What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching?
Such a timely question for my Malaysia trip next week with Micah, my church friend :) My go-to items whenever I travel are the following:
- Food – I love discovering new food or “authentic versions” of food whenever I go out of the country. Case in point: THAILAND AND VIETNAM. Ugh. Made me fall in love with sticky rice w/ mangoes and pho.
- Sights – I’m not really a “tourist” type but I do like seeing new things as I tend to get bored with the standard view I get when I go to the office and travel back home.
- Culture – I always make sure to do the “weird” stuff whenever I travel. Sure, I do the standard tourist stuff (as they are standard for a reason), but I also do random things like watch a movie when in Berlin — whuuuut.
- Rest – The only time I would want to take a vacation is when I am tired. So rest, please. Lots of it.
