Due to the popularity of Question Roulette the past few years, I thought it was time to jump to another book with lots of questions. This time the book is called Music Madness Mayhem – the book covers everything from film, television, music, and much more! So every week we will be covering questions from the book until we run out! I am not going to number them this time as I am going to be doing the book in a random order!
Topic of the week – Top 10 Places
I love writing about travel and places I have visited to, however this weeks Media Madness really made me think – there are so many places I have adored visiting but when it comes down to it, I really wanted to think of places that I love so much and would love to keep going back to or places that had an impact on me.
“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” – is a famous quote by Samuel Johnson and it is a quote that I strongly believe in. I have lived in London since I was born and no matter how many times you walk around the city there is always something new to discover. Did you know there is a road called Disney Street, a grave stone for a german dog from the war near Pall Mall, loads of ears in Soho? These are just some discoveries and I always love finding new things. There is such a rich history in London and there is always something new to discover.
2) New York City
In 2010 I lived in New York City for a few months and even in that time I felt I didn’t even get to touch the surface as to what there is to do in New York City. It is such a huge place and I would love to live there again to really experience everything on offer. I still don’t think that would be enough time.
I went to Chicago for the first time in 2011 and fell in love with it, I like the fact its like a mix of New York and London and would love to spend so much more time there to experience it. I loved it before I even knew about its Improv history and would enjoy going to see it for that too. I loved how they really incorporated interactivity into their architecture.
I visited Copenhagen for the first time a month before lockdown happened in the UK and I fell in love with it. It is a city that I can honestly imagine living in as it really is wonderful. It is so modern and clean and just wonderful. If you get a chance visit this city, it is so ahead of its time.
I went to West France for holiday a few years ago and we booked this area without not really knowing much about it and I ended up loving the area. The village is so quaint and the town has lots of cartoons drawn around the town as it has a rich history of comics and animations. Really worth a visit a lovely little place.
I love Switzerland and there are so many places I could of added to the list, when I first visited Geneva it was a quick visit as we travelled 2000 miles around the country via train so it was only for a day. However we went back for a long weekend and we were able to truly experience the city and I fell in love with it. There is so much to love about Geneva – the new town, the old town the jet, the water – the list goes on and on. If you get a chance to visit I really recommend it.
I have been to a lot of different cities in Spain and Cordoba is one of the towns that really stand out. The area has a lot of Arabic influence and it is really pretty and very interesting place. I went to some beautiful buildings, a fantastic garden and a zoo in Cordoba. The architecture is unique an wonderful.
When I went to Slovenia my friend who is from there gave me a great 48 hour tour of the country. Celje is one of the cities that she took me to and i really loved it. The castle has phenomenal views and the restaurant provided me with one of the best meals I have ever had. The fish was amazing. Really recommend this hidden treasure of a place.
I love Norway and one of the most beautiful places I have visited is Geiranger on a cruise. The area is in the centre of a fjord and the journey into the place is breathtaking. The area comes to life when you walk up the high hills and look at the views from above – breathtaking.
I went to Bordeaux a few years ago and really liked it – I first took an interest in the city when I saw Rick Stein go there for his show about weekends abroad in Europe and really liked how it looked and the culture of the place. It was lovely to see it in reality it is a beautiful city that I look forward to seeing again in the future. It also has a lot of great food and wine too which also is lets be honest a great reason to return.
