1. Do you like traveling or are you counting the minutes until the transporter is perfected? Definitely want a transporter (or for fellow B7ers, teleport) of my very very own. Oh, occasionally the trip can be good in itself (one of these days we are too going to go on a cruise down the Rhine...) but for the most part no. Doesn't help that I canNOT sleep on an international flight (dunno why, I just never manage it) and live where getting to most of the world involves... yep, not fun at all.

And I have a sense of direction that out-no-sense's James May's.

2. If you could visit any country in the world right now, where would you go? Sis and I have this plan for our next trip to go to Wales and all the places swe've found on Mum's side of the family history. Mind you most of 'em look like small coal towns so won't be that exciting... but we still wanna do it (and make a side trip to Portmeirion because hey, who wouldn't?

3. What is your favorite form of travel? Umm, armchair? Failing that, domestic flight is fast :)

4. What is the longest vacation/holiday that you’ve ever been on? The first trip Sis and I made to Europe in - I think - the mid 1990s. Seven weeks, eight countries and (because there wasn't a euro, or it wasn't common then) just as many currencies. And online banking/ATMs weren't a thing then (ahh, the joy of travellers' checks and money changing), nor were internet cafes. But it was worth it for the churches, cathedrals, cemeteries, museums... food :)

5. Would you travel for a living? No. Being a travel writer/presenter sounds wonderful until you remember that you have to do places you probably wouldn't if you had a choice, and doing a job that wasn't travel per se, but involved a life in airports -? Please.

I like to travel. Unfortunately, accessibility makes that difficult for people with disabilities. Modes of transportation that have stairs make it difficult. Nothing makes getting around more challenging than attempting to get around when there’s steps.
If I could visit any country in the world, I think I’d take a Bizarre Foods trek through all the places that I have seen on the show on Travel channel with my incredible boyfriend. I think it would be amazing to take my boyfriend with me along for the adventure. We really enjoy having adventures.
I enjoy going for walks with my boyfriend when the weather’s nice. Then again, I enjoy visiting new places—especially places I haven’t been to in over a decade. I mean it’s been almost twenty years since my first-ever visit to Six Flags Great America. Tomorrow, I get to go back there for the day.
The longest vacation holiday that I’ve been on was for about ten days last year. I went to visit my parents at their “new old” house in Walworth, Wisconsin. That was ten long days of being away from Sean. ☹ Unfortunately, that was the longest vacation time away from him, and I missed him so much.
I don’t work because of my disability. Therefore, the travelling that I did was for vacation. Tomorrow’s trip is for recreation. Nevertheless, I’m wondering if the plans are going to get turned upside down if there’s threatening bad weather. Later next month follows another field trip to a Chicago White Sox game.

Disabilities makes everything that much harder. I am disabled as well and there are some daily challenges that I would prefer to not have to deal with.

Good luck with your trip to Six Flags. I hope it happens for you!
