Sharing My World – Living, Music, and Language

These are this week’s questions from the Share Your World Challenge by Cee:

How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

10 residences. 6 cities (well, one wasn’t a city). 4 countries. 

Mexico City. 1 house and 1 apartment. (19 years)

London. 1 flat. (1 year).

South Carolina. 1 condo and 1 house. (1 year +)

North Carolina. 2 apartments and 1 house. (3 years)

India. 1 house. (4 months)

Portland, Oregon. 1 house. (7 months and counting)

Check out my post of beds I’ve slept on around the world.

What type of music relaxes you the most?

Ballet Rehearsal, 1873 by Edgar Degas source

Classical. I love classical music. I think my love for it comes from my love for ballet. I started ballet when I was 5 years old, and it has always been one of my passions even though I didn’t pursue it strongly. Mozart and Tchaikovsky being amongst my favorite.

I really like Enya too.

If you could instantly become fluent in another language, what would that language be and why?

Hindi. I already know fluent English and Spanish, and I don’t have an interest for learning Chinese, so Hindi is another one of the most spoken languages in the world and one that I have familiarity with but don’t speak. I did start learning last summer but failed to continue after a few months :s

If you could fly or breathe under water what would you prefer?

The first time I read this question I thought it meant: “if you could fly (under water) or breathe under water…”

“Fly under water?” I thought. I guess that’s swimming, and then I figured the question didn’t mean fly under water, it meant just fly.

I pick fly. Definitely. I would love to be able to fly. I love traveling and I am starting to get tired of flying by plane already. I’d love to soar above Portofino, Alaska, The Great Barrier Reef, and Patagonia. *sigh*

  1. Liked your link to many of the places you’ve slept–I can’t imagine the Camry being very comfortable! I found your blog tagline amusing, how you both traveled so far to end up together. 🙂


  2. Thanks so much for sharing. You’ve really lived a lot of places and now we are both in Oregon.


  3. Hindi is a language I’d like to learn to speak too, and also learn to write. The writing is fascinating and I’d love to be able to read it.
