11 questions from fewmilesaway

  1. Backpacking trip or luxury trip ?
    Backpacking trip, we prefer to travel freely as cheap as possible, and meet local people.
  2. Where is the best place that you have ever been and why ?
    The Atacama Desert in Chile, because there is no place like this, the landscape is amazing, the food is just delicious and the people so friendly. Plus, there’s loads of Pisco sours too!
  3. Where is your next big vacation ?
    We are planning to travel around the world starting next October 🙂
  4. What 3 things would you pack if you were stranded on a desert island ?
    A book full of beautiful stories (like the great I Thought My Father Was God by Paul Auster), an iPod to listen to music and sing along (so we don’t go mad!) and a knife because it will come handy…
  5. What’s your biggest travel regret ?
    When we decided to stop for a night on the way between Logrono and Saragossa in Spain… My god, it was ugly!

    To Peru to visit Macchu Pichu!

    In couple, because with friends it’s difficult to get organized, and mainly because together we know each other and we have things in common, we like to travel the same way.
  8. Describe your fairytale home.
    Ok, it should have wings… does that count as a home? 🙂 Now seriously, we’d like to live in a small house somewhere sunny and not far from the sea… and with a nice garden to have barbecues and somewhere to plant mint for our mojitos!
