my current passport is horrendous. I cannot wait to renew it.
My son got his passport just before his first birthday and we have to renew it this year already. He is so tiny in the photo. I remember taking him to the post office for the photos and we had to prop him up on a chair. Here I go getting all nostalgic again!
Do you collect anything in your travels? No. I try to take lots of photos to have lasting memories but that’s it. My husband has decided to start bringing home at least one piece of foreign currency from our travels to other countries.
Where do you plan to go next? We have tentative plans to travel to Vermont for a half marathon in May. I am hoping to do a couple of weekend getaways this summer and I am working on plans for a trip abroad in the fall.
Now it’s your turn! Have a wonderful Monday!!
