14 In Travel

Love = Travel

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I am not a huge Valentine’s Day fan, even when I’m not single, but this year I had even more time to reflect on what is now a long-term relationship with traveling!  I love every part of the trip taking process including sharing my travel experiences.  That is what motivated me to start this blog, and I always love searching through other people’s blogs as well.

I have recently received a couple of nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award from Shawn and Suzanne and from Liz.  So a HUGE THANK YOU to you guys!

Along with being nominated you have to do a few things:

1) You must nominate 15 fellow bloggers. 

A Travel and Tea Diary

Bagni di Lucca and Beyond


Big Barrels and Air Reverses

Bucket List Publications

David Latta

Devouring Scotland

Fireside Five

Little Fingers Life

The Lost Art Of Hitchhiking

Stuff What I’ve Seen

Third Eye Mom

Travel Destination Bucket List

Visual Journey

Wrap Me In Phyllo Dough


2) List seven things about yourself your readers may not know.

  • I love to craft: crocheting, jewelry-making, sewing- I love it!

  • I have a massive owl collection!

  • I am allergic to lavender.

  • The first thing I ever wanted to be “When I Grew Up” was a World Wildlife Photographer.

  • I love to eat, and I do it way more than I should!

  • I love lazy days when I can sit in bed with a good book.

  • I love tea!


3) Go let your nominees know that you’ve nominated them!


4) Thank the blogger who nominated you!


So another huge thank you to Shawn & Suzanne and Liz!  I love following your blogs and appreciate you nominating me!

      You definitely should! I used your blog to help me plan parts of my trip to Italy this past fall, so you definitely deserve the nomination!

    Thanks so much Ashley for the nomination and also congrats on being nominated yourself! I have done this before actually (about six or seven months ago) but may think of a way to do it by advising others on some great new blogs I’ve found. I also want to check out all the ones you have listed as well because I love find new blogs to read! Thanks again!

    Thanks you so much for nominating me and congratulations for being nominated yourself. I love reading your blog because I also love to travel.
    I am so glad you like reading my blog, too, as I some times think I ramble a bit and wonder if anyone finds it interesting. Thank you.
    Keep traveling and keep blogging.

      Thank you, and I love reading your posts. I’m so interested in photography and I don’t think you ramble at all, I think they’re very interesting, so you’d better keep posting 🙂
