Would You Rather? | Travel Edition

I'm a huge fan of the original (usually inappropriate) version of would you rather - so when I saw that Kaelene from Unlocking Kiki had posted a travel version, I was stoked to play along.  Shane at Sea Salt Secrets has also done many more versions if you fancy having a go.

Would you Rather?

Travel or focus on your career at the age of 25?

I wouldn't like to choose either way and I don't think there is or should be an age limit on when we should have our shit together - I'm 25 and I'm still winging it. 

 Ideally, I would like a career that allows me to travel.

Have a £10,000 budget for a holiday and fly first class for £5,000 and stay in mediocre accommodation, or spend £1,000 on economy and stay in luxury accommodation?

Assuming this budget is limited to one holiday per option; I would definitely stay in the luxury accommodation. There is no way that I could justify spending £10,000 on just one holiday and I never fly in fancy pants class so economy would feel like home.

Never take the train or never take an airplane again?

Easy. Never take the train again. I rarely use the train and I love flying - it's sooo much more convenient when planning around the world trips.
Stay in a palm hut along the seashore for seven days or stay in a log cabin in the woods for one month?

Oh maaaan this one's hard. I'm a self diagnosed living mermaid; so being by the sea would naturally be my first choice. The problem I have is that I already live by the sea and although it's not a tropical climate (by any stretch of the imagination) I still miss out on mountainous woodland climates so I think I'd go with the log cabin - I kinda feel like getting my lumberjack on.

My only condition would be that the log cabin belonged to Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation.

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

Both sound pretty terrible but I'd rather be left on an African safari. I'm a strong swimmer but I think I'd have more chance of being found on land.

I've watched enough David Attenborough/The Wild Thornberry's to hold my own in the wild...

Have an awesome job in a mediocre city or a mediocre job in an awesome city?

I've attempted to answer this question about five times and each time I've had to leave it and come back to it. Choosing between an awesome job or an awesome city for the rest of your life is ruddy hard.

Honestly, I think I'd have to choose an awesome job. Life is what you make it and I'm sure I could find some nice things to do in a 'mediocre city' and the beauty of travel means that I could escape my mediocre city whenever I wanted. BOOM.

Be able to teleport to places you’ve already been or only be able to teleport to places you’ve never been before?

Firstly, how rad would life be if teleportation existed? I'd without doubt only be able to travel to new places because I'm an explorer and I need to see the world god dammit.

Be stuck on a seven-hour delay, or turn up at the airport and realise your flight is tomorrow?

Both options succcck but I'd definitely prefer to turn up on the wrong day - at least I could go home if the flight was wrong. Sitting in an airport for 7 hours sounds like my idea of hell.

PLUS I'd end up spending all my money in duty free on Gin.

Be able to play every musical instrument that you touch or speak every language that you hear?

Being able to speak every single language would be so cool - can you imagine the opportunities that you would have and the friendships that you could make?

Would you rather travel along the ocean floor or take a trip to outer space?

OUTER SPACE ALWAYS. The concept of space travel scares the living crap out of me but having the opportunity to do it would be unmissable. Travelling along the ocean floor sounds mental. 

Travel back in time to meet your ancestors or forward to meet your descendants?

History has always fascinated me; my family tree is quite hard to establish as my Grandmother was adopted and we have no knowledge of her biological parents. I would love to delve into my personal history so I'd travel back in time to meet my ancestors.

Have in-flight WiFi but no legroom (like, zero inches) or in-flight legroom but no WiFi?
I've never had the luxury of in-flight WiFi so I'll take a shed load of legroom please.

Be able to eat anything and any quantity of food with no negative health effects or be refreshed and well rested after only three hours of sleep?

Being able to eat anything without gaining weight would be fucking awesome. This would be an example of my average day:

- Breakfast: Pizza (with a side order of Full English Breakfast)
- Snack Chocolate and Milkshake
- Lunch: Pizza (with a side order of Subway)
- Snack: Pick 'n' Mix and Cookies
- Tea: Pizza & all the chicken available at KFC
- Late night snack: Golden Nuggets Cereal (I do this anyway, why break a tradition?)

Oh god. Why isn't this life. OPTION ONE PLEASE.

Die happy in five years or die unhappy in sixty years?

What even is life without happiness? I'm not afraid of dying; it's a fact of life and happiness is ultimately the most important thing to me. I'd rather live five happy years than sixty unhappy ones. 

Now it's your turn! Which would you rather...
