The Liebster Award

A few days ago Kavita of coupleonquest nominated my blog for “The Liebster Award”.   I am truly happy as my blog is just under four months old:)  It also feels good that my posts are being read, appreciated and my blog is becoming more visible:)

Thank you so much Kavita and many congratulations to your blog as well!Liebster-Award-Large

Liebster Award :  This is an award for a blogger by a blogger and Liebster is given to newbies with a less number of followers (below 200). It is a great way to showcase and recognize the efforts of fellow bloggers.


  • Write a blog post to thank the nominator.
  • Answer the questions asked by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and let them know by sharing the link.
  • Ask 11 questions to the nominees.

Here are the questions from coupleonquest and my answers for them:

  1. Which trip is always fresh in your memories?:  A trip to Coonor we did almost ten years ago.
  2. Which is your favorite post you have written?: My post on “Bangalore’s groundnut festival”.
  3. What are your upcoming travel destinations?: A short trip to North Karnataka to visit a few rare temples.
  4. What is your favorite destination and why?: Ooty and Coonor, there is always something to look forward to at both the destination(s) as well the journey from Bangalore.
  5. Where was your first trip?: Coorg, a hill station in Karnataka.
  6. Snow or Sand?: Snow
  7. Are you a morning person or a night owl?: Morning person
  8. Any place or city you would love to visit again and again?: Ooty, Coonor and Pondicherry.
  9. Which food you love the most?: Italian vegetarian cuisine.
  10. What is the one lesson you have learned from your trips? Always go with least expectations, having high hopes or preconceived ideas/notions will leave you most likely disappointed.
  11. Which movie/book inspires you? The movie “The Sound of Music” inspires me to visit Austria🙂

Here I am nominating 11 amazing blogs. Like Kavita said, I am unsure if they fall under the 200 followers category, but they are all great.
