‘Would you rather’ travel questions – About friends and survival

I love overthinking the things people say, or ‘Would You Rather” questions. My friends know that I can keep going on one sentence. Endless jokes and theories about what’s wrong or correct with something they said. Usually, it’s complete nonsense, what makes it even more fun.

I call it improv-comedy. They call it: “Fred is at it again!”. Anyhow, here are three ‘Would you rather’ questions about friends and survival. Don’t forget to answer them in the comments!

Would you rather… be left behind in…

Be left behind in the bush on an African safari or be left behind in the water on a scuba trip?

I think I prefer the bush in Africa. Yes, there is more wildlife that is potentially dangerous. And let’s not even talk about the issue of dehydration and poisonous plants I might eat. I prefer this one because it’s still possible to rest by sitting or laying down for a minute. I won’t die from exhaustion, which is always a plus.

On top of that, it’s dangerous to stay in the salt water for a long period. Maybe I shouldn’t take this question as serious as I’m doing. I’m thinking of several days in the situation, not just a few hours.

Would you rather… go on an…

Go on an all expenses paid trip to a small town in the Netherlands with your best friends or an all expenses paid trip to your dream destination with your frenemy?

I’d go for the trip with a friend. Yes, I would miss out on a beautiful trip through Svalbard or Mongolia. Which are my dream destinations. But unlike a lot of Instagrammers and bloggers try to sell you, it’s not about the destination.

In fact, I’ve already did trips to the Netherlands with friends. Like the one with my mate Fons and our bikes. So, if it’s not about the destination, then what is traveling about? Well, it’s all about the memories. So if you go 10 miles or 10.000 miles, if you are not making good memories, it’s not worth it. I’m also talking good memories, not “epic” or “awesome” ones. Have fun, but don’t do it just for the sake of doing it or being able to tell you did it.

Would you rather… be unable to…

Would you rather...

Be unable to post your vacation pictures to Instagram or come home with a tan?

Jokes on you with this question. I can’t get a tan anyway, so it’s an easy question to answer. And before you tell me I’m not trying. I strolled around Namibia for two weeks in the summer without and all I got was 50 shades of red. I also did several trips to the Canary Islands to do a sun and beach vacation. None of them gave me a tan.

I like to look at it in a positive way, at least now I actually shine bright like a diamond.
