So I was very excited when I got a message to say Bee Wanderlust has been nominated for the Liebster Award! I mean I’d just resided to the facts, only my best friends and my family read my blog. But wait, another blogger has read my blog and taken the time to share the love!
What is the Liebster Award I hear you ask?
The Liebster Award is an award meant to introduce new bloggers in the community. Each blogger who accepts nominations from a fellow blogger must then nominate 5-10 bloggers that have less than 1000 followers. They should write a post regarding the award, which includes:
- Thanking the previous blogger for nominating
- Answer questions the previous blogger asked
- Nominate 5-10 bloggers and ask them 10 questions
The Liebster Award is just a really cool thing, sharing the love needs to happen more often really and it’s nice to communicate with fellow bloggers!
A huge thank you to Bethanny over at Her Coffee Diaries for the nomination!
So to begin with I would like to thank Bethanny for taking the time to check out Bee Wanderlust and nominate my blog! Bethanny is a multilingual lady who caught the travel bug at a very young age! She documents her amazing adventures, creativity and thoughts through her blog and YouTube channel, all whilst graduating from college and starting a Masters in Spanish! Basically she’s killing it! Do go and check out her impressive content!
Now, to answer the all important questions!
What was your inspiration for your blog name?
The inspiration for my blog name comes from two things mainly. The ‘Bee’ part is kind of an inside joke with my friends. My name is Rebecca, all my friends call me Becca, but a fair few years ago the nickname Bee caught on. I think it came from a joke about ‘Queen B’ (Beyonce), but then it just stuck. Now it’s what my close friends still call me, and I’m not gonna complain, we all want to be Queen Bee really!
Now the ‘Wanderlust’ part is pretty obvious.
a strong desire to travel.
“a man consumed by wanderlust”
That’s basically me all over. Oh, and here’s the tattoo to prove it.
2. Describe your blog in 5 words or less!
Travel. Inspiration. Fun. Slightly sarcastic.
3. Mention three things that make you smile!
The people I love, sunsets and arriving in a new place you’ve never been to before knowing you get to explore.
4. If you could be a part of a fairytale, which one would it be and why?
This was a hard question for me. I’m not one of those people who love fairy tales and Disney. I think this question took me the longest to answer.
Finally I decided on Peter Pan. The mischievous boy who can fly and never grows up? Perfect. Peter and his friends spend their days having new and exciting adventures. Exactly how I like to spend mine.
I have firstly, always wanted to fly, and secondly want to remain 22 forever…
5. You have the chance to travel the globe, who is the one person you’d take?
I don’t think I can choose (yes, I know that is the whole point of the question..). But, I think different places are to be traveled with different people. There are places I’d choose to travel with my boyfriend, other places I’d travel with my best friend, places I’d travel with my family. Travel is a unique experience, different every time.
6. You just bought a plane ticket. Where is your destination?
Japan. One place I’ve always wanted to go. The food and the culture, that’s all I need to say.
7. Any sayings or quote that you live by?
There’s a few quotes I live by, that I need to remind myself about every now and again that keep me on track. These are my favourite.
‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.’- Ferris Bueller.
‘I just go along. I dig life’-Jack Kerouac, On The Road.
If you have any more you think I’d enjoy, please share!
8. Where is your hometown and what’s the one thing you love about it?
My hometown is a small town in North Wales called Wrexham. The thing I do love about it, but what I often find myself disliking after being there for a long time, is that it doesn’t change. No matter where I go, for however long, whenever I come back home everything seems to be the same.
It has amazing countryside, some of my favourite in the world, as well as all my family and friends. It makes me appreciate my hometown but also makes me itch to go and explore somewhere new, somewhere different.
9. Who is your favorite blogger?
My favourite blogger often changes weekly. I am part of a few groups, particularly of like minded female travel bloggers. So I am always reading new posts I love, following Instagram accounts of other travel bloggers, basically just devouring all the travel information I can.
I am also delving further into photography and loving it, so photography travel blogs are now some of my favourite too.
Here are a few I am enjoying right now!
Check them out!
10. Advice for new bloggers?
I am still a fairly new blogger, yes, I have had mine for nearly a year but I haven’t put the time into I should etc due to constant travel. So I still feel like a new blogger. But I still love to write when I can and practice photography. So my advice to new bloggers is keep at it, if you love it carry on going! I haven’t been an over night sensation, and I haven’t got a huge following like we all dream of when we start. But I love travel, writing and photography so I have carried it on regardless.
Whatever your goals, if you love blogging, then, just blog away!
