Do you ever get a kind of insight when you meet someone for the very first time? You say to yourself, this person is going places? Is it charisma? Well we feel this way about our 7 Questions featured couple this week. They are really destined for some great adventures! So… meet: Bryan and Laura.
Blog: Here, There and Elsewhere
Twitter: The DeLuca’s (follow them as they have hit the “2000 barrier”)
1) How many countries visited between the two of you?
Team DeLuca has been to 22 countries collectively…Bryan having visited 12 and Laura ten. Not too shabby for a pair of (strong to quite strongly attractive) amateurs.
2) If you had to travel with someone else besides your travel partner, who would it be? (this person can be living, historical or mythical?.)
He Said: Morgan Freeman, so he could narrate my entire journey.
She Said: I would travel with one of my best friends, Katie. She and I met six years ago at an alumnae gathering where I proceeded to unknowingly make fun of one of her high school acquaintances, and we’ve been friends ever since. She and I have similar interests – could sight-see one day, then watch a Real Housewives marathon the next while ordering room service in our PJs – and get into quite a bit of trouble when we are together.
3)What has been your favorite destination in your wanderings?
He said: Switzerland because it’s so tranquil and picturesque. And the sheep are cute, too.
She said: I feel like such a typical girl when I say this, but definitely Paris. The sights, the smells, the random men in their underwear splashing around in fountains. It’s just delightful.
4) If you had to eat one last meal, what/ where would you eat?
He said: This is a tough one, but I’d have to pick steak and lobster at a really nice steakhouse. You know, man food.
She said: Hands down, I would have a Tex-Mex feast. A little queso here, some sour cream chicken enchiladas there, and a nice margarita to wash it all down.
5)How do you pick the places you visit? Spontaneous vs. planned?
He said: A little bit of both. I like knowing what I’m doing but I like getting lost, too.
She said: I spontaneously let Bryan plan most things.
6) If you could solve one problem in the world what would it be?
He said: Cancer, that bastard.
She said: Human trafficking, those bastards.
7)You knew it was coming….What has been your greatest travel fight/disagreement?
She said: Well, I was working until the 11th hour prior to a weekend jaunt to New Orleans. Apparently I was the cause of us not only almost missing our flight, but also our bags having to travel on a later one. Then I got food poisoning and my husband went to a vampire party without me. I’d say that was quite the travel adventure and fight. Oops!
He said: Fighting about the fight Laura just mentioned.
1000Fights: Wow! This couple has spunk! Ok, lets get the obvious out of the way. We know that they are likely the odds on fav for our Hot Blogger Contest. Luci says that they are going to make beautiful babies…I am not really sure what that means. Anyway. H T & E are headed on a whirlwhind trip and we wish them the very best in their travels and adventure together. As a parting shot, we want to share one of their recent tweets:
