My First Liebster Award Nomination!

 

Hello everyone! I’m so pleased and excited to announce that I received my first Liebster Award nomination! It took a lot of hard work to create this blog and I hope to continue learning new skills everyday!

My Nominator

I would like to sincerely thank my fellow Caribbean blogger Khristina, The Global Jamaican for choosing me as one of her nominees. Khristina works in the Jamaican tourism industry and possesses a passion for her island home and her travel-related job. She particularly enjoys the trip planning stages of her journeys! Khristina, I wish you an adventure-filled 2017, packed with new and exciting experiences! I invite everyone to follow her on social media via Facebook, Instagram and blog.

 

What is the Liebster Award?

This is an internet -based award begun in 2011 by bloggers for bloggers. It is a way to recognise the hard work that goes into creating informative and valuable content. It is also a method of promoting their own blog and providing exposure to new bloggers in the same niche area.

  3. Answer your nominator’s questions
  4. Nominate 5-11 bloggers that you believe deserve recognition
  5. Inform your nominees of the Award and ask if they would be willing to accept
  6. Provide nominees with 11 questions to answer on their own blog
  7. Provide the above rules in your new blog post

 

Khristina’s Questions!

What’s the number one thing you enjoy most about travelling? –  The thrill of getting away from my own locale and experiencing an exciting new part of the world- the sights, tastes, culture. Especially if the destination is a place that you’ve only read about in books or seen on TV!

Have you had a challenging experience while travelling that you learned from? 

At the risk of sounding boring, I’ve been lucky thus far to experience no challenging travel-related issues – lost luggage, missed flights, robbery etc.

Have you ever travelled somewhere and thought you would prefer to live there than where you currently lived? 

Yes. Denver, Colorado USA. It’s my home away from home!
Which destinations are currently on your list for 2017? Singapore, Japan and Peru. I want to accomplish at least 2 of these trips this year, finances permitting!
What was your favourite destination of 2016?  New York. It was the first time I’d ever been and I wish to go back again, if only for a long weekend!
 How did you come up with the name for your blog? On my return from Dubai, my mom hugged me and exclaimed “My nowherian daughter come back home!” LOL. “Nowherian” is Trinidadian parlance for someone who wanders or loves knocking about!
 What is the number one thing you enjoy about blogging? Setting up this blog has enabled me to learn more about social media, photography, content creation. I’m still learning!
 Do you have a favourite airline? If so, why would you recommend them?  It’s a tie between British Airways and Emirates Airlines for their amazing customer service! I never experienced any poor attitude from their counter or in-flight staff.
British Airways WAITED for me at Heathrow Airport when I was late for boarding my flight to Cairo. Another airline would’ve left my @$$!
Emirates Airlines treats all passengers like royalty regardless of class. Hot towels in economy? Hell yes! They were so kind to email me the Arabic music playlist I enjoyed on the flight to the UAE when I requested it after my trip.
 Would you recommend your home town/city/state/country as a travel destination to someone? Why or why not?
Lovers of biodiversity flock to Trinidad & Tobago to for our spectacular wildlife! We have 99 species of mammals and around 470 species of birds. Tobago is also one of the top diving destinations in the Caribbean.
However, I must be honest with travellers to my country. We are currently experiencing an upsurge in crime. I urge travelers to register with their respective embassies and exercise some caution and common sense! Ensure that you have reliable transport to and from your hotel and other locations.
 What is something you ate for the first time while travelling and loved?
Poutine, in Toronto Canada. It’s made of French fries, brown gravy and cheese curds. A great after party snack to absorb excess alcohol!
Are you a detailed planner for your travels or are you more spontaneous? In order to maximize my time I like to make a list of must-see landmarks and attractions. However, I’m always up for something off the beaten path if the opportunity presents itself!
