1. Your most treasured passport stamp? I only have stamps from Tallinn. When I first got my passport almost 10 years ago (eee!), I tried to ask for stamps whilst travelling but it's pretty much impossible these days! Or maybe you can get them once you travel out of Europe, which I haven't done?

2. Can you recite your passport number from memory if asked? No? Is that even a thing, I mean can anyone?
3. Preferred method of travel: Plane, train, or automobile? I love all of them. Though, travelling in an automobile can get annoying depending on the company (possibly even without depending on the company) and even though I love flying I usually get a migraine while waiting at the airport, so I'll choose train. Especially if there's a sleeping car, I sleep so well on trains!
4. Top three travel items? I honestly don't think I have things that I always have with me, depends on where I'm going and why. But I suppose, passport, food and a book (or 5).
5. Hostel or hotel? I'd say I prefer hotels in a way, but rarely go because price-wise I prefer hostels.
6. Are you a repeat visitor, or do you prefer to explore new places? Exploring all the new places! Though there's always places you want to revisit, too.
7. Do you read up on your destination, or do you wing it? I usually do read a lot about the place I'm going to, but only for fun and not to make definite plans. So if I find something I'd absolutely love to see, I'll know it beforehand instead of finding out about it once I'm back home. But because I don't have an hour-to-hour itinerary, I can end up doing whatever.

8. Favorite travel website? I don't have one. Well, kind of this one.
9. Where would you recommend a friend to visit, and why? Usually when people ask what Finland's like I just say "it's orite". But I suppose I would actually recommend visiting my lil' homeboy, especially Lapland. After all, it is almost an exotic place for most people, and there is a lot of things you don't see elsewhere. And if one likes snow, there's a lot of it in the winter.
10. You're leaving tomorrow and money is no option; where are you going? Going back to #8, I'd go on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express from Paris to Istanbul. You have no idea how exited I am about this, even when I know it most likely will never happen. It'd be ~£6000 per person for 6 days. And it'd be so worth it. You get to see all of the places, you travel in the most beautiful old-fashioned train, you get all of the food, most people dress in 20's fashion or in their Sunday best anyway, and you get to fulfill all of your Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot obsessions. I mean, if you wanted to, you could have a murder mystery situation going on on the train. It's just all I've ever wanted in life.
