As far as I can tell it is another great way to allow female bloggers to connect, to share a little more about themselves and to reach out and get to know others. What a beautiful way to connect all of us?!
Thank you so much to TEFL Adventures for nominating me. I actually wasn’t aware you nominated me until I was checking up on your blog and saw this! I love reading about TEFL tips and inspiration! Your blog helps me all the time.
The next step is for me to answer the questions then coming up with my own 10 questions and choosing up to 10 bloggers to nominate myself. Here are the questions set by Claire:
- What has made you the blogger you are today? I think I’ve grown a lot just by making time to write. I’ve learned a lot about myself, about blogging as an art and design. I’d have to thank other bloggers and pinterest for helping me find inspiration, resources and more for growing.
- What has been your favourite place to travel to? I went to Costa Rica in high school but I’ll still never forget sleeping in a hut on a beach and petting turtles in the middle of the night.
- What do you miss when you are travel? I miss my family and friends. I definitely get homesick and lonely when I’m abroad.
- What advice would you give to a first time traveller? I would say put less value in things and more value in experiences.
- What is your favourite piece of travelling equipment? I guess my backpack. I spent like $120 on a Osprey 30L backpack from REI and it’s amazing for storing my entire world.
- What is your all time favourite piece of travelling music? You+Me is an incredible album/ music group. Their music really helps me feel zen when I’m stressed out. It’s such a beautiful album and I simply adore Pink.
- What is the best food you have eaten on your travels and why? I ate this thing called Sima which I might just like because we share the name. I had it in Budapest and it’s deep fried dough with cream cheese, mozzarella, onions and garlic butter. It’s so bad for me but so yummy.
- Are you a “Lara Croft” or a “Bridget Jones”? I wish I was more like Lara Croft but honestly I’m more like awkward Bridget Jones.
- What is the worst thing you have seen when travelling? I mean, I see a lot of young prostitutes and homeless people. It always makes me sad. The worst thing I saw was in New York City. A drunk, homeless man fell and no one would help him up. They just stood around him. I ran to him helped him sit up, put on his glasses and calmed him down. Then I made sure the ambulance was on its way before I left him. I even had a woman tell me, “Don’t touch him, he’s just a drunk.” It broke my heart to see him treated so badly. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been in a position where we wanted a little compassion.
- Have you ever had any medical problems when travelling? Strangely, enough the worst illness I had was in Massachusetts in high school because I became vegetarian. I had a stomach virus and had to have EIGHT IVs of fluid and my bitchy camp counselor talking about her shitty poetry. I was in and out of the hospital for like 2 days. It was awful. Since I’ve become vegetarian and regularly take vitamins, I haven’t been sick abroad.
