SEE THE WORLD WITH

This guy and I don’t agree on a lot of things. Our taste in music, for instance, is different. He likes his techno/electro/house music (I don’t even know what it’s really called.) while I raise the roof when they play pop and hip hop at the party scene.

If there’s one thing we both like though, it’s to travel. We both have been to at least 20 countries separately. We both want to see at least 50 in our lifetime. We both wouldn’t pass on a good travel opportunity.

Take the 10-hour train just to see Amsterdam from Prague? Go! Drive to somewhere we haven’t been to and just trust the car’s Tomtom to lead the way? Check!

THE SWEETEST THING

What I find the sweetest is he keeps a checklist of places that he wants to take me to. I don’t think he knows that I know! Hahahaha! I just saw him on my peripheral vision fiddling with his phone one time. He was typing on a notepad page that had my name and a list of places. I also know that he has several places listed on his iPhone for “weather updates”. We go when there’s no forecast of rain or worse, snow.

So one fine day, he decided to take me to the smallest yet richest German-speaking country in Europe: LIECHTENSTEIN.

Liechtenstein also has the lowest unemployment rate at 1.5% in the entire world. It’s the only country that lies within the alps.

That day, we went to Vaduz, the capital of a country with only about 5,000 inhabitants and is ruled by a Prince under a constitutional monarchy.

In just a few hours, we were able to climb up the mountain to the castle. We went inside the museums. Drew some funny postcards. Shot a travel video. Ate at a German restaurant. And talked about life in general.

One country off the list! A few more to go for #denswithmike! 🙂
