Monthly Blog Overview: September 2016

Sky garden, London
I recently wrote about my visit to Sky Garden, London

September. Back to school, back to work kind of a month. It has always meant new beginnings to me. Alas, it didn’t deliver on its promise this time:( I had planned to write more but I got sidetracked by other important things e.g.life. However, I started the month with a bang: I co-hosted the monthly Travel linkup with the theme: your most meaningful/interesting food experience. I wrote about my favourite desserts around Europe. I really enjoyed reading about other bloggers’ food experiences on their travels. I particularly liked these posts: Eating pigeon in Egypt5 must try foods in Croatia and Snacking around the World.

I’d like to thank the hosts of the travel linkup for their invite one more time: Angie from SilverSpoon London, Emma from Adventures of a London Kiwi and Jessi from Two feet, One World blog.

I started a new blog series Discover Croatia and in the first installment I wrote about beautiful island Rab. I’ll try to write at least once a month about Croatia 🙂

So, in case you missed them:

I was nominated recently for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Sarah from Kiwi on the loose blog! Thank you Sarah! She is equally crazy about London like me and she’s preparing currently for her big England trip next year. Head to her blog and read all about it!

This is my second sunshine blogger award 🙂 I’m happy that other bloggers find my little travel blog interesting.

Thank the person that nominated you

Answer the questions from your nominator

Sarah’s questions for me

If you could have dinner with someone dead or alive, who would it be?

It would be my granny for sure. I still miss her.

What is one thing you can’t live without?

Chocolate? 🙂

What is your favourite season and why?

I used to think that summer was my favourite season but now I’m not sure anymore. I enjoy swimming but as I grew older I started to feel annoyed by too much heat. Maybe I don’t have a favourite season but a favourite weather: sunny& crisp 🙂

Do you have any party tricks?

No, not really. But I’m a good dancer, does that count?

The Sunshine Blogger Award

img_1987x

A few weeks ago I got nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by a nice Canadian blogger Alicia from Takeout&Topshop blog. It was a lovely surprise 🙂 Thank you Alicia again for the nomination. Sorry that it took me so long to answer your questions, but here they are:

1. What inspired your blog name?
Well, I’m totatally obsessed with London and a red telephone box is such an icon that I just had to choose it as my blog name. Plus, I do have quite a number of photos pretending to be making a phone call from a red phone box so…And just to clarify I’m not from England!

2. What are the three most important things in your life at the moment?
Things:my engagement &wedding rings; my travel journals and photos; my blog

3. Have you ever danced in the rain?
Hmm.. I don’t think so.But I love dancing. It’so relaxing to loose oneself in music.

4. Who is your inspiration?
Honestly, I can admire certain people for achieving big important things but I cant’t say that I have a single person as a real inspiration.

LIEBSTER AWARD

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:

  1. 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! 🙂

  1. 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 :).

  1. 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.

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers

I’ve been nominated for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award  by amazing Kelly Michelle from Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes blog. Her Afternoon Tea posts will make you fond of tea even if you hate it while her English castles posts make me want to book the next flight back to England. 🙂
I was so happy when I saw this unexpected nomination since I’ve only been blogging for less than three months! 🙂 I’m delighted to see that my efforts have been appreciated.

Without further ado, here are my answers to her questions:

Where is your all-time favourite destination?
Hands down it’s got to be London! Just check the name of my blog! Seriously, London is my first love.


Which post are you most proud of?
This one is a bit difficult. There are some posts that I’m satisfied with, some that I’m happy with and there are some that I felt I had to write and publish even though I wasn’t too pleased with them. But who am I to say that ?You should ask my readers 🙂

Have you read my post on Bled?
Have you read my post on Bled?

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party, alive or dead?
Agatha Christie, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan), Duchess of Cambridge Kate (I saw her once in a car in Edinburgh) and.. I don’t know. Seriously, I’m not that bothered with celebrities. I’d rather call my granny who passed away when I was a teenager. I’d love her to try out my muffins.
