The Coffee Dates series on Clear the Way is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Every coffee date I’ll answer some questions and I hope you’ll answer them, too. This month’s coffee date is a travel edition! (You can respond in the comments.) So grab a cup of coffee and join me for Coffee Date #8.
What was your most recent trip?
I feel like it was both forever ago and yesterday, but my latest trip was to Spain. My boyfriend needed to travel there for work and we decided to turn it into a vacation for us to share with each other. It was my first trip to Europe (something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now) and it was really nice. I especially enjoyed visiting the Crystal Palace, the Almudena Cathedral, and Royal Palace.
What are your favorite things to do and see while traveling?
I love to walk around and take in my surroundings by looking at the architecture and the sights all around me. I especially love visiting museums, because that’s something I enjoy doing at home in my familiar places. Seeing permanent collections and the ways things are laid out in museums abroad is exciting for me and is my ideal way to spend the day. I also enjoy learning about the architecture of certain, important buildings or just buildings that look amazing based on their own merit.
How do you document your travels?
I always take photos, of course, but I took it a bit further this trip. I kept a travel diary and detailed in writing all the places we went to, the food we ate, and the things we saw and did. I also took photos with my phone in order to print them out later and add into the pages. I’m still working on that project (in my small amounts of free time) and I am excited to share it when I’m finished. From now on, I have resolved to keep a travel journal for each adventure.
So tell me, Dear Readers:
- What was your most recent trip?
- What are your favorite things to do and see while traveling?
