In the past few months I received some awards for my blog. Today I finally would like to post about it and thank my fellow bloggers who passed the awards on to me. It really makes me so happy to receive an award. The appreciation of you fellow bloggers and all visitors for my blog is overwhelming and beautiful. I never could have expected that in 7 months blogging so many people from all around the world would enjoy traveling along with me to the unknown parts of Italy. And I can’t thank every single one of you enough for doing so. It inspires me more than I could have known and every comment or like places a smile on my face! You all rock!!!






Obviously all these awards come along with some rules. For some of them I need to tell you things about me and pass the award on to several other bloggers. I’m sorry to say that I’m going to make up my own rules for these awards. I will definitely thank the bloggers who gave me the awards. That’s for sure! I will also pass on the awards and let my nominees know but I’m passing on every award to (only) 2 other bloggers. I will choose blogs I have started following only recently. And instead of telling in total 21 things about me, I will tell you (only) 7 things. Ok? Ok…off we go then!

One Lovely Blog Award:

First of all I would like to thank Anna of Anna In Her Wonderland and Michael Gene Edwards of World Adventurers for awarding me. Anna is Italian but lives in the UK and visits Miami a lot. Check out her experiences via her blog. Michael is the author of several books. His world adventures and photo’s are so inspiring!!! You owe it to yourself to visit his blog! Once more, thanks a lot, I’m very grateful for you awarding me!

And my nominees are:

  1. Formaggio Kitchen’s Cheese Blog - a lovely and delicious blog all about cheese.
  2. Kiran’s Cooking Club – a lovely and delicious blog about Indian food.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award:

Dank je wel Francina of Seasons Poetry!! For those who love poetry and photography, you must visit this blog yourself.

And my nominees are:

  1. Bagni di Lucca and Beyond – learn more about the beautiful Bagni di Lucca (Toscana).
  2. Travelling Italy with Lyn – all about Italy.

Beautiful Blogger Award:

Thank you Cathie of The Cathie Barash Blog. For all who want to learn more about life and relationships, you MUST follow her blog. Besides, I can absolutely recommend her book “The right relationship starts with you” which I found a real eye-opener!

And my nominees are:

  1. Vinophilia – a beautiful blog about wine, wine and more wine.
  2. Canadian Hiking Photography – a beautiful blog about photography. Breathtaking photos!

Super Sweet Blogger Award:

Thank you Jennifer of My Sardinian Life for this super sweet gesture! Check out this blog about Sardinia (Italy) through the eyes of a Canadian woman. You can also find it via my blog, by clicking About and then Blogs related to Italy.

For this award I need to respond to some questions:

  • Cookies or Cake? Cookies.
  • Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate!!! For sure.
  • What is your favourite sweet treat? Difficult one… Fresh Stroopwafels from the Netherlands!
  • When do you crave sweet things the most? No particular moment, just always!
  • If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? I have no clue…sorry.

And my nominees are:

  1. Expat Chef in Barcelona – super sweet blog with delicious recipes.
  2. The Flaming Pot Holder – blog where she shares her love for cooking with some delicious recipes.

And now 7 things about me:

  1. I’m an absolute control freak! I can’t stand all things unorganized. Pretty hard sometimes here in Italy…
  2. I recently found out that I love Sushi/Sashimi…yummy!
  3. As a child I loved to watch The Smurfs. And, honestly, I still do.
  4. How I adore shopping for handbags. My favourite brands are Furla & Coccinelle.
  5. I’m sometimes a bit clumsy; just a few days ago bumped in to the toilet door and needed to go to the first aid.
  6. I can’t understand that some people don’t like chocolate. Just not able to understand that!
  7. Finally bought a new photo camera. I’m in love with it!

Well, that’s all. Thanks again for the awards and all your support. Deeply appreciated!
