I was so delighted when I got an e-mail from lovely Cass from Cass Travels asking me whether I’d be happy to receive a nomination for a Liebster Award. Of course, I said yes! So, what is a Liebster Award? Well, it’s an award given by bloggers to bloggers in a recognition of their blog. It’s usually given to new(ish) blogs and it’s a great way to get to know new blogs &their bloggers. Once you receive it you need to answer 11 questions posed by the person who nominated you and then you need to nominate other 11 bloggers and come up with 11 new questions for them.
So, here are my answers to Cass’s questions:
- If time and money weren’t a consideration, where would you go?
New York City with my BFF 🙂 After that a trip to Australia and New Zealand with my hubby, then … well, there are MANY far away places that I’d like to visit so I guess I need to win some serious money on the lottery! 🙂
- What’s your best ‘you’ll never believe what happened…’ travel story?
I think I’ve got a few 🙂 Would you believe that I travelled to Turkey by train? It only took us 36 hours to get to Istanbul. Or when I travelled to Greece by boat? It was only 30 h journey on the boat (but we also needed a bus and a train to get to Venice first and then again the train to get from Patras to Athens). I saw the Queen in Scotland too :).
- What do you have planned for 2016?
Travel: London. It’s been too long since I’ve visited it last so that’s definitely in the cards. And I’ve already booked the flights and the hotel for our Stockholm weekend trip!:) For other destinations check out my post.
Blog related: More presence on social media. I’ve only got my blog’s Facebook page and I’m on Bloglovin’ too. I’d like to open a Twitter account and perhaps also Instagram but I honestly don’t think that I have the time & energy to do that much. I’d rather focus on writing new posts &reading other blogs.
Life related: This one’s hard. 2016 didn’t start well but I hope that things could only get better now.
- What would you choose for your last meal?
A cake! 🙂 Any kind would do really! Or a bar of chocolate 🙂
- When you’re not blogging, what are you up to?
All the usual stuff: spending time with my husband, working, cooking, playing with my cat, occasionally playing badminton, meeting my friends, reading and of course travelling!
- If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Be invisible or fly?:) What I’d really like is to keep my family healthy and safe. Is there such a super power?
- What’s your spirit animal?
I have no idea. So, I took this quiz (http://www.spiritanimal.info/your-spirit-animal ) and it turns out I’m a butterfly (what a coincidence , I recently posted about Butterfly House in Vienna). However, my husband believes that I was a cat in my previous life because apparently I’ve got a lot in common with our cat. 🙂
- What was the last thing you cooked?
Beef soup! Home-made soups are the best, right?
- Where are you now?
@ home. And where’s that? Well, that’s in Croatia 🙂
- What is your favourite place in the world?
London. England. 🙂
- Beach, city or mountains?
Well, I live in a seaside town and there are a lot of nice beaches nearby. I love sea and spending time at the beach. But as I grew older I began to appreciate the mountains too. However, I feel best in a city so I guess I’d choose city.
So, that was all about me. Now, I’ve got the privilege to nominate another group of great blogs and here they are:
I nominate these 11 blogs:
