Like I said before, my word for 2015 is explore and wanderlust is the greatest fuel there is to adventure. Today the girls over the #BrunchClub shared the Wanderlust tag, which is a series of travel-related questions, and I decided to join in and post my answers.

Where was your first plane to?

From my hometown in the Northeast region of Brazil to Curitiba, in the South, where I lived for 17 years before moving to New Zealand.

Where have you traveled to that you would love to visit again?

Japan, for sure! How can you not fall in love with a country that makes videos like this?

You’re leaving tomorrow, money is no object, where are you going?

Capri, in Italy, for a luxury romantic holiday. And even if you skip the luxury, the scenery and food and wine make up for it.

Preferred method of travel; planes, trains or car?

Road trips turn the journey into part of the fun, but planes cover longer distances, so it’s hard to choose. And just the other day I caught myself looking up prices for the Trans-Siberian Express.

Favourite travel website?

Skycanner for cheap tickets, Pinterest for inspiration.


New York City


Where would you travel to just eat the food?

India. Sightseeing can wait, first let me try all the different curries, the variety is astonishing!

Is there a place you would never go again?

I wouldn’t say “never”, but Paraguay is way down my list of countries to return to.

Can you recite your passport number from memory if asked?

Not really… I know some of the letters and numbers but always get the order wrong.

Do you prefer the Window, Aisle, or Middle seat?

Window. It’s crammed anyway, might as well enjoy the view.

How do you pass the time on the air plane?

Playing Monopoly with my husband on his phone, or watching movies. I admire those who can read on a plane but I get too distracted.
