I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Melanie from Mafambani and she is travelling around the world as a flashpacker. She has a passion for cool cafés, cappucino, books, languages and yoga.
This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It is a way to be discovered but also to connect and support the blogging community.
1. If you could earn money with anything, what would it be?
I would love to be a photographer and travel the world taking pictures. The only problem is I am not very good at it but I can only improve!
2. When you travel, what do you buy to treat yourself?
I love to buy something that reminds me of the country I have been to. Like in Egypt I bought Papyrus with beautiful bright images of Pharaohs on it.
3. What does a perfect travel day look like for you?
A morning going out and about, seeing the sites then spending the afternoon relaxing by the pool or at the beach. Preferably with a cocktail in hand!
4. Postcard or e-mail?
I love a good old fashioned postcard and I love getting letters in the mail. It is so much more exciting than an email.
5. What do you miss most when you’re on the road?
Vegemite, I love the stuff and I usually pack some when I go away!
6. What does your perfect Sunday morning look like and where would you spend it?
Spending the day at the beach with the whole family, I am becoming quiet good at building sandcastles!
7. Breakfast or brunch and why?
I need a big breakfast to start the day so I have the energy to get out and about. Plus I have a caffeine addiction so I need my morning coffee.
8. What do you read before you go to bed?
With two little kids I am usually asleep before my head hits the pillow, the little ones wear me out!
9. What’s your funniest story from your travels?
Getting interrogated for hours in Asia as they thought my passport was fake. My passport had gotten a bit wet in the past, it was old and didn’t have a chip in it. It wasn’t funny at the time as I didn’t know what would happen to me but it all worked out in the end.
10. We should never stop learning. What’s the next thing you want to learn?
I want to learn Spanish so I can travel South America.
11. What’s the craziest thing you want to do on your bucket list?
I have already ticked off sky diving so I think the next thing I want to do is a hot air balloon ride. I am usually up at the crack of dawn so I will be ready to soar over the changing landscape at sunrise.
