I have recently been nominated for the 2018 Sunshine Blogger Award by members of the blogging community. I would like to thank Kathy of The Quiet Cruiser for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award and taking the time to appreciate the work I put into my blog.
The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award for bloggers, awarded by other bloggers from the blogging community.
Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:
The Sunshine Blogger award is given by bloggers to bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community. The rules are:

3. Nominate up to 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Melbourne. 100% the best city in the world and a home from home for me. I lived there for just over a year and only due to the Australian government not wanting me any more, I had to leave this amazing city!
2. What is the best memory that you have while traveling?
Climbing Adam’s Peak in Sri Lanka. We took on the challenge at 2am in the morning to reach the summit for the best sunrise I have EVER seen. Read more here: http://goneonawander.org/2016/01/23/climbing-adams-peak/
3. What is something new outside your comfort zone that you would like to try?
Mountaineering. My next challenge and adventure is to visit the Himalayas in either India or Nepal and take on some mountain trekking. Everest Base Camp would be making my interest to the next level!
4. If you had to start a totally new blog site, what would it be about?
I wouldn’t change my niche. I work as a travel agent, I travel at every given opportunity, I live in a country about as far from my home nation as possible – why would I change what I love to write about.
5. Do you like the subject of history or geography better, and why?
Geography relates to the natural world, the Earth and the fascinating land that we live in. History relates to cultures, wars and egotistical leaders who have changed the fabric of the world. Both hugely interesting, I think it would be pointless to choose one over the other. If pushed, Geography is the more wholesome subject as it is natural.
6. Which historic site would you most like to visit?
The Incan capital of Machu Pichu in Peru. It has always been a dream to visit South America and the historical landmarks that litter the continent. Machu O
Michu is top of the list. I love mountains and enjoy a good ruin, so what’s not to love!
7. Who is your role model?
Don’t really have one. I tend to do things my own way and think about it later.
8. If you could start an entirely new career, what would it be?
A rugby player. If only I could have laid off the alcohol, cigarettes and other unmentionables during my latter teenage years, maybe I would have made it into some form of professional sport. Never mind, I had a great time!
9. What is your best travel tip?
Pack light. So many people take the world with them when they go and travel. There is no need. Think about what you REALLY need and pack light. A 40L backpack is all I need now.
10.What was your first blog ever about?
Safari in Tanzania. This was the start of my latest travels and when I started my blog back in November 2015. An epic experience – we witnessed a lion hunt, spotted rhinos saw an elephant scratching it’s ass on a tree!
11.What is one thing that you’d like to own but don’t have yet?
A successful blog, hahaha
