Some of My More Interesting Travel Stories

Today, someone said to me: “Tell me something interesting about yourself.”

The first thing that came to my mind was, “I’m just an average girl doing average things that make me happy, with not much special about myself.”

Living in Spain

I guess some people might think moving to a small white village on top of a mountain in Southern Spain to teach English for a year could be an interesting travel story?

New Years Eve in Iceland

Maybe spending New Year’s Eve in a bikini in Iceland’s Blue Lagoon is interesting, but it’s definitely not unique because there were thousands of other people there with the same idea.

Pope Francis’s Speech

I felt special to see Pope Francis speak on Good Friday at the Colosseum in Rome, I guess that could be interesting. If only I understood Italian…

Riding a Camel in Africa

Riding a camel through Africa: interesting or touristy? Either way, it was a pretty cool experience. They even dressed us up in the local garb so we looked pretty legit!

Partying With the Game of Thrones Crew

Crashing Emilia Clarke’s birthday party and spending the night with the Game of Thrones cast, crew, and directors in Osuna, Spain was fun! That was probably one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Visiting Pinocchio’s Town

It was pretty cool to travel back in time to Germany’s well-preserved medieval towns, especially Rothenburg, the setting that Pinocchio was based off of. It really looked like a Disney town!

Visiting King’s Landing

Visiting King’s Landing (or for the non-Game of Thrones fans: Dubrovnik, Croatia) was like entering a movie! Being the nerd I am, I visited all the filming sites. Then we did typical Croatian things too. It was a pretty interesting travel experience.

Visiting the Greek Gods

Standing in front of the Parthenon, the temple of Athena, in Athens was historical and impressive. I could almost feel the presence of the Greek gods.

Visiting Smurfville

Going to Juzcar, Spain, a town painted entirely in blue for the Smurfs movie premier, was unusual and cool. The whole town was blue! People had smurfs painted on their houses.

How does one define “interesting”? It seems the word is defined by the eye of the beholder. What makes interesting different from normal? What is normal, after all? So like I said, I’m just an average girl doing average things that make me happy.
