Question A Day

Recommended Posts

Here he goes again... another game thought up whilst I was supposed to be working.

Each day, somebody will ask a question about anything. It can be serious, stupid, funny or damn weird (looking at you @MUFC). 

Whoever asks the question, nominates the next person at the same time.

So...

What is the first thing you're going to do when the lockdown restrictions where you live are lifted?

I nominate @Stan to ask a question tomorrow.

I would have two choices, Take the wife out for a romantic meal with flowers/candles etc... or meet up with some mates down the pub... pretty straight forward choice really, just need to decide which pub to meet in....

Wait a week so that everyone else struggles against the hordes that will make their way to bars they used to say things about like "Ewwww you go there its so dingy". Once their lack of faith in all places that Bangalore offers is restored to "Can't go there anymore" then i'll hit my favourite bars.

Probably visit my old man. Used to see him nearly every week as he doesnt really have anyone else. Its not that bad here but still not worth the risk being in close quarters with him as im still working (essential service) Weve caved a little bit as my better half and I had dinner with him at the park the other week, just keeping distance and not sharing things etc. Only a little sacrifice on the grand scheme of things but it is strange just not seeing your friends or family or being limited to skype calls or whatever the kids are using these days. The other thing ive missed alot is just the after hockey beers, bullshitting in the dressing room for a while, it was a nice escape.

See my fiance. Difficult not seeing her :( last saw her on 21st March and looks like it'll be end of April next time could even see her. 

 

See my brother, sister in law and niece. We'd look after our niece in Thursdays and see them at the weekend so that's been difficult not to do. 

Meet up with mates and definitely go for a meal out. 

Already spoken about doing an all-nighter at someone's house and getting absolutely hammered when all this is over.

See relations and friends. Hope the weather is still hot so women are in flip flops. Go for a slap up steak, go town and do some shopping. In between listen to numerous stories on the virus from people. This alone will take weeks.

A burning question?

What's that burning sensation when I pee?

Anyway...

Quarantine has been extended indefinitely, in all countries, for another month (until 16th May). However, as we're all so special on TF365, we're the only ones that have been given special permission to leave home & visit 5 landmarks around the world in this time.
Travel and accommodation has been paid for (you can stay near the landmark if you wish). None of the landmarks you choose must be in the same country. You must visit alone. If someone else mentions the same landmark before you, you are not allowed to visit that one. 

Which 5 do you choose and why?

1. Paro Taktsang in Bhutan

Fun fact: To stay in Bhutan, you have to pay a $250 tariff per night.

2. Cape Froward in Chile 

Fun fact: Cape Froward is the southern most point of mainland South America, although there are islands south of it.

3. Avenue of the Baobabs in Madagascar

Fun fact: Lots of flora and fauna are native to Madagascar and nowhere else on earth.

4. Mt Thor and Mt Asgard in Canada (they are right beside each other essentially so they count as one)

Fun fact: This is en route to the/out of the arctic circle (depending on where you start the trek)

5. Christmas Island in Australia

Fun fact: Crabs often invade the island for breeding season. So much that they built seawalls so the crabs don't get squished by cars.

One per continent (only Europe is left out). Some really nice locations these are.

1. Lobster for dinner in the Peak café overlooking Hong Kong Harbour as the evening sun goes down.
2. The taste of a Lobster Stew served by a window with an Ocean View in Cape Cod.
3. An evening in either Las Ramblas,  Lagos Center in Portugal or the Westring in Bochum deciding which Restaurant to visit.
4. Back to Seville for Tapas in Dinain or whatever it is now called- used to be Ivan's place where he met his wife and has great memories.
5. Saturday morning with the Kids at our regular Lego Club which is - due to CV - suspended at the moment and share a big bag of M and Ms.

The Roman Colosseum I mean, I forgot to add why I would love to visit all of them and why just there is so much history behind them all, how they managed to build them in their times with no equipment as we have nowadays, I have been through the Suez Canal but never saw a pyramid. 

The Grand Canyon haunts me to think there is 2 billion years of Earths history there and I would just love to go there and just walk around

I meant Acropolis and Parthenon. The Parthenon is in the Acropolis area of Athens...

Great question! I can't really think as I'm too hungry but I'd probably go to each of my favourite restaurants I've been to in foreign countries (including Steels Fish and Chips in Cleethorpes!)

Don't have a clue where I would start but for sure I would not do the usual Pyramids, Eifel Tower, Statue of Liberty type stuff, I am more for this, breathtaking scenery and places with a bit of mystery hanging around them...

My problem is there are many places I would go, just not many I know well enough to specifically place. So, I've applied 'landmark' loosely to some of these...

Walden Pond, USA - the American list for me is huge but if I could only do one it would be this. The whole Emerson / Thoreau and Transcendentalism (I think that's how you spell it!) scene fascinates me, and so I'd have to visit the same place where one of the most famous and influencial works on it ever was set, especially as right now is as close as we are ever going to get to that era again!

Milford Sound, New Zealand - A country I am desperate to go to, but one I fear gets too popular to enjoy its beauty properly and wonder. As such, no better time than now!

Moscow, Russia - One of the most interesting countries on earth, I could say equally St Petersburg or Ekaterinsburg (certainly spelt that wrong!). Been amazed by its history and secretive, isolated nature since I first did it at college, I would love to see the buildings and streets so significant to its story. Again, like Walden, during this times would only add to the atmosphere!

Northern Norway - black metal, Midnight Sun and predominantly forests, mountains and lakes (and Fjords and ice and shit). Sounds like heaven. Sign me up.

Connemara and Western Ireland, Ireland - I adore this country, particularly its history, culture and scenery. The West perhaps encapsulates this better than the rest of it, so I would love to spend time there, alone, to take it all in.

Same. I personally have little to no interest in Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Louvre and the likes. Give me natural landscapes and mysterious 'exotic' places anytime instead.
