Liebster Award Nomination

Terrific Traveller has been nominated for the Liebster Award!

In June of this year, I received a message from a co-travel blogger based in Cebu – Four Eyed Laagan, saying that he has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award, along with 4 other worthy nominees. It came as a surprise because I was just on my 5th-month blogging, and I already got an award 😊

Christoeffer John Restauro Estrada, the owner of Four Eyed Laagan has been blogging since March 2016, and has produced many awesome articles about travelling, hiking, and a lot more!

What is Liebster Award?

This award exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart, etc. (http://wordingwell.com/the-liebster-award-the-official-rules-my-first-blog-award-and-a-few-personal-secrets-revealed/)liebsteraward_transparent

How does it work?

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
  2. Display the award on your blog — Liebster logo.
  3. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!
  4. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post.

Question and Answer:

Q: When did you decide to start your blog and why?

  • In my mind, I have always wanted to start a blog since college days, but I never had the confidence then. It was only January of this year where I realized that blogging is something I really want to do since I travel a lot, I love writing and I do photography.

Q: What is your best travel memory?

  • Definitely Batanes – My favorite place in the whole of Philippines.

Q: How often do you travel?

  • Before, I travel weekly. Yes weekly lol – to mountain hikes, waterfalls, and short out of town trips. But now, I focus more on travelling to far places in the country, for me to explore more of our underrated provinces, and share more travel tips to everyone.

Q: What is your biggest travel inspiration?

  • My biggest travel inspiration is my passion for it. I never get tired of travelling, because I know I love what I do.

Q: If you can move anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

  • As much as I love the Philippines, if given a chance to move anywhere, I would choose Japan. My first love is technology, and I know the techie-fan-boy inside of me will be at home in that beautiful country.

Q: What is the best food you’ve ever had and where?

  • There are so many I can’t choose just one haha. I am a natural foodie, and I love dumplings.

Q: What’s the most challenging thing you’ve done?

  • Probably my very first hiking experience way back 2015. I got so tired, that when I reached the summit, I fainted. haha

Q: What’s your favorite place so far?

  • Still Batanes.

Q: What place(s) is on top of your bucket list?

  • Japan.

Q: What was your most embarrassing moment while traveling?

  • Maybe when I had to ask my friend to save me from possible drowning, I was doing the Tarzan swing at a lake, and I didn’t know how to swim then haha.

Q: What do you hope people will learn about the world by reading your blog?

  • I’ve always wanted to make everyone who reads my posts feel that they are travelling with me. I hope they learn to appreciate and take care of our environment, contribute to restoration, and be a motivator themselves.
