The Versatile Blogger Award

We started our blog as a way to share our travels with our family back home. We moved abroad on a two year working visa. We now have two months of that visa left. We are honoured that we are starting to get recognition from other travel bloggers for the work that we are doing.

We received the Versatile Blogger Award nomination by Bonnita from Bonita on Safari. On her blog "she will take you to the loveliest sunsets, breathtaking views, peaceful rivers, dense forests, white sandy beaches and blue seas."
The Versatile Blogger Award is an award given to bloggers by bloggers as a fun way to discover new blogs.



As part of the rules of the nomination, We will share seven random facts about ourselves.

1)  We have been together for 10.5 years.

2)  We see Nine Inch Nails in concert every time they play near us. 

3)  We both dropped out of University before moving abroad.
(For Social Work and Accounting) 

4)  We had never been to England before moving here for two years.

5)  Our favourite food is pizza. We thought we had to give it up when we went vegan. 

Mr. Singh's in Birmingham, UK 

6)  One of us has a History degree, and the other is a certified Barber/Hair Stylist. 

7)  We love card games. Dominion is our favourite.


We are happy to pass along the nomination to other bloggers. Upon acceptance they will go on to nominate seven others and give seven random facts about themselves. We have picked other bloggers whose blogs we enjoyed reading. We couldn't pick just seven, so we give you eight.

Abroad 365 - "An American girl and an Argentine boy's love story." They are living abroad in Australia. 

Lost Around the World - "A twenty something backpacker. (She) loves travelling solo, and would like to inspire other women to do the same."

Hair to There Blog - "Two 30-something best friends on a journey to all 7 continents."

Tag Along Travellers -  They "decided to follow our dreams, start a blank page just 9 months before their wedding."

Mango Lady Diaries -  She "shares her travel experiences, perceptions, thoughts, itineraries and tips to give you the best possible virtual journey."

Else Where with Tyler Janee - "A 20 something California native who cannot sit still."

Backpacks and Budgets -  "is dedicated to help you every step of the way in your travels from where to go to budgeting to even packing your bag!"
