One of my favourite people in all of blog-land is Vlad from Eff It, I’m On Holiday. Not only was he kind enough to nominate me for a Liebster Award, he also nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award soon after. I have been meaning to do this post for the longest time, but I kept putting it off every other week.
Well, the time has come to finally thank Vlad proper. And to keep up my end of the nomination.
There are some rules to these blog awards, of course. And it is no different for The Versatile Blogger Award. You have to share seven things about yourself and nominate 15 other bloggers whom you think are worthy of the award. Think more along the lines of “Pay It Forward”, and less The Academy Awards and teary speeches.
Without further ado, here are seven things about me. And yes, I shall be stealing Vlad’s idea of including them in an Instagram format.
Fact #1 : I like to take pictures of my feet. A lot. I don’t know why, but this seems so much more natural to me than a selfie. Not that I am against selfies. It’s more to do with me not being good at holding up my phone at odd angles. Honestly, how do you guys do it so well?
Fact #2 : I love looking up to the sky. Especially when there’s a stunning piece of architecture in my view. What’s not to love about great architecture right?
Fact #3 : I think I love my Converse sneakers a bit too much. Sometimes. Ok, all the time.
Fact #4 : I love coffee a bit too much too. Seriously. Who can resist a good cup of caramel latte? But I have to say the best coffee I ever had was in Portugal. I drank coffee at every opportunity possible. It was a miracle that I managed to fall asleep all those nights. Must have been all those pastries I ate. Oh dear.
Fact #5 : My travel journals are an awesome way to document all the places I’ve been to over the years. I tend to forget the small details after awhile, and it’s always nice to refer back to my journal for some tips to pass on to friends (or just sigh over distant memories *sniff*). I don’t think I have a more loyal travel buddy than my good ol’ Lomo journals. Plus, one of it has been signed by my favourite traveller (and inspiration) Ian Wright.
Fact #6 : I may not be a very confident swimmer, but I love nothing more than going to the beach. Show me a good beach, and I’ll show you how to jump in without a care in the world (just be sure to stay away from the strong currents and jellyfishes)
Fact #7 : Next to travelling and coffee, books are one of my favourite
obsessions must-haves. I don’t think I remember a time when I never had books in my life. I am thankful that I grew up in a household that valued books and playtime. And for that, I will be eternally grateful.
So, before I add on more facts than I should (even if I am supposed to put just seven), let me nominate some amazing bloggers for this award. Granted I do not have 15 bloggers to list down, as I’m sure most bloggers out there would have been nominated many times over. I will, however, nominate the following few :
Have fun, ladies! And here’s to more travelling adventures for us all.
