#FeatureFriday – Barb Young
Happy #featurefriday! ? This week we had the opportunity to interview Barb, an experienced traveller who has visited many different countries and done a variety of tours and cruises. Want to be our next feature? DM us letting us know what your dream travel destination is! ?
Q: Where have you travelled to before?
A: I have travelled many places in Europe on an organized European Whirlwind tour in 2008. I spent a couple of weeks in Australia and New Zealand. I went on two Caribbean cruises. My late husband was from London, England; so, I spent some time there. This past September I stayed in Paris for a week and explored the city extensively. I then went to Barcelona and stayed in a hostel and again explored the highlights of the beautiful seaside city. After that, I travelled to the Burgandy region of France to a small town called Bissy sous Uxelles where my friend lives and toured the region. My next adventure is to Italy, specifically Venice and Florence to explore the food and culture.
Q: What is your dream travel destination?
A: My dream destination is Hawaii. I love sun, sand, culture and food and from what I’ve read, Hawaii has it all!
Q: What is the best part about travelling?
A: The best part of travelling is learning about other countries and immersing yourself in their culture, experiencing their food and lifestyle.
Q: Is solo travel more your thing? Or is it group travel?
A: I have done both types of travel- solo and group. I prefer solo travel as you can customize your itinerary to suit your preferences. You don’t have to compromise with others.
Q: What is one tip you would give any new travellers?
A: My tip to new travellers is to pack lightly, be comfortable and bring a day pack of some sort.
