How to get Leibster Award

I have been nominated to Leibster Award, that was a big surprise, and I want to say thank you to Charlotte Rees for nominating me. (Check out her blog by clicking on her name).It is always so great to hear about other bloggers who read your blog and like it. Again I'm so grateful that Charlotte took the time to nominate me. The Liebster Award is for new blogger or bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The main purpose of this award is to bring more readers to the bloggers who you feel deserve it. But by receiving this award you have to follow a few steps:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you have tagged to answer.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in you post.

4. Go to their page and tell them.

5. No tags back!

11 thing about myself:

1. I refuse to knowledge the fact that I am getting older, I don't feel a day past 25.
2. I love food and wine.
3. I also love beer but nothing lager (ish), it have to be proper stuff, IPA and porter are my favorites.
4. My passion is to travel, obviously!
5. I'm not a museum person.
6. To be fair and honest is something I put highly.
7. I love animals, traveling vet should have been my profession. Or a millionaire, that would solve a lot!
8. I love airplanes, a bit of a geek when it comes to this (I'm not a plane spotter).
9. I have traveled only 24% of the world, yet I have been to about 200 different places in 45 countries.
10. I've slept through an earthquake.
11. I love music.

Questions given to me:

1) What made you start a blog?
Answer: The old photo album where you took pictures on holiday or somewhere else kind of died out along with the digital camera and I miss to have somewhere to look at my picture. I also love to travel but I have a memory of an goldfish. With a blog I can find my way back to the places I have been and look at pictures, also I can give other people some tips about different places.

2) If you could go to any place in the world, where would it be?

Answer: I do have a bucket list that contains about 24 different places in the world I would like to go to, but if I shall chose one it would have to be Tahiti in French Polynesia.

3) What's the next thing you plan to buy?
Answer: Well I just bought two pair of shoes, but I need another pair for this lovely Ted Baker dress I bought for a wedding in Italy in June.

4) Favourite colour and why?
Answer. I actually don't have one favourite colour I like many different ones. It depends on my mood that day and what kind of weather it is.

5) What colour is your bedroom?
Answer: I'm in the process of redecoration and painting it but until that is finished it is a bad white colour. 

6) What are your favourite pair of shoes like?
Answer: Black metallic pumps, love them!

7) What was the last thing you ate?
Answer: Slice of bread with ham and cheese.

8) Jelly Shoes, Yes or No?

Answer: NO

9) What piercing's do you have? (Is this too personal?!)
Answer: None any more, have had in my bellybutton, nose, cheek and tongue (not all at the same time). 

10) What is your favourite perfume?
Answer: Roberto Cavalli , Just Cavalli (at the moment)

11) If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
Answer: Antonio Banderas (Yes he is a little bit older than me;) but he is still hot!) 

Having a travelblog doesn't get you tons of readers right away, like a food or fashion blog might do. Some subjects are of course more popular than others. However, all bloggers needs to help each other to get readers and this goes especially for new bloggers or those who write about things that aren't the most popular subject (pleas mind that this might be very different from country to country, however here in Norway the most popular bloggers are about everyday life, fashion and food). Any way, I have found a few blogs that I think should have more followers and I have nominated the following blogs for the Leibster Award:

Hand Luggage Only
A girl and her travels
Travel with Molly
That Adventurer
Sekk og Sandaler

My questions for you are:

1. What is the best/greatest travel experience you have ever had?
2. What is your worst travel experience?
3. How old were you the first time you traveled to a foreign country?
4. What kind of education do you have?
5. What is your favourite travel item, the one you can not travel without?
6. Your top 3 airlines in the world?
7. And why?
8. Best life advice to someone else?
9. Ultimate travel destination?
10. What  is your dream job?
11. Do you have a life motto and if so what is it?

When you have answered this (for me it doesn't matter if you answer me in English or Norwegian, whatever you prefer), please post me you link so I can  check it out :)

Thank you and keep travelling !

    1. Hi. Well first off all I would say you need to Write about something that you are interessted in, like I really like to travel so that's why I write about that. Also I wanted to be able to remember what I was doing on my travels so I started the blog. I must admit that I am still learning new things about how to write my blog and how to promote it. Also for me writing the blog is a hobby so it is not something I live on. I can't seem to find you post, can you send it to me again?
