Small, happy and lusting for..Rome!

Soooo, a new year, a new year of travel and first up on my list this year is looking like the eternal city, the beautiful Rome.

I've never been before and it's one of a small handful of European cities that I have yet to visit so have decided that 2015 is the year to change that!

From what I've seen from Eat, Pray, Love, The Lizzie McGuire movie (yes, my tastes are that discerning and diverse) and my own research and knowledge, Rome looks to be an absolutely treasure trove of beauty, history and stunning architecture. 

We're thinking of going in Easter time, prices allowing and I would love to hear some tips from any experienced Rome visitors? Any must see places? How about food?! Always the most important place to start the research I feel...

I look forward to being able to pick up a few Italian phrases and to enjoy the Italian lifestyle for a few days this year! 

Ciao all!

Small, happy and the WANDERLUST tag!

I absolutely love travel. Love love love it. As soon as I'm back from one trip I get that desperate urge to be planning something else. I know it's bad to spend your life counting down to events and I should be savouring every moment etc etc and I do, but counting down to a trip just makes evey day so exciting!!

I've been lucky through my degree and choice of work that I have quite a few weeks off work throughout the year and as such travel addiction can be fed and is only growing the more places I see!

So let's kick this off, the wanderlust tag! I've seen this floating around on a few blogs and vlogs so I just had to give it a whirl!

Let's set off...

1. Where was your first plane to?
It will have been to Faro, Portugal. Being half Portuguese I have all my mum's side of the family there so we go every year to see them all. The first time being as a two month old on my very first plane! I'd liked to imagine that I was a perfectly behaved baby the whole time. Seeing as I've never heard anything to the contrary and yet I've heard many a relative laugh about how my sister was such a crier I'll take that to mean that I was a little travel pro from the get go!

2. Where have you travelled to that you'd love to visit again?
Easiest question I've ever been asked, New York, I would go tomorrow if I could. And the next day, and the next day...

3. You're leaving tomorrow, money is no object. Where are you going?
I kind of answered this in the second question but I'll expand it to say I'd do an American tour and then end in the Maldives!

4. Preferred method of travel; planes, trains or car?
I like how with planes you can pretty much go anywhere, however the faff of security and the effects of long haul travel aren't my favourite parts of travel at all! I like the ease of trains, you can get up, wander around and you can watch through the windows to see where you're going. Plus they don't dent my bank account as much as planes do!

5. Favourite travel website?
I love sta travel, purely because being under 26 this is where I book all my flights for my big exciting trips so I always associate it with big adventures!!

6.  Where would you travel just to eat the food?
Hmm, this is hard. I'd love to go to Japan and try all of their sushi and sashimi and ramen. In fact yeah, that wasn't hard at all, Japan!

7. Is there a place you would never go again?
This year whilst in Brazil we popped down to the Iguazu falls which were pretty amazing,however I've seen them now and the area they're in offer nothing else to see really so I probably wouldn't go there again.

8. Can you recite your passport number from memory?
I reckon I could have a good go and get about 50% of the numbers right so probably not a risk I'd be willing to take!

9. Do you prefer the window, middle or aisle seat?
I have the world's smallest bladder so aisle seat every time. One of the easiest ways to piss off a total stranger is clambering over them for the fourth time that hour to 'nip to the loo' while they're trying to sleep.

10. How do you pass the time on the air plane?
Reading, watching inflight entertainment, writing my diary, bugging my travel buddy and asking him lots of boring, lengthy questions. And then getting sad when he mysteriously falls asleep...

If anyone else has done this tag let me know, I love reading these things!
