And here, ladies and gents, is the second part of my blog-interview collaboration with the talented pair at Taleoftwobloggers!
1. What would be your pro-travel tip?
My pro travel trip is to plan ahead, it’s better to spend a bit more money on
central accommodation rather than having a cheaper stay and you’d have lots
of travel, especially if time is of the essence. Whilst an itinerary is good, don’t
restrict yourself. (S)
Always try to pack light; I know that I am no one to judge, but this one is very true. I
like to have everything organized before I travel abroad because I find myself getting
slightly flustered when it comes to the unknown. Although, with that being
said, I do like having a spontaneous adventure every once in a while. I also prefer to
find an accommodation which is central so that I wouldn’t have to waste too much
time and money to get to the attractions. (A)
2. Where’s your favourite place in Malta?
My favourite place is Top of the World in Gharghur! It’s got the most beautiful
views, it’s quiet, and there’s quite a nice walk to do. (S)
Even though I haven’t really explored most of Malta (since I don’t drive), I’d have to
admit that my favourite place is in fact Marsascala because of the number of
restaurants, and of course, the relaxing breeze. I remember my mother used to take
me to playground quite often back when I was about six years old, and I grew up
loving the place too much. (A)
3. Favourite country?
I’ve been to quite a number of countries, my favourite country is England
specifically the city of London. Any other favourite city/country will have to
come second place to London. So as not to cheat I would say either Holland
(Amsterdam), Poland (Krakow), Czech Republic (Prague), Norway (Oslo) or
Germany (Berlin). (S)
To be honest with you, I have only travelled to a handful of countries so far, so I can’t
really say that I have experienced a lot. However, London has a very special place in
my heart; no thanks to Sarah for getting me addicted! It is honestly one of those
places that I never really get bored of visiting – like it’s the first time I’m travelling there
every time I visit. (A)
4. Favourite YouTube Channel?
Sophdoesnails definitely! (S)
I enjoy watching Sophdoesnails, Glam&Gore, and Katrin Berndt. The first one is a
beauty channel, second one is an SFX makeup channel (mostly), and the last one is
about life and beauty. (A)
5. What’s the biggest societal pressure you find yourself facing?
That just because I’m a certain age I should be doing certain things. (S)
Well, to be quite honest with you, the thing that’s pressuring me the most at the
moment is the fact that I’m soon going to reach the end of my course and so the
pressure to find a full-time job is super high at the moment. I have said to myself that
since I finish in May, that I would first take a break and actually allow myself to enjoy
summer (because I deserve it), then look for a full-time job, but I guess that without
knowing, I’m already panicking about the fact that most of my course mates would
already probably be working by then. Again, such irrational worries. (A)
6. What’s your ideal type of date?
Food. Any food. Followed by some chill time, maybe a walk, or a bottle of wine
and some gossip. Depends really if it’s a “first date” type of date, or if you’re in
a relationship. (S)
If there is food involved, then I am definitely going to like the idea. I don’t go on too
many dates but if there’s anything that really wins me over, it is simplicity. It’s the
thought that counts, I think. Of course, if you feel like taking me out to a fancy sushi
restaurant, then I’m surely not complaining! (A)
7. What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?
I had plans but University of Malta thought otherwise, so back to the drawing
I’m single, so umm… no plans, obviously, right? (A)
A big thank you goes to Abigail and Sarah, once again, for taking a keen interest and agreeing to do this collaboration with me!
I found this to be a very interesting exercise, and it was a pleasure to get to know the two of you more! I certainly look forward to the possibility of having further blog collaborations in the future. Write on, ladies!
