The Entertainer Blogger Award…

A Mindful Traveler


A special thank you to Ana from Cook the Beans, for The Entertainer Blogger Award nomination. It’s an honour to be nominated by a fellow blogger that I admire and follow. Ana has a wonderful travel/ food blog, where she share her authentic experiences and vegan recipes. With her support, and the support of others just like Ana, our blogging community strengthens and grows. So head on over to Ana’s blog and check out her delicious, healthy recipes and discover some fabulous travel adventures as well.


  • Thank the person who nominated you add link to their blog
  • Add the rules, so others can follow
  • Nominate people who you find fun, inspiring and entertaining!
  • Answer the same questions
  • Include the graphic in your post

Why did you start blogging in the first place?

I have an immense passion for travel and I love to share my stories and experiences to others, so one day I thought, why not start a travel blog. After only two posts, I experimented with adding recipes to my blog as well, relating the travel post to a homemade recipe that I cook. I enjoy cooking and love food so the two categories seem to work well together. I enjoy writing and I have made so many new connections through doing so. This whole process has been an extreme learning curve for me, and I am quite proud of myself for achieving all this in a short period of time. 🙂

 What is your favourite book?

These are a few of my favourites…

  • The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  • Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • The Hundred Year Old Man Who Jumped Out Of The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
  • The Girl With the Pearl Earring by Tracey Chevalier

What do you dislike the most?

I’m a pretty positive, optimistic person, so I guess negativity is something I dislike.


What is your favourite food at the mall?

I too, don’t really eat at the mall. I may end up grabbing a coffee or sometimes a quick sushi roll to go.

What is your favourite pastime?

Of course travelling is my number one pastime, but I enjoy reading, cooking and writing my blog too.
