Last month, I was surprised with a lovely email from Pam and Kathrine as Everywhere Forward telling me I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I was so happy and grateful that I was selected to be part of a supportive blogging community. Thank you so much!
WHAT IS THE SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD?
The Sunshine BloggerAward is a blogger-recognized award! It’s given to new bloggers by their fellow bloggers. Bloggers that are nominated for the Sunshine Blogging Award are nominated for their ability to inspire positivity, creativity, and joy in the blogging community! Needless to say, it made our day when we received the nomination!

4. Are you a traveling foodie, museum-lover, photographer, family travelers, or sight-seer? Or none of the above?!
I’m a culture-lover! I want to see and feel how it is to live in a different culture, and food is part of the deal, of course!

My trip to Tibet still remains at the top of my travel memories

It’s Italy! Italy is my home-country, but I have so many destinations to explore over there yet.
