Hello everyone! Today I will be answering to some Sunshine Blogger Award questions. It’s always honor to be nominated for blogger awards (and I just love to answer any kind of questions) so I’m really thankful for Len Kagami. I totally love Len’s blog so remember to check it out. His photos and stories are perfect to read if you need some wanderlust for your day.
What is Sunshine Blogger Award?
Sunshine blogger award is given out by bloggers to fellow bloggers who blog about positive, happy and inspiring content.
If my nominees want to accept the award, I encourage you to read and follow the rules below:
- Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blogs.
- Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate eleven blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog.
And here are my answers to the 11 questions:
1.When did you start blogging and why?
I think February? Almost a year ago (haven’t even realized it has been so long!) I started for many reasons. Firstly my English sucks so I want to get better at it. Secondly I hoped my blogging would maybe inspire other people or at least make them smile or dream. And thirdly I just simply love writing and travelling, so why not?
2.What is your favorite destination and why?
I think this is clear for anyone ever seen my blog (or maybe not?) but I have totally fallen in love with Japan and specially Kyoto. I don’t even have reason why. That city just feels like a home for me. It’s beautiful, full of kind people and has anything you need from perfect Japanese experience.
3.Name five destinations on your bucket list?
Check out my bucketlist from here. But five destinations are:
- Santorini, Greece.
- Seoul, South Korea
- Australia or New Zealand
- Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
- Reykjavik, Iceland
4.Do you prefer to travel alone or with others?
Can’t decide so both.
5.Name three Must-have items for you while traveling (mobile phones and camera do not count, as we always bring them with us)?
Headphones (can’t live without them), woolen socks and my notebook.
6.Which meal do you think you cannot skip while traveling?
7.Do you prefer local specialties or something you are familiar with like burger, pasta, etc.?
I eat everything but I prefer to try new things.
8.If you have tried some specialties, which dish left a strong impression on you?
Can I just say Sushi?
9.Who is the most interesting person you have ever met on your journey?
I have so many I can’t pick one! Let’s just stay being awake in hostel’s common room at evening forces you to meet all kind of people.
10.Assumed that you are a solo traveler, are you afraid to ask strangers for help, or maybe just take a picture for you?
I totally am solo traveller and this is kind of complicated question. If I need real help, like if I am hurt or in danger, I have no problems of asking help. But if I need to ask directions or someone to take photo of me I can’t do it. I’m scared of people.
11.Have you ever getting into trouble (e.g. scams, thefts, lost luggage, etc.) or any dangerous situation while traveling? How did you handle the situation?
This question inspired me to write my tomorrow’s travel blog post about this story I haven’t yet told. Let’s just say it has something to do with Japan, getting lost, abandoned amusement park and polices who don’t speak English. And like I usually handle all the situation I kept apologizing and apologizing until I go forgiven.
My questions for the nominees:
1.At what age did you travel for the first time? And where?
2.What are some places from your home country that you would recommend for travellers?
