I would love to thank Kayla of The Rustic Hideaway for nominating me for the Liebster Award ! If you haven’t got to know her you should definitely check her out, she’s pretty incredible and a really good writer !
What is the Liebster Award?
The Liebster Award is something that was created by bloggers to help recognize other bloggers. The word “Liebster” means dearest, sweetest, kindest and sweetheart in German. The Award works like a chain letter and when nominated, should be passed on as paying it forward. It helps bloggers like me who are fairly new by sharing their blog with the world !

The questions Kayla wants me to answer are:
What was the inspiration behind your blog?
The main inspiration behind my blog is all the adventures I have been blessed to go on. I love being able to share them with everyone and hopefully help with their future travels by giving advice based on my experience.
Which bloggers do you look to for inspiration that you think could help others as well?
There are 2 bloggers I wouldn’t hesitate to ask questions to especially when it comes to my blog. Eliza of Digital Travel Guru, Alex of Better Together Home. They are truly amazing and by being apart of their group on Facebook I have really grown my blog and I have them to thank !
What is your #1 goal for your blog?
My #1 goal of my blog is to be able to share the places I’ve gone to in order to make others want to visit it too. It’s important to explore the world and I want help those take a step toward their next destination.
Who is your biggest blogging supporter?
My biggest blogging supporter is probably my mom. Every time I share posts on Facebook or wherever she’s always one of the first to read it and share it with her friends.
What advice do you have for new bloggers?
Have patience ! Your blog will grow over time you just have to stay invested in it. It’s not all about followers either. You started a blog because you’re passionate about something and want to share it with others, definitely keep that in mind.
What forms of social media do you use to promote your blog?
Although I’ve downloaded StumbleUpon, Pinterest and Flipboard, I tend to promote my blog on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter the most.
Do you have a particular writing style you use in all of your posts?
Not really. I’m a visual person so I try to include a lot of pictures.
Name your biggest blogging accomplishment to date.
My biggest blogging accomplishment to date is receiving this nomination. It really does mean a lot to me.
Is blogging a side hobby/business for you or do you do it full time?
Blogging is a side hobby for me. I am about to start my new journey as a full time Travel Consultant. Blogging can definitely tie into this new role.
What is your favorite topic to blog about?
Travel ! Anything to do with it, whether it be tips on where to go and eat or just a summary of my trip.
How interactive are you with those who read your blog?
I try to engage with everyone who reads my blog especially if they leave a comment. I might not know what to say all the time but I will always like the comment to show I’ve acknowledged and appreciate it.
