Travel Bliss – The Winner of the Versatile Blogger Award!

Oh my God! This seems too good to be true. Can you believe it, that Travel Bliss has won another Blogger Award? The first one being the Liebster Award  and now the Versatile Blogger Award!

First of all I would like to thank the wonderful and ever versatile –  Hawaiian Brian for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Brian believes that life is a vacation and that we should spend as much time as possible doing what we enjoy. Brian created Hawaiian Brian  not only to share his travel experiences with others, but also to learn from others.

So what is ‘The Versatile Blogger Award’ all about?  The Versatile Blogger Award is an online award given to new bloggers for encouragement and support. It is a lovely way through which we get in touch with other bloggers and help in motivating one and another by nominating other fellow bloggers.

The Versatile Blogger Award Rules:

  1. Write and publish a blog post thanking and linking back to the person who nominated you.
  2. In your post list seven random facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate up to 15 other blogs who you follow and that you believe deserve recognition for their hard work.

Now I am going to let you into a secret of some amazing facts which you didn’t know about Maria, the creator of Travel Bliss

7 Amazing Facts about Maria from Travel Bliss:

1. I am crazy for these beautiful flowers!

On my first trip to Europe, I was completely enthralled by the buildings on the streets, decorated with bright colorful flowers! Since then, I have been crazy about these beautiful flowers and make it a point to pose with them whenever I do have a chance on my trip abroad !!

2.Baking makes me happy!

I am fond of baking. Baking basically makes me happy. I simply love the warmth that fills the room when I am baking.  The lovely aroma of vanilla and cinnamon, which wafts through the air, keeps me smiling and happy!

3.December is my favorite time of the year!

I long for the last month of the year to come – December, which is my favorite time of the year, because it’s Christmas and also my Birthday!!  I like the feel of Christmas that fills the air..there is joy, there is happiness and laughter everywhere. I also like this month the most, because the cold winter season just about begins this time in India and offers quite a respite after the rains and October heat!

4. I like to dance!

Another reason to keep me smiling is to dance.  My favorite dance forms being Salsa, Bachata and Samba! But I have no pictures to show me in action 🙂

5. I am cautious as well as an impulsive person!

I can be both cautious as well as impulsive in nature. I am unpredictable and I like that about myself 🙂 I am cautious when trying to take risks, at the same time there are instances, when sometimes, I just go with the flow and act on an impulse.

6. I enjoy spending time with my friends!

I like to spend time with my friends. I have a select group of friends, whom I really enjoy being with! There is nothing more relaxing than being with friends, having a good laugh and of course, just being able to be ourselves.

7. I firmly believe that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well!

I may not be a perfectionist, but I firmly believe that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well! I am very particular in whatever task or project I undertake and cannot bear sloppiness 🙂
