I’m usually interested in new places to eat.
Oh yes, local cuisine is a great way to “taste” that culture :))
Historical places ❤️
What’s the most interesting place you’ve visited so far?
Ajanta and Ellora caves 😊
Never been there, but I’ll note them on my wish list 😀 Thank you!
Most welcome dear 😊
And you must visit there once … 😊 its an awesome place
Ok, I’ll move them to my must list 😀
Nature and surroundings attract me.
Such a thought-provoking question! New places we visit are usually known for their places of interest…so first on my list would be the most spectacular place, for which the place is famous – if it is Natural surroundings, my choice would be the best lake, the sunset, a stroll around the peaks. if it is a building, I would visit it and click a lot of pictures like The Taj Mahal in India, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Eiffel Tower in Paris…food and photography would be my second choice and a comfortable bed the last. 🙂
Trying the mainstream! Great approach! 😀
Architectural buildings.. it tells of the past and history and of course FOODS 😉
Food tells history too 😀
We usually stay in places that have kitchenettes, so our first foray is to the nearest market/grocery for foodstuffs. Then we just wander around. Yes, we’ll have a list of ‘attractions’ and sometimes we do get to them all but mostly we meander around town, poking into whatever looks different or interesting. We don’t go to resorts, or nature/camping sorts of places – we are city people – concrete and carbon monoxide to the core!
I’ve noticed that wandering around can bring to surprisingly interesting discovers!
It depends on where I’m going. I find travel to be utterly draining, so my first concern is usually where I’m sleeping! From there – I like wandering. Yes, it’s nifty to go to some of the famous or well known attractions – but I really like to see what ordinary people are doing or shopping for. If I’m near a beach, I want to find the quietest and most secluded part of it, and just enjoy the waves. Doesn’t even have to be summer, I like the beach all the time!
Ordinary people can tell the true story of that place. Beaches tell you the story you already have within. 🙂
Museums! I love to learn
What’s the most interesting you found in a museum?
The people. They say so much without a word.
So true! And some of them say nothing with too much words. 🙂
The water, it’s relaxing and semi terrifying all at once traveling over bridges over bodies of water. Weird, I know but that’s me
Water can sustain life and it can also take it. We as people often think that nature can be cruel, but it’s exactly how it should be. Balanced!
That’s very true, I’ve never actually thought of it that way. Thanks for the fresh perspective
My pleasure! 😀
