Recently I found this little blog idea on another travel bloggers website. I tweeted it out thinking out loud if it was a nice idea for me to do it as well? She replied with a ‘yes, go for it!’ So here I am!
So here I am, sitting. Thinking about the things that you don’t know about me and are interesting enough to put in a list on my blog. I bet you didn’t know I ate grapes this morning, but that’s not that interesting. Is it?
After a few days of brainstorming, I finally found these four things I would love to discuss and share. So let’s get right to it!
1. I love stand-up comedy
It’s probably one of my favorite things. I am more inclined to put on a comedy show than watch a movie on Netflix. I don’t mean the ‘Meet the Parents’ kind of comedy. The standup comedy, with people on stage talking about things in life with funny twists.
I can enjoy it so much. I often even rewatch shows. I also love watching clips with one of my friends, Fons, who sends me from British television. The shows bringing a couple of comedians together and discussing various topics. It’s one of those downwards spirals on YouTube for me.
2. I prefer walking over public transport when traveling
Whenever I find myself in a new city, I tend to avoid public transportation. Fine, there is this saying that says ‘you will get to know a city by its public transport,’ but I disagree. I usually tend to walk almost everything.
Sometimes that means I do a lot of kilometers just strolling around a city. All by foot. It is what I loved to do most. Walking through the streets, the average tourist won’t go through. Looking at the houses, witnessing how people live there, and observing the day-to-day person on the destination.
3. I used to be really shy
Back when I was in school. Not that I am a loud-mouthed extravert person now. I still am with times. Back then, I didn’t really feel the need to start a conversation with people I didn’t know.
Now I do, and I also enjoy doing it. It sometimes still takes some effort to start a conversation with someone at a party or in a hostel room. But compare me with who I was 5 years ago, and I am a changed man!
4. I have a hard time reading analog clocks
My mother keeps bullying me with this. Well, it’s less now, but she did for a while. It’s not that I can’t read it at all. I have a hard time getting it all in order. I stare at the clock for ten seconds, trying to figure out what hour it is and how much before or after that specific hour we are.
Usually, I grab my phone and look at the hour there. It’s much faster and more logical to me.
I read this blog tag on The Travel Hack first. So go and read her blog too!
