  11. I would love to travel the entire length of Route 66 in a caravan


The 11 questions I was asked:

1.What got you started with your blog?

During the first year of my son’s life, I didn’t get to do much of any of my favourite things – reading, travelling, taking photos, cooking and most importantly, writing. I started the blog after he turned one, just to have a place where I could write whenever I wanted to – a place to express myself and to practice my writing. A place where I was doing something that was just for me. I also wanted a platform to share my prior experiences with travelling and photography.

2.Please link to your favorite post you have written and why is it your favorite?

My favourite post that I have written is ‘Like’ it or Not, which I posted more than two years ago. It’s my favourite because I think it gives one something to think about and I like posts that give one something to think about.

3.What is your favorite color?

It used to be black. I don’t have one anymore.

4.If a movie were to be played about your life, who would play you?

Salma Hayek

5.Where would you like to travel that you haven’t travelled to yet?

Bora Bora

6.What was your favorite book or movie as a child?

The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton

7.What is your favorite season and why?

Spring – When I think of Spring I think of hope and new beginnings.

8.What is your astrological sign and do you feel it describes your personality?

Leo. It does!

9.Do you have a bucket list? What is number 1?


10.If you like to exercise what’s your favorite type of exercise?

Walking. (Though I’ve been meaning to try Zumba)

11.What’s your dream job?

Copy Editor
