Meeting up with this crazy and funny girl Lola was a destiny I believe! I went to visit Boston when I was in the US and just broke up with my boyfriend so spending time with Lola there was my Independence Day from my ex boyfriend. We got along so well that then we spent some time in Cape Cod too. Until the end of this year we will reunite again, first in Spain in September and later in some more places. 🙂 I just love this girl!
Find out more about my lovely friend Lola via her answers:
1. Who are you? Tell us something about you.
I’m Lauren DiMarco but my travel persona is Lola. The name of my travel blog is Lola’s Travels – where in the world is lola? I’m a gal from the United States – Texas to be specific, but I’m a wanderer at heart and love traveling the world. With my blog, Lola’s Travels, I relay “fun tips for quick trips” in a playful yet informative way. My stories are about what I see, do and learn to encourage people to travel even if only for a short trip and what to do to get the most out of your time away.
2. What is your favorite place, city and country and why? (All three of them)
My favorite place I’ve found so far is St. Barts, a beautiful French island in the Caribbean. I love St. Barts because I’m an island girl, love the sun and especially love the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean sea.
3. If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be and why?
I should probably say a far-flung destination that I’ve never been to but, if I’m being honest, it would be St. Barts. It is my happy place. If I had to pick where I would spend the rest of my life at this very moment, it would be here.
4. What do you love the most about your home country?
I love that I have the freedom to BE and DO anything!
5. How travel changes you?
Traveling makes me realize more clearly how similar we all are in our basic needs in the world. It blurs borders & religions for me. It has made me feel more like a citizen of humankind. I love seeing and doing new things but my passion is with people. We all have something special to offer and my wish would be to meet as many lovely people around the world as possible.
It’s always so much fun to meet up with fellow travel friends! This article is having me crave a getaway on St. Barts!;-)
i loved our time together in Massachusetts and welcome any other travels we will have down the road. i feel like our friendship was destiny, too! thanks for this great interview!
see you soon 🙂 XO – lola
It will be many more trips together in the future, Lola … remember? It is our destiny sweetie 🙂 Just 5 weeks and we will meet up again 🙂
