Today I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Adela from The Perfect Chapter. This is an award for bloggers who have under 200 followers, and provides the opportunity for the various bloggers to connect and broaden their pool of followers. 

The award works on a system of questions and answers, whereby I must answer the 11 questions Adela set for me, and then the 11 blogs who get nominated by me will have to answer the 11 questions I set them.

The rules:

  1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the nominator’s 11 questions.
  3. Nominate 11 small blogs with fewer than 200 followers who you believe deserve this award, and include their links.
  4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer. Notify those nominees via social media / blogs.
  5. List 11 facts about yourself.

  4. The first book I ever read was The Hobbit, with the occasional help of my dad, when I was five.

Questions and Answers

  1. Why did you start blogging? I wanted a medium where I could write freely, and gain experience in a more 'professional' form of writing. It is also an easy way for my friends and family to keep track of my whereabouts on my travels.

  3. What is your dream career? Something involving travel, and either writing, photography or classical studies.

  5. Three things you cannot live without? My books, my music, and my camera.
  6. What's your biggest fear? Anatidaephobia
  7. Your dream vacation? Planet earth? Uhm probably Paris, because I am so mesmerised with that city. But otherwise anywhere where they don't speak english, have nice scenery, and a rich culture. 
  8. If you can live anywhere in the world, where would that be? Europe.
  9. Rock or Reggae? I love most kinds of music. but between these two I'd go with Rock.
