Liebster award (quadruple)

11:52:00 AM

Hey everyone! I’ve had such an incredible honor to be nominated for Liebster award not once, not twice, not even 3 times but 4 times!! I’m so happy! Nice way to celebrate one month anniversary of this blog’s existence, you must admit.
If you didn’t know, Liebster award is an award that is given to new bloggers by other bloggers and that way they give each other exposure and yes you can brag about it. If you are nominated you have to answer 11 questions, ask your own 11 questions and nominate more bloggers.
I was nominated by 4 wonderful people, two travel bloggers, Roberta from Adventurous Miles and Jewel from Jewel Abroad, fashion blogger Emma from Fashion Craze and lifestyle blogger Vlad Vaida so make sure to check their amazing blogs!
Before we start, i have to tell you this will be a long post since i have so many questions to answer (you’ve been warned. For nominees scroll to the bottom of the post).

  1. Why did you start your blog?
    Last November one of my texts (this one, to be exact) was published on Berlin ArtParasites. I randomly wrote it and send it to them and i haven’t expected anything, really. I got such a positive feedback and people were messaging me/commenting things like “This made me happy” “This is exactly what i needed to hear” “I wish i knew this before” etc etc.So i was absolutely overwhelmed with the response and i thought that i want to make people happy, because that makes me feel happy too. So about 2 months later (couldn’t do it earlier because of an exam term) i made a blog.
  2. How many countries have you visited?
    Less than i want to. Hmm, UK, France, Italy (3 times), Greece (many times), Malta, Denmark, Sweden, Montenegro (few times), Macedonia, Croatia, Hungary (2 times), Czech Republic.. i think that’s all. So that’s 12.
  3. Where are you from? Tell me more about your country/city.
    I’m from Belgrade, Serbia. It’s a capital of a small country in southeastern  Europe. Just read my posts, i mention some things about it here and there.
  4. What is your dream job?
    To be honest.. i don’t know. I want too many things (hey what’s new). Anything connected to art and travelling, really.
  5. What’s your favourite clothing brand?
    I don’t go shopping much. Let’s be real, i don’t like shopping at all. But when i need something and force myself to go, i go to stores such as H&M or Zara. So that would probably be my answer.
  6. What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Honestly, what i enjoy the most is lying in my bed doing absolutely nothing (a.k.a. listening to music and chilling on instagram), since i don’t have much spare time. When i decide to get out of bed, i like writing, long walks and photography (i’m aware this sounds like a description for a dating site profile).
  7. Do you have any pets?
    No if you don’t count spider i felt sorry for and didn’t want to vacuum. He’s called Siniša (pronounced something like Seen-e-sha) and now he’s alive and well in my room. (But to be fair, i feel sorry for spiders quite often. And they all eventually get vacuumed. And they were all called Siniša)
  8. Tell me about your favourite vacation?
    Stockholm, definitely. City is wonderful, i met so many people from all around the world, i had great time with my friends, hotel was nice. Literally nothing went wrong.
  9. Do you have a bucket list? If yes, how many things have you done from it?
    I do! Here it is.
  10. Name 3 things you can’t live without?
    I try to have a mindset that i don’t need anything because i believe true freedom is not depending on anything. But now let’s go back to reality. Air, food and my phone would be my essentials.
  11. What’s your favourite TV show?
    It’s not airing on TV (at least not in my country) but i’m OBSESSED with How To Get Away With Murder. It’s my fav show so far because it’s so unpredictable and interesting and nerve-wrecking (and i can’t help but notice how hot is the male part of the cast).
  12. What keeps you motivated on blogging?
    I don’t need motivation to blog, i need motivation to get off it and do my responsibilities haha
  13.  Last 3 apps used on your phone
    Facebook messenger, Instagram, Music.
  14.  Favorite editing photo apps. (Phone or Desktop).
    VSCO cam app! I edit all my pictures with it.
  15. If you were to travel for the last time ever, where would you go?
    On a trip around the world (sorry for smartassness but really, if that’s my last trip i’ll make it a majestic one).
  16.  Do you have any secret talents?
    Well it’s not really secret talent, although probably is to my readers (because they don’t know me), but i’m really into drawing.
  17.  Why you started blogging?
    I already answered that ↑
  18.  Who is your favorite blogger and why?
    My favorite blogger is my sister Mima, from UpCloseByMima. Her blog is closed now, but it will be reopened soon.
  19.  What is your blogging goal?My next goal is 10,000 views, i’m nearly at the half of it. I go step by step.
  20.  What is the thing you are struggling with when blogging?
    I’m new to this, i started a month ago, so growing and getting known is the biggest struggle for me right now.
  21.  How long can you hold your breath for?
    Very short. I guess diving / snorkeling isn’t the brilliant career choice for me.
  22.  Are you enjoying those TMI tags sort of nominations?
    YES i love things like these and Q&A’s, they’re super interesting to me (to do and to read / watch) but no one ever asks me any questions haha
  23. What made your decide not only to travel, but to travel blog?
    Well, my blog is not only travel blog, but a lifestyle one. And because travelling has a big space in my heart, it needed a place on my blog, as well.
  24. Where are you from?
    Belgrade, Serbia.
  25. How do you balance your life and traveling?
    I travel on holidays and breaks, when i don’t have school (now university) - that’s why summer holiday is my favorite (in spite of bugs and unbearable temperatures - i have time to travel 2-3 times). And the rest of time i terrorize my followers on instagram with throwbacks (in case you want to be terrorized, click here).
  26. What has been the most challenging part about keeping a blog?
    I have my blog for a very short period, challenging parts are yet to come i guess :)
  27. What is your craziest travel story?
    This will be long answer, sorry in advance. It was 2014. and i was in Malta with 3 friends of mine. We came to our hotel and we realized our balcony was separated from other room’s balcony only by a railing fucking 6 year old can jump over. They were basically connected. Our first thought was, logically, What if people in other room are psychopaths / serial killers / robbers? We didn’t mind during the day, but at night it was slightly a problem as balcony door were our only source of fresh air so we couldn’t close them. So, what mature soon-to-be adults did? SET THE TRAPS. Every night before sleep, we put or suitcases in a closet (to hide them), keys and other sharp things on the floor, and dragged table and chairs next to the door (at first we put chairs ON the table but after we fall asleep, i woke up and was like BUT IF WE PUT THEM ON THE TABLE THAT SHOWS THAT WE’RE EXPECTING THEM TO ATTACK US, THEREFORE THAT WE HAVE SOMETHING TO BE STOLEN. WE MUST ACT CASUAL so we put it back). After a while, we realized that our neighbors are more afraid of us than we’re afraid of them. But we still didn’t want to risk it. (Just one of crazy stories)
  28. Have you met any people through travel?
    Yes! I met many people from all around the world and i’m still in contact with some of them.
  29. When did you realize you loved to travel?
    I don’t know, i think i’ve always loved it. I’m travelling since i can remember. Some of my earliest memories are with Mum and Dad in Greece (we used to go there every single summer).
  30. What is one thing you can’t travel without?
    My phone, probably. I can skype and call with it, i can take pictures with it, i can listen to music while in car / bus / plane, there are bank apps etc. etc. And charger, of course.
  31. Describe your dream vacation!
    I’m currently obsessing over Asia and South America, so travelling somewhere there is currently my dream vacation.
  32. Where is your favorite place in the world?
    Belgrade, it’s home. Other cities i absolutely love and i can imagine living in them one day are Stockholm, Sweden and Florence, Italy.
  33. What are your travel plans in the future?
    First Vienna i think, and hopefully New York.
  34.  How long have you been blogging for?
    I started on January 19th, so a month exactly.

  36. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    Hopefully i’ll finish university and have my life a little bit more figured out.

    To make myself (and hopefully others) happy. My blog is my little safe and creative corner of the internet.
  38. What is your favourite type of ice-cream?
    I ain’t got no type ;)
    Haha no but really i like all types of ice creams. Specially if it’s from gelateria Vivoli in Florence (this is not a paid ad).
  39. If you could change 1 thing about your life what would you change?
    I really needed to stop and think about this question. I don't know. We all think how great would be if our lives were different but honestly i can't point out at anything specifically.
  40.  What inspires you?
