The Liebster Award

After only starting this travel blog a couple of months ago as a way of helping others gain first hand information about visiting new places across the world I have been nominated for  a Liebster Award by Emmajaneexplores! Emma was one of the first people I came across when starting my Instagram page and she invited me to be part of a group on Facebook for explorers and freedom seekers from across the world. Being nominated for this award by her is amazing as she has her own successful blog found here and is currently travelling around America.

I must admit before being nominated I had no idea what this award was about so had to do a little research. This award only exists on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers as a way of championing new blogs.

The word Liebster has German origins and means dearest, beloved, darling, favorite, or liked very much. I vaguely recall learning ‘Ich Lieber dich’ at school!

So Emma has given me 11 questions to answer and then I am to nominate five new bloggers that I think deserve this award and give them 11 new questions.

My Questions

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Anyone who knows me knows I am one of those awful morning people, often getting up before 6am for work. Even on the weekend or after a late night I get up early.

Would you rather have an infinite amount of money or an infinite amount of time?

This is a tricky one, would it be greedy to want both. Infinite time would only be worthwhile if those you loved could also have infinite time, in which case I would take the money so I could live the life I had to its fullest!

Coffee or tea?

I don’t like coffee, much to my annoyance. So it would have to always be tea and hopefully Yorkshire tea!

Describe your perfect day?

This depends entirely on how I am feeling, either setting off on a new adventure somewhere with my Husband or one of those equally amazing days, where I stay in my pj’s all day and watch Netflix and drink tea!

What is your dream travel destination?

My ultimate destination would be Machu Picchu in Peru, I really want to trek the Inca trail although I am not sure my lungs and legs would be up to it!

If you could have 1 super power, what would it be?

I am not sure I would be interested in any super powers, I would be happy just to be able to rid myself of asthma.

Do you prefer home cooked meals or eating out?

I love cooking at home, especially for friends when they come to visit. I can not wait to buy a house so I can have the perfect kitchen and dining room for entertaining. The best home cooked meals are always those cooked by mums though!

If you could live in any country in the world what would it be?

Although the UK is amazing and Norfolk, where I currently call home has a lot to offer, it does get a little cold, wet and grey here. My favourite country (so far) is Italy and I could happily live there. Archaeology, pasta and wine, whats not to love!

What are your goals for the next twelve months?

The last 12 months have been about saying yes to anything and everything and living life to the fullest and its been fabulous so why would I change that. Here’s to another 12 months of adventures.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

I have been incredibly lucky with work and have only had five jobs! So it would have to be my first job, I worked in the catering department at my local theme park….the uniform was pretty horrible.

What is your favourite animal and why?

It would be impossible for me to pick a favourite, I have three. Giraffes, I have two wooden ones in my lounge and a canvas with one on. Goats, have you ever watched an unfunny video which had a goat in? Pigs, the tastiest animal alive!
