Liebster Award. What an honour!


I have been nominated  for the Liebster Award for my blog. Amazing. I’m very honoured.

Thank you to the fellow blogger who nominated me.  Two Travelin’ Chicas…..A Grand Adventure. Check out this fun blog

The Liebster Award 2017 is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011.

Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. I hope that reflects my blog!

I accept this award with great pleasure. Hopefully it will help grow my readership. So please mention my blog to friends.

The questions for acceptance of this award.  And my answers


Why do you blog? I blog because I like to write. I like to record my travels stories to be able to share them with friends . I originally started back in 2010 when I started to teach blogging at the school I was working in. I decided to start writing about my travel. I’d always kept a diary so this was a new,  more accessible form. Over the years friends started to ask if they could read my blog and it started to grow.

2. What’s been the scariest thing in your travels?   Fortunately there haven’t been too many scary things! Probably travelling on my own was a little scary. It really challenges you to open your eyes and your mind.

3. As a blogger, do you feel a sense of responsibility for blogging “how it is” ?  Yes, if people are reading my blog to get hints and suggestions about places and experiences then I have to tell it as it is. I’m not sponsored by anyone so I need to tell describe things accurately even though it is just my experience.

4. What was your favourite blog?  There are so many great blogs out there on every imaginable topic. For general I like Nikki Parkinson’s ‘Styling You’ – it’s very professional and sponsored. For travel I like Nomadic Matt. But really there are heaps of wonderful blogs. Just get online and Google.

5. If you had to describe yourself as an animal what would it be and why?  I had to think hard about this question! After my recent trip to Galapagos swimming with  all types of animals I think I’d choose a sea lion. They are sleek, fun, fast in the water. They like to play and be around people, they rest by  basking on rocks in the sun and swim and swim and swim. That’s me pretty much!

I will reveal my nomination for this award in the next blog. Keep reading……….
