Its always nice to open your emails, messages, DM’s and find something nice in them. This time round I found a nomination for The Sunshine Blogger Award 2018! To be honest, I didn’t think very many people actually read my stuff, so thank you “Wild’n’Free Dairy” for nominating me! They have a very personal take on the places they’ve visited and they are literally relationship goals! It was definitely heart warming to know someone enjoys my stuff!
1) WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO TRAVEL TOO?
To be honest, I get this question very often and I always say the same thing. I don’t have a favourite place because the world is just too big! Every experience I have has been unique and mind opening. Travelling definitely toughens you up as a person but also makes you realise and cherish a lot of things, hence, every country, every culture and every adventure is unique and personal.
Saying that, I definitely do love travelling Asia because people are so much happier and have a whole different culture. However, I do also love nature so I do like relaxing in a tent with a fire and those who mean the most to me! Believe it or not, one of my favourite memories was not too far from home.
We went for over night fishing in Oxford. Nothing but a few rods, pot noodle and a tent. In the middle of the night we woke up because we heard rattling. It was actually bats flying over the lake! If I didn’t go then I wouldn’t have ever experienced something so amazing.
2) DO YOU DO A WEB RESEARCH BEFORE YOU CHOOSE YOUR DESTINATION?
To be honest, I usually do try to see the places which I have always heard about or I know I’ve wanted to see. It is very rare for me to research where I want to go.For example, since being a child I have always loved mythology so I always knew I always wanted to visit Athens! I follow wherever my heart takes me rather than where someone else’s adventure leads
3) THE BEST AND THE WORST EXPERIENCE YOU HAD ON YOUR TRAVELS?
My worst experience was definitely in Malaysia when my luggage did not land at the same time as me. We ran for our transfer flight at Dubai airport and we made it but apparently my luggage did not. It sucked as I didn’t have any clothes to change into until the next day! However, all was good as I got compensation back!
My best experience was definitely travelling through some of the most iconic European cities in 2017 summer. Barcelona, Rome, Nice, Monaco, Berlin were all so different from one another! We managed to do it all in 2 weeks and were shattered by the end of it but I definitely will never forget it.
4) YOU EVER GOT A FEELING THAT THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON?
I’m a firm believer of “things happen for a reason” whether thats when it comes to travelling or every day life. As a recent graduate I landed in an unknown boat of not knowing what to do with my life. I hated my full time job and felt trapped in the city in which I lived. I nearly gave up on the idea of going travelling.
I got a kick up my but form my travel buddy and ended up going. it taught me so much but most importantly cleared my mind and gave me a chance to think through my goals and see what I actually want to do next. The skills I’ve learnt have become so valuable and relevant and now I have a new plan! So yes, things happen for a reason.
5) WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CUISINE? WHY?
Being Polish I do love any sort of meat dishes, so I instantly fell in love with German food! However, I do also like sushi! I cant get passed the prawns (i just always disliked them) but I have recently really started enjoying crab and salmon. I don’t usually like sea food so it was something new for me. Why I like it? I really don’t know, I guess my taste buds are just changing as I’m getting older!
6) HOW/WHEN DID YOU GET STARTED WITH BLOGGING?
I didn’t start blogging very long ago and to be honest I stopped for a while because life got busy. The reason why I started was because I have always loved reading and writing! I loved my english literature classes and always wanted to write a book but I can never find a good idea about it. Instead I thought that maybe I could share my life adventure’s with you guys! It’s always fun to connect with people and be more creative. Its something that helps me relax, and a way of getting my thoughts onto a page.
7) WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF BLOGGING FOR YOU?
The most challenging part is most definitely keeping it up to date. I always have so many ideas but never enough time to write them all down and post them. I need to start carrying my laptop with me and do it on the go!
Another thing I struggle with are photos! I am horrible at photography so I can never find any post worth shots. HELP!
8) WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE, WHO IS THINKING ABOUT STARTING A BLOG?
Do it and never think twice! Everyone has such a unique passion and hobby. Its an awesome way of sharing ideas and being able to communicate your own personality to others.
The one thing you shouldn’t do though is write it fo because someone wants you to. Do it for yourself.
9) WHAT PLATFORM OF SOCIAL MEDIA HAS HELPED YOUR BLOG GROW THE MOST?
I only have instagram and snapchat! I am not a facebook fan and hardly ever use Twitter! So in essence it was instagram! It’s where I post the most and follow other bloggers.
10) WHAT IS YOUR LONG TERM GOAL FOR YOUR BLOG?
I don’t have a plan so i’m playing with it as I go. I started this as a creative platform for sharing my ideas with my friends and inspiring people. It’s most probably going to stay that way but we never know!
11) DO YOU ACTIVELY FOLLOW ANY OTHER BLOGGERS/VLOGGERS/INFLUENCERS?
I do have my favourite and they are usually bloggers and influences. I very rarely use you tube! My favourite at the moment are Tammy Hembrow
– I just love her little kiddo’s and appreciate how hard working she is. I also Like Unwaerytraveler
on instagram because he’s just hilarious and realistic. Nats_life_blog
because she loves to talk about those things that others find uncomfortable!
