Encouragement from a Very Inspiring Blogger

I immediately started this blog after we moved to the Czech Republic.  Back then, I didn’t have any friends and the internet was my only outlet.  My initial goal was to connect with family and friends from all over the world.    Instead of writing e-mails to each one, blogging provided the perfect medium to connect.

Since then, this blog has evolved into a venue for making new friends and connecting to like-minded people while still serving as an outlet for things that I find worth sharing.   It was through this where I met Marney of Volunteer Fringe, who now nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I am deeply humbled by her nomination.  Thank you very much!

To accept this award, here are the rules:

~Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

~Share 7 things about yourself

~Nominate 7 bloggers you admire

~Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.

Here are 7 random things about me:

1.  I made 18 significant moves so far.

2.  I can play the bandurria, a plectrum chordophone from Spain, primarily used to play folk music.  When I was 14, my mom enrolled me in a bandurria class to give me something to do during the summer.

3.  I  like putting hotdog as a main ingredient in my spaghetti.  Sliced, of course.

4.  When I was a child, I used to walk 1km to school every single weekday.

5.  On my first year at the university, I,  together with almost 300 other students,  was a victim of a food poisoning outbreak at the dormitory cafeteria.

6.  I used to have a cat named “Tiger,” because he looked like one.

7.  When I was pregnant with my son, I ate 2kgs of dill pickles in one week.

1.  Crazy Train to Tinky Town
