Düsseldorf randoms and a bit about me

A few snaps that I shot during my short visit to Düsseldorf. The weather was great and spring mood was clearly in the air. 
I got nominated for a Liebster Award by Fabienne, another passionate travelblogger from Luxembourg. Usually I don't participate in blog awards - I may have done it once or twice in my early blogging days. In this case, I will at least answer the questions and share a bit about me. 

If you could take someone with you on your trips, who would it be?

I wish I could travel with my parents. 

Name your three favourite places you've been so far

London, LA and Hong Kong.

Your best travel memory

There are so many, I could probably write a book about all of them. 

Your worst travel memory

Getting mugged in a tunnel in Rio in 2014.

Suitcase or backpack?

Suitcase.

What was your very first travel memory?

My mum taking me to the Belgian seaside.

Sun or Snow?

Sun!!!

Apple or Samsung?

Is that a question? Apple of course.

What inspires you to travel?

Life is short and I want to have been to as many places as possible before I die. I get bored easily and I need to change scenery on a regular basis. 

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? 

I would do a rotation between Luxembourg, London, LA and Hong Kong. 

What is your next destination? 

Unless a spontaneous day trip comes up, my next destination is Brussels. 

Thanks to Fabienne for nominating me. Please feel free to share your answers to any of the questions above in the comments.

  3. You actually should write a book haha, I would totally read it! Gosh getting mugged would've been so terrifying.
    My answers wouldn't be that interesting, but I'd be opposite to you (team backpack, and I'd choose snow!)

  6. I love the new design of your blog! I'm from Argentina and it's near Brazil so I know what you're talking about, it's a shame that those things happens all the time in Rio ): but I'd love to read a book of all of your travel experiences, they sound so fun! Love the photos, as always :)

  7. These questions are really interesting. I did not know you got mugged inside a tunnel in Rio. How awful! I am glad to see you weren't traumatised by the experience though. One of my worst travel memories was almost getting mugged in JFK airport in NYC.

  35. It was great getting to know you more through these questions, girlie, and congrats on being nominated! I've heard so many great things about Hong Kong, that's definitely a place I'd like to visit. I'm sorry that you got mugged in Rio. Someone stole my purse in a JFK bathroom on a trip to Atlanta, GA here in the states, I had so many memorable things in there, so I know the feeling. Anyway, thanks again for sharing and these photos are so beautiful!

  51. It's nice to get to know a little more about you Anouk! Like you, I'm a huge travel fanatic and I'm rather obsessed with HK myself! I also got nominated for this award, but didn't answer any questions yet. I like your responses, so I may just do one of my own after all...
