I was nominated for the Outstanding Blogger Award by Pedro from World Wide PedroL in February. Thank you Pedro for your kind nomination. My dear readers, make sure to check Pedro’s blog because he has a lot of very interesting travel stories from all around the world.
Without further ado, here are my answers to Pedro’s questions:
What would you say about yourself that can be surprising? I have a driver’s license but I don’t drive. I did drive for a short while but I was very insecure so I just stopped.
Where do you live and what are your 3 favorite things about this place? I live in Rijeka, Croatia. My favourite 3 things about my hometown: its geographical position, its history and its spirit. Let me explain a bit more. My hometown is by the sea but there are also mountains and forests nearby. Moreover, I can take day trips to both Slovenia and Italy. My hometown has a very interesting and turbulent history too. And I like the free spirit of my town.
If it wasn’t the pandemic and you could be abroad, where would you be at this moment and why? To be honest I’d still be at home because I’ve only recently started a new job so I can’t have any vacation days just yet. But the first destination I’d really love to travel to is Germany. I’d like to see where my best friend lives now. And then I’d go to London, hopefully with her 🙂
Either on blogging or arts or maths, what are your biggest inspirations and how do they inspire you? I will share with you my blogging inspirations. Emma is one of my earliest blogging inspirations for sure. I also quite like A lady in London’s posts. Their posts gave me some of the ideas for the sightseeing on my last London trip.
What are your tips to have a successful blog? Well, I actually wrote a blog post about tips for first-time bloggers. Whether you’ll have a successful blog or not if you follow them….. I don’t know. Maybe 🙂
What are you goals for this year and how do you imagine yourself in a decade? Goals for this year…well, I got a new job so that’s a pretty big achievement. It’d be lovely to visit my best friend. And that’s it really. I don’t have any other goals for this year. 2021 is much better than 2020 but we are all still crippled by this worldwide pandemic. I have absolutely no idea about how my life should look like in a decade. My kids are going to be older and that’s it.
If you had the chance, what would you ask about me? (and I promise to answer in a future post! ahah) Hey Pedro, how are you? Ok, my real question is this: If you could visit Croatia again, where would you go?
