Twipper of the Week: Lauren from Lauren on Location.
Current city: Madrid, Spain
What makes you interesting: Well, this is a pretty subjective question! I guess just like any other Twipper, seeing the world is my great passion in life! It’s become such a part of me, and I don’t know if I’ll ever truly be happy without travel. I’m a new blogger, just starting out, and I’m not sure where it will take me, but for now I’m enjoying the ride!
Total countries visited: 21 and counting.
Most magical place on Earth: Oy, do I have to pick one?! How about 3 ?! Positano Italy, Sintra Portugal and my own backyard on Long Island, NY!
What does “travel” mean to you: For me travel is SO much! Travel allows me to open my eyes to diverse parts of the world and explore different places, cultures, peoples, foods, etc. I’ve learned to accept and understand parts of other cultures, as well as question parts of my own! Without a doubt, my travels have shaped me into who I am today!
What is your favorite mode of transportation when you travel: Airplanes!! There is just something about looking down on our world from above that gives me an incredible high!
If your personality was a city or country, which one would it be: San Sebastian, Spain! It’s the perfect combination of everything I love: beautiful beach, incredible shopping, plenty of parks, friendly people and of course AMAZING FOOD!
What is your most favorite travel memory: Hmmm, it’s hard to pick just one! When I was younger I used to love to travel, especially by plane. I can still remember the feeling I used to get when I would throw together my tiny backpack before a trip. I would fill it with all kinds of activities (picture books, coloring books, journals) and of course snacks to keep myself busy while traveling! There was nothing like it.
Next travel destination: Galway, Ireland for my birthday! Than heading to the US for the holidays. After that Munich and Salzburg in January!
