Oh my golly, I have just spent about an hour trying to figure out how to get this award onto my site. Doh! sometimes I am soooo thick. I read something and it just doesn’t sink in. 🙂 🙂 I am still not quite sure how I did it, but it is there so let us continue with the exciting award.
Thank you to Michelle over at http://kidazzleink.com/ for nominating this blog. Michelle has travelled extensively and her photographs takes us on her journey. If you want to travel without leaving home, make a coffee/tea, relax and travel along with her exquisite photos and dialogue.
A Liebster Award is like a “favorite blog award”. It’s given to writers of other blogs that you enjoy reading or looking at. Liebster is the German word for favorite, beloved, or dearest. It’s mainly meant for the smaller blogs with less than two hundred followers to help expose them to the world and help them discover other new and upcoming bloggers.
Liebster Rules are:
Just briefly, to formally accept this award, the nominee must do several things
- Link back and recognize the blogger who nominated them
- Answer ten questions given to them by their nominee
- Nominate ten or so other bloggers for the award.
- Create ten questions for their own 10 nominees to answer.
- Notify your new nominees for the award
Here are the 10 questions for me to answer…
What is your favourite thing to do when you have time to yourself at home on holidays? Wander somewhere new to me, take photos and chat to strangers if they don’t run away.
What is your favourite wild animal and what country is it native to? This is really hard for me, I love all animals but I will say the Giraffe (Africa). (I hope no giraffe is reading this) they have an odd shape that enhances the wonder of our world with the diversity in the animal kingdom. They move with elegance and their babies are the cutest things.
Do you prefer to stay home, visit family or travel overseas when you holiday? Overseas please although Australia has its own beauty it is the wonder of the unknown and different cultures that draws me afar.
What was the absolute best family holiday you remember having as a child? That is a funny one. I remember a picnic in the ‘country’. We caught a train and travelled for such a long time. An emu came and ate my tomato and scared the living daylight out of me. When I got married, many many years later I moved to that very area where we had the picnic and it was only about 14 kilometres from the City. It seemed such a long way when I was very young, maybe 4 years or 5 years old.
What’s the most outstanding holiday you’ve ever had as an adult? Turkey. My girlfriend and I took off with no plans, no bookings for 7 weeks and just backpacked around, brilliant. We did it all by public transport. We were both 65 years old.
Where did you go on your last holiday? Turkey
What activities/entertainment do you look for when you start planning for a holiday period (i.e. time at home, markets, beaches, sightseeing, cultural pursuits etc? Cultural pursuits, meeting people at ground level, eating where the locals eat so we can chat (if they don’t run away)
What are your two favourite overseas countries? Can I cheat? Turkey, Cambodia, Canada and USA
Where would you go if you had about $1000 to plan a holiday right now? Cambodia
If you had a Fairy God Mother who could grant you the holiday of a life time….whatever you wanted to do, wherever you wanted to go, however much it cost…what do you think you would choose? The whole world and never stop
Whew! they were good questions, made me think and brought memories back, thanks Michelle.
