About my blog “Traveller By Birth”:
As my blog name suggests, I started ‘travelling’ way before I even understood that word. Thanks to my passionate parents for introducing me to the wonderful outdoor world during my early age. I like telling my travel stories in such a way that makes people want to visit that place right away. Since, I think I have a good traveller’s instinct, I created this blog so that I can record my own travels and also be able to give great guidance, along with making a difference through my travel stories.
Answering Tasha’s questions:
Breaking news, all travel between countries are going to be banned but everyone is allowed one last trip. Where will you go and why?
Then I will go to Iceland. I have been wanting to see the Northern Lights since ages and my eyes are craving to see the waterfalls and all that beautiful nature that Iceland has to offer.
In what ways do you reduce your plastic usage whilst travelling?
I always prefer carrying my own refill bottle so that I don’t have to buy any plastic bottles. Also, recently I have bought some stainless steel straws so that I can use them instead of plastic ones. Another thing that I always keep in my purse is a spoon so that I can refuse to use plastic spoon given at ice-cream stalls or other such shops.
If you could see any animal in the wild, what would it be?
Brown bears with their cubs
Which do you prefer: the mountains or the city?
Tough to choose but if I have to pick one then, I think city. I love walking in the city, exploring the streets, watching people around and observing human traits.
If you could choose one cuisine to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Without a doubt, Italian! I can eat any authentic pasta dish all my life. It is my favourite since I visited Italy when I was 13.
What is the most adventurous activity you have ever done abroad?
I would say my whole trip to Scandinavian countries with my family was a very adventurous one. Not because we did some kind of sports there but the way we did that trip starting from booking it last minute to doing it completely on our own. We didn’t know how were we going to travel between countries, where were we going to stay and what were we going to see and do, but we figured it out one day at a time and went with the flow. That trip is and will be one of my most memorable one, ever.
What books have inspired you to travel?
I have been travelling since my age was of reading comic books. So I wouldn’t say that books have inspired me to travel, but yes some have surely made me add places in my bucket list. One of them is “Forgive Me” by Lesley Pearse, in which the author describes the girl doing a road trip from London to the Scottish Highlands, staying in the cottages in small towns on the way. That is one thing I really want to do and experience myself.
Which ‘Friends’ character are you most similar to and why?
I haven’t watched “Friends” as much, only few random episodes, but I took a test on the internet just for fun and it said I resemble “Phoebe”.
Some people travel for history, some travel for hiking, beaches, food, wildlife or luxury. What do you travel for and why?
Everything. I’m interested in various stuff altogether. I like history, old towns, hiking, mountains, chocolates. Every place is distinctively different from each other and I like to experience them in a whole manner rather than focusing on only one interest.
What is the most spectacular view you have ever seen?
So many of them, can’t pick one. But still to answer the question, I’ll say the one that I saw recently, was at the lake in Rangeley, Maine in USA. Totally breathtaking!
Pinterest. Works best to promote my blog. The pins last forever. Several people view or repin the pins repeatedly so even when I’m travelling and don’t have enough time to promote, it will still get traffic to my blog.
