Twipper of the Week: Annika from The Midnight Blue Elephant.
Current city: Hamburg, Germany
Total countries visited: I don’t count countries.
What makes you interesting: Who said I was interesting? You would have to ask my lovely friends and family who like to hang out with me, but apparently I am funny for a German.
What’s your Travanality: Equal parts Epicurean, Purist, Soulager and Urbanite.
What is the most interesting food you have ever tried and where: A tarantula leg in Cambodia. I only ate it because the ‘princess’ of our group wanted to try it and I didn’t want to be left out.
What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: Food and diving excursions.
What are your travel rituals: I used to eat McDonald’s before every flight from New York to Germany when I lived there. Luckily there is no McDonald’s at my current airport so I quit that ritual. Now I’d say always trying to get to the airport super early but managing to run late, aisle seat, face spritz and a really nice hotel for my first night in a new destination.
Where and when were you the most culture shocked: Probably Lapland. I couldn’t believe there was actual reindeer running around in front of me and there could be so much snow in one place.
If you were given a free trip tomorrow, where would you go: Following the travels of Margaret Mead in the South Pacific.
Next travel destination: Sri Lanka!
