The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
FMM: Travel

  1. Where did your most recent trip take you? 
    As far as I can remember my last trip was to London Ontario.
  2. Is there a place that you’d like to visit that you haven’t yet?  If so, where? 
    I would really like to go to Japan, I think it would be a really interesting experience.
  3. Do you travel lightly, or do you cram as much into your luggage as possible?
    Clothes wise I can travel pretty light if needed, though I do usually bring my fan to have on for when it is bed time, I like the noise.
  4. Do your eating and exercise habits change when you travel? If so, how? 
    If I am traveling for just a day or something I don’t worry about it. I just arrange my fitness routine around the trip and eat as I normally would.  Our last big trip was a cruise and I did put in exercise most days since I was up early.  My eating habits did change though, that trip (in January of 2011) was the end of me counting calories religiously.  I ate what I wanted pretty much, but steered away from junk food still.
  5. Tell us about a place you’ve been that you’d like to go back to. 
    I’d want to go back to Puerto Rico, we only had a few hours to stop there on the cruise and the food was great and we did not get to see much of the city.
  6. Do you prefer to travel at a certain time of year? 
    I think that would depend on where I was going.  Since I am in Canada I would prefer to go to warmer places like the Caribbean or say Vegas during the winter and explore my own country in the summer.
  7. If you had to choose, would you go to the beach or the mountains?
    I think I would choose the mountains.  I have a body worthy of the beach now I think, but I would assume that there is more adventure to be had on a mountain.
  8. Have you ever needed a passport to travel? 
    Yes.  For each of our cruises we first had to go to the US and then off to several countries.
  9. Do you collect anything in your travels? 
    when I go to Toronto or something, no.  When I have been in distant lands, yes.  I just try to get something that is representative of where I am.  I have sea shells from Antigua, a Mayan calendar carving from Belize, that sort of thing.
  10. Where do you plan to go next?
    Well we are going to Toronto next weekend, but really that is not exactly a ‘trip’, it is only an hour and a half drive (depending on traffic).  There are no big plans set in place but I know Amber would like to go to Vegas or on another cruise.  I’d prefer the cruise.


  1. Just stopping by from FMM. I was supposed to go on a cruise this past Nov but had to cancel due to a death in the family. I heard they are great fun! a friend of mine loves to cruise to Alaska...says it is the best cruise he has even been on.

  2. Amber is planning to go on a cruise with her husband for March break 2013. As she is a teacher she can sadly only take her holidays during regularly scheduled school breaks and Chris hates the heat so traveling to a hot destination in the summer is out. And, cruises over Christmas are super expensive. She would like to go on a Southern Carnival cruise that departs from Puerto Rico so she can spend an extra day or two there with Chris beforehand.

  3. So nice to "meet" another Canadian! We'd love to go on a cruise - it's on the list for when the kids get older (and can be trusted to be left by themselves)!!

    Most of our travel now is based around where we plan on racing - allows us to kill two birds with one stone!

  4. Came by from FMM. Will that calendar from Belize carry you all the way into 2013, or does it end early? Haha. Japan and Puero Rico are both really interesting answers, I've been to neither but would like to go to both.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog for FMM! It is great to come across other Canadian bloggers, we seem so few at times!

    A cruise sounds so nice! Hope to try one some day, worried about spending it all sick though as someone who even in my mid 30's can get car sick on occasion lol.

  6. Stopping by from FMM! Always great to meet other Canucks!
    I've only done one cruise and that was in Greece for an island hopping cruise. Those boats aren't nearly big enough to really qualify as a full on "cruise" though! Someday!
