But wait!? What is a Liebster Award?

- Answer the 11 questions that your nominator asks you.
- Nominate 5-11 bloggers of your own, with under 600 followers, who you think are awesome and deserving of this honour.
- Create 11 questions for your nominees.
- Display the Liebster Award logo on your page.
- List these rules in your post.

My answers to Adventure Flair’s questions:

Do you travel because of any sports (surf, ski, etc…)?

The only sport I have been practicing was to take the stairs when the elevator wasn’t working. I am travelling to explore the culture of a new place and I have never been taking up any sports along the way, although I would love to learn to jet ski.

Which is the longest distance you go through hitchhiking?

Me and hitchhiking in one sentence?! I have never hitchhiked, I am simply not brave enough to do it (just put it on my long list of things I am scared of, like flying and open water). I did offered a ride to a hitchhiker in Bulgaria once. We drove for almost 300 kilometers together. It wasn’t anything like the glamorous image of hitchhiking from the movies. The guy was a little bit creepy, sorry for saying it, but he was.

Have you ever travelled to Bulgaria or any Balkan country?

I am a native Bulgarian and I used to travel a lot when I was living there. Be it the mountainous region of central Bulgaria or the remote beaches of the Southern coast along Black Sea, I extensively explored the unique culture of my home country. I even have a special tourist booklet where I gathered stamp from the national tourist attractions.

Which is your dream destination?

My dream destination is South Georgia island, a sub-Antarctic island where one can find the largest colony of king penguins in the world. You can literally take a walk with some 400,000 penguins.

Because who doesn’t want to be with more than 200,000 king penguins at one place?

Travelling alone or with friends?

This depends. I have been travelling alone to many countries, but I definitely prefer travelling with friends.Travelling solo allows you to better explore the place, but travelling with friends is always more fun.

Which is the place you visited and you’d like to come back again to as soon as possible?

From the many places I visited, I could say I would like to revisit Bintan in Indonesia. Beautiful white-sand beach and clear, warm water.

What was the best souvenir you got?

A beautiful sea shell I found on a beach in the Philippines.

What types of travel guides do you use? (websites, books, etc…)

One word, Google.

Which is your favourite websites for purchasing tickets and accommodation?

I don’t have a favourite site for purchasing tickets, but for accommodation I use only and

Why are you blogging?
