Would you rather || Travel Theme

Wow I'm on a roll this month!  I thought I'd have to take a break from my blog, due to my crazy-busy schedule and the fact that I've had writers blog, but I've actually found a lot of things to post about!  Thanks for continuing to follow along!

When I first read this post by Camila, I immediately knew I wanted to do it on my blog.  Peter and I have been talking about our next vacation (we can't yet agree on a destination...) and we've discussed these very same questions.  For the most part, we agree with each other!

Would you rather...

Travel or focus on your career at the age of 25?
Well I'm past 25 by now... when I was 25 I was focused on my Master's degree, which I suppose was taking a step in the direction of my career.  But soon after I got my Master's, I moved overseas, so I supposed I accomplished both.  

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?
Peter and I agree - fly economy and splurge on accommodation and trip events, all the way!!!  Flights aren't too bad these days, especially if you have a tv screen built in.  Not to say that 14 hour flights are comfortable, but luxury hotels for a week are worth it!

Never take the train or never take an airplane again?
Train.  Most of the places I want to go necessitate an airplane...

Stay in a palm hut along the seashore for seven days or stay in a log cabin in the woods for one month?
Peter surprised me with his answer.  I definitely thought he would choose the log cabin.  This is something we've always disagreed on.  I love the ocean and he loves the woods.  But he actually chose the beach for this one.  His reasoning - it would get boring in the woods for a month.

Be left behind in the bush on an African safari or be left behind in the water on a scuba trip?
OMG neither.  Good grief.  But if I had to choose I would say safari.  Smaller area for them to search for me, more places to find shelter and sustenance, and drowning to death has always been my biggest phobia.  

Have an awesome job in a mediocre city or a mediocre job in an awesome city?
This is tricky.  I've actually lived out both of these scenarios.  I think I choose awesome job in a mediocre city.  Because you spend so much of your time at your job, you should at least enjoy it.  Plus if it's super duper awesome then you should get great vacation times to travel to other awesome places.

Be able to teleport to places you’ve already been or only be able to teleport to places you’ve never been before?
I have no idea.  Would I be able to choose the destination?  Would I be able to teleport back whenever I want???  Too many variables.  Can't answer.

Be stuck on a seven-hour delay, or turn up at the airport and realize your flight is tomorrow?
It depends.  Currently the airport is a 3 hour drive from my house.  So it almost wouldn't be worth it to drive home and then drive back again if I got there a day early.  So there's the added expense of all that driving or having to stay in a hotel.  And I do really like airports, although delays are somewhat anxiety-inducing.  Hmm.  I guess it would depend on how close I live to the airport.  

Be able to play every musical instrument that you touch or speak every language that you hear?
You would think that, being a musician, I would pick the first option.  But the fact is, because I am a musician it's very easy for me to learn new instruments.  I can pick up an instrument and make music with it, even if I've never played it before.  So I think I would choose the latter.  I've always been fascinated with languages and would love to be able to speak them without having to learn them first!

Travel along the ocean floor or take a trip to outer space?
I've recently developed claustrophobia, so I don't really like either of these options...  If I had to choose though I would go with the ocean.  Outer space kinda freaks me out.

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

Have in-flight WiFi but no legroom (like, zero inches) or in-flight legroom but no WiFi?
I would rather have legroom.  I mostly try to sleep on flights anyway, so I don't think I'd use the WiFi very much.

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?
Food.  Always food.

Wow, those were thought provoking.  I'd love to read your answers!  Answer in the comments or leave a link to your "Would you rather" blog post.
