Posted: 4th July 2014 at 10:45 • Categories: Travel blog posts · Work With Me

Thank you to Tiffany from Wanderlust who gave me the Liebster Award for my blog 1001 Travel Ideas after a year in the travel blog community. :) This award is a good way to promote blogs we like. First, let me share the rules:
  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you
  • Answer the eleven questions they ask you
  • Nominate eleven bloggers with less than 500 followers
  • Ask those eleven bloggers new eleven questions
  • Let those bloggers know, they have been nominated, so they can continue the chain
Some questions have been posted in their blog that requires some answers from me. So here are 11 secrets about me.
1. What made you decide to start blogging?
Moving to London. I moved to London in October 2012, I had a lot of time to visit things, as I was doing researches for my tours, I really wanted to share the experience with my family and friends!
2. Strangest food you've eaten on your travels?
I have no idea, probably in Monument Valley, I ate something cooked on a barbecue by the Navajo Indians, it was the strangest thing I’ve ever tried. I have no idea of what I ate that day!
3. Which movies/books/TV shows have inspired your travel destinations?
I am always really inspired by Travel Magazines like National Geographic, Geo which is a French magazine and Roadtrip movies and books like "On the Road", "Into the Wild" and "Thelma & Louise".
4. Best piece of advice you have ever received?
I've learned not to expect anything from your trip, just enjoy the experience. I used to have a whole list of things I really wanted to do when I was travelling and didn't want to change my plans to include something else which was silly because the best part of travelling is going with the flow, enjoy the unexpected, good or bad.
5. Favourite travel memory?
There are so many! Sleeping in the desert in the states, sharing a dish with an old Navajo Indian, learning how to fish with bare hands with kids in Haiti. Most of the time what really made my memories are the people I meet.
6. Craziest thing you have done to get a good photo?
In Haiti, we went hiking to a waterfall and the view was amazing but it seemed even more perfect from the bottom of the fall so I went down the very slippery cliff so I could have the entire Waterfall when I knew I could not climb back up on my own with help or a rope! I got stuck there until the kids of the village came down to help me :)
7. Which reality TV show could you see yourself on and why?
None, I don’t like reality TV ! Even though one day I would like to be on a show with Oprah Winfrey, I found her fascinating and it would mean I achieve something pretty cool!
8. First thing you do when you get home from a trip?
I usually eat something typically French like a crepe, a croissant and an Opera, it is one of my favourite cake and I finally found a shop in London that makes them! I'll have a hot bath and I will watch my pictures from the trip! The next day is catch up with friends.
9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
If I could live anywhere in the world? I would share my time between India, the States, Tanzania, Haiti and France to get a little bit of everything I like and appreciate the world more.
10. What is one tip that you would give aspiring/new bloggers?
I would say, write often, as often as you can and enjoy doing it!
11. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Become invisible! I don’t want to disappear it's just that this way I could get for free in planes, I would travel every single weekend! It would be amazing!
