I am a huge fan of the game, “Would You Rather” so when I saw these Travel Editions on two of my favorite travel blogs I knew I wanted to play a round of my own! My inspiration comes from Shane from Sea Salt Secrets and Kaelene from Unlocking Kiki.
Just a reminder that when you play you don’t get to create your own third option…you have to choose one of the two options in the question! I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below and ask your friends and family for their answers during dinner tonight!
Have a $10,000 budget for a holiday and fly first class for $5,000 and stay in mediocre accommodation OR spend $1,000 on economy and stay in luxury accommodation?
Hands down my answer would be to fly economy and stay in luxury accommodations! As much as I love flying first class (and trust me, once you’ve done it it’s not easy to go back to coach!) the flight is only a small portion of your trip. You’ll spend way more time at your hotel than on the plane so I’d rather have luxury accommodations!
Stay in a palm hut along the seashore for seven days OR stay in a log cabin in the woods for one month?
Since I am fortunate enough to live by the ocean in a beach city filled with palm trees (I can see palm trees from my bedroom!) it almost seems silly to choose to stay along the seashore. So I’d choose to stay in a log cabin and find fun adventures to have in the woods…hiking, maybe a pond or waterfall to explore.
Stay with a local family–awesome cultural experience guaranteed–but the children are noisy, your room’s walls are thin and you can hear it all OR in a nice quiet hotel that is sterile and devoid of any local culture (eg, a Holiday Inn)?
I would absolutely choose to stay with a local family! When I was in high school I went on a trip to Spain and we spent half the time touring the country and half the time living with a local family. I got so much more out of my time with the family because I felt like I truly experienced Spain. I was able to get a glimpse into what life looks like on a daily basis for Spaniards as opposed to the tourist version I saw the first part of the trip. So even though I might not get a great night of sleep staying with a family, the experience would be worth it!
Would you rather spend the night in a luxury hotel or go camping in a tent?
I absolutely love doing things outdoors…hiking, ziplining, the beach, etc…but I do not like sleeping outdoors. So I would have to pick the night in a luxury hotel! I don’t know what it is about camping in a tent but it’s just not my thing!
Would you rather move every six months (including internationally) or live in the same place your entire life?
As much work as it sounds like to move every six months, I wouldn’t want to live in the same place my entire life so I’d pick the moving option. I was born and raised in California but my time living on the East Coast was incredible. I learned so much about myself and other people by living somewhere new and different. I just hope that when I have to move every six months I get to pick where I go!
Would you rather go to Hawaii in a cruise ship or in an airplane?
If my answer didn’t impact how much time I could spend in Hawaii I would pick the cruise ship. Even though you’ll spend your days at sea and the view won’t change too much I think there is something nice about being able to take time to relax before your actual vacation begins. The days at sea would be a great chance to unwind from work and “real” life before my time in Hawaii.
I’d love to hear your answers to some of the questions in the comments below!
