  1. Thank you for nominating me! Here are my answers.

    1. my worst travel experience has to be when I got really ill in Switzerland and had to cut my trip short to fly back home. I had to take the train back to Frankfurt alone with no travel insurance or med. insurance with a fever and feeling crappy. I was really scared but luckily I found a pharmacy that was open to at least help me get the fever down.

    2. I have way too many that I like. But anything from Mumford & Sons I’m a fan.

    3. Anytime I talk about my grandfather, he passed away 6 years ago and every time I talk about him or think of him sometimes it always brings a tear to my eye.

    4. facebook & twitter

    5. Argentinean BBQ

    6. Someone who is not open and adventurous. I need someone who is willing to do things on a whim.

    7. I’m pretty low maintenance so the only thing I’d consider luxury is my camera.

    8. No not really.

    9. Hostels for sure! Its so much easier to meet people.

    10. I actually hate flying. I’m not afraid to fly, I just hate the groggy crummy feeling you get from a long flight. I’m usually not in a good mood after a flight. A nice shower, meal and sleep cures it.
