liebster-award1

What’s the Liebster Award?  It’s an opportunity for travel bloggers to get to know other travel bloggers.  My blog is not purely about travel, but since it is one of my passions, somehow I qualified.  Big thanks to Kas Sommers for nominating me through his travel blog.  When I first got the notification that I was nominated, I confess I was expecting something like this.   But that would just be another thing to take care of.  This is much more fun.  I need to answer eleven questions which will let you, my dear Reader, get to know me a bit better.  Then I will nominate some other up-and-coming bloggers for the award and set them questions to answer.  You can find those at the bottom of this post.  So let’s get into it.

Why did I start travelling?

Like for most people it started with my year abroad. After High School I’ve decided that I was not really willing for work yet so I planned my get away. It’s been my life long dream to go to the USA and so I’ve just made it become reality.
I went to an international school in California where I met people from all over the world all nationalities, religions and customs. And that’s when I realized that this is what I am really interested in – what I really love.

To get to know different people, lifestyles and customs. See places I only know from TV and books. Make those pictures a real life experience.
