Our interview with Terri Fogarty from europeupclose.com:

Why did you start travelling?

I started traveling as a child. My father’s family lived on the East coast and we lived in the Midwest. My family traveled around the eastern part of the US several times. It was not until I was an adult that my husband and I took our first trip to Mexico. We began traveling in earnest once our children were out of college.  Because we were grandchildren of European immigrants, we focused on travel in Europe and have not looked back!

What’s the most important during your travels?

For me, the most important thing when traveling is having a chance to interact with the people. I think that is why we enjoy going to weekly farmer’s markets and flea markets.

What’s the most important experience that you had during your travels?

I think that making friends with a French couple was very important. We have visited them several times while in France and they have traveled to the USA. We communicate via email a few times a year.

What’s the most beautiful place that you have been to?

The most beautiful place that I have traveled to is France. It is a geographically diverse country that never disappoints me. I love the mountains, the gorges and the beautiful coastlines. And, I think Paris is the most beautiful city in the world.

What do you avoid when you travel?

I avoid spending time in any of the theme parks scattered across Europe. I come for the people, the culture, the scenery and the fabulous food..

What’s your biggest dream?

My biggest travel dream is to spend a year living in Europe, be it France, Spain, Germany or wherever. If I were there for a year, I could travel to every country by train.

What blogs do you read?

I read several blogs, mostly Europe-centered. Euro Cheapo www.eurocheapo.com by Tom  Myers is always interesting. And I really enjoy Eurotravelogue www.eurotravelogue.com
