Sharing My World – Travel, Life and Spices

Here are this week’s questions over at Cee’s Share Your World Challenge:

What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?

Several things actually: Pen, ibuprofen, chapstick, kleenex, chewing gum and camera. I think the reasons are pretty obvious. 

What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?

I would love to learn gardening. I had never had the chance because I’ve either mostly lived in apartments in big cities, or I’m always on the move, but I just love plants and flowers and I would love to learn to plant and grow them, and vegetables and herbs too. I feel like it would be the perfect activity for my personality and it would give me a lot of peace.

Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

Prooobably the latter. I prefer a no drama, happy, life. My life is not like that however, at least it hasn’t been since 2008, full of ups and downs, adventures and unpredictability, but paradoxically, I have no regrets and wouldn’t change my life, so.. who knows.

What are your favorite spices?

I love cooking and spices. I use quite a bit of them. Some of my favorite would be oregano, cumin, and ginger. The first two are probably because of my Mexican roots. I sprinkle dry oregano on fried eggs and grilled cheese sandwiches and it makes them so much better. I also love cayenne on sweet potato fries, red pepper flakes on pizza, garlic powder on buttered toast, and sea salt on any chocolate dessert.

What are your favorite spices?
