The rule is to nominate 11 bloggers with 200 followers or less, give 11 random facts about myself, answer the 11 questions and ask 11 questions to the nominees!
Here are my answers to Elisa’s questions:
1. When and why did you start blogging?
Several months ago I decided I needed to be more creative and I missed writing. Sharing my photos and travel tips during all my travels seemed like the perfect solution!
2. What is your favourite aspect of travelling?
Meeting new people, feeling brave and independent, exploring new cultures/places and trying new foods!
3. What is the best food you have ever had and where?
Most definitely Thai food – the best! I’ll take all of it 🙂 Mostly eating out in Bangkok.
4. What makes a place/trip/experience memorable?
It’s the people and friendships i’ve made, whether it’s the start of a new one or making an already existing one even stronger. Nothing like true bonding over a great holiday!
5. Best travel experience?
For party – the full moon party in Koh Phangan. For adventure – hiking and white water rafting in Madagascar. For culture – exploring life in Cuba.
6. Best encounter while travelling?
Thinking of animals..the wild lemurs in Madagascar (they are not shy at all!) and orca whales approaching us metres away from our kayaks in Canada.
7. What culture, other than yours, do you feel more connected to and why?
The Thai culture, which is more about being a good person, respect and doing good to others. It’s a way of life that I really appreciate and love.
8. What difference does travelling bring to your life?
It makes me more open-minded, aware of people and appreciate everything more.
9. What object do you always have with you when travelling and why?
My camera! I love to take pictures and it’s a great way to remember the exact places that i’ve been to years later, especially with my terrible memory!
10. Your favourite travel blog/website?
Ah good question! Probably Lief Petterson’s blog Killing Batteries. He is hilarious.
11. Share a funny or awkward episode happened while travelling…
Being attacked by monkeys in a temple in Bali..awkward.
