The Real Neat Blogger Award…


Thank you so much to Keen  from  Goldilocks Lifestyle Travel for this nomination for The Real Neat Blogger Award. Keen shares her tips, tricks and itineraries from a personal experience travelling as a couple and as a family around the world. Keen and I, share a similar outlook as she writes to inspire travel and create memories that will be cherished forever.

The ‘rules’ of the Real Neat Blog Award are:

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

The following are the questions from Keen. You can check out her blog post for the “Real Neat Blogger Award” here.


Keen’s Questions are:

  How did you come up with your blog name?

It entailed pages and pages of brainstorming, as it usually is with me. I’m the type of person who must write everything down and I have notes lying around the house everywhere, so for me it’s collating my thoughts and ideas on paper until I find what I am looking for. Travel had to be in the name somehow, and mindfulness is very important, and something I am practicing more as I get older, hence the outcome of A Mindful Traveler.


   What is your favourite thing about blogging?  

I have a few favourite things about blogging. I love sharing my stories and recipes with others, assisting them where I can, and I enjoy building relationships ( and sometimes actually meeting in person) fellow bloggers from our blogging community, who share similar passions.


   What annoys you when writing your blog posts?

I suppose it would have to be the technical issues we all face as bloggers. Luckily for us WordPress folk, the Happy Engineers at WP are extremely supportive and always there when we need assistance!


      If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

Hmmm, tricky one. Not sure if I would even want a superpower to be honest. Maybe it would be being able to change people’s thoughts and persuade people, and then we could all live in a peaceful world where everyone is treated equally without injustice!


      Name a place you would like to visit in 2018 if you had the money.

There are so many wonderful places on my bucket list to see. If I had the money I would love to see Canada and do an Alaskan cruise.


     A quote that inspires you

My all time favourite quote is from Nelson Mandela…

“It always seems impossible until it’s done”

We must never give up!


A photo that you wish to share with your readers and put a caption.

I’ve actually decided to share 2 photos with you. To me, this is what makes blogging satisfying. Meeting these amazing fellow bloggers in person, is a real special experience I will always remember. Please support these ladies and check out their unique blogs…

  2. My parents went on an Alaskan cruise and absolutely loved it!! I really want to go to Canada as well to see some dear online friends that I never met yet. I totally agree how making friends with other bloggers is one of the best rewards from blogging!
