I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogging Award (I can’t believe it!)

the-versatile-blogger-award

Thank you so much to Christine.B for nominating me. Check out her blog here – you won’t regret it! Her musings are passionate, funny, inspiring and quirky and you might even catch a glimpse of her gorgeoussss dog in a photo or two!

So! What’s this versatile blogging malarkey all about? Telling you seven things about myself of course – what? Wasn’t it obvious? (It really wasn’t…)

So here are seven things about me you probably didn’t know (and if you did you must be psychic or a mindreading stalker – ooo a mindreading stalker that’s a scary thought!)

Just for the hell of it I’m gonna number each one in spanish (don’t ask me why…)

Numero Uno – I love to run! I run 4 miles at least three times a week! It’s my favourite exercise because I can get up into the hills, run off road through the fields and just be completely alone with my thoughts. It’s a fantastic way to work out kinks in my book and also time to just escape from the world for a while. #bliss

Dos – I was brought up as a vegetarian and have never eaten meat! I bet that one made you pause haha. I get a lot of questions about this one because many people simply can’t believe I’ve gone my whole life without tasting the meatyness of meat but oh well! Doesn’t bother me XD

Tres – I live in the most quaint, quintessentially English town you could ever imagine! It’s famous for being the home of Winston Churchill and tourists flock here all year round! The town hosts all kinds of old fashioned events on the green from wartime fairs with a real life warhorse descendent called Hercules who pulls his own carriage (including bringing santa to town at christmas!)

Cuatro – I’m an adventurer and thrill seeker at heart. Every year I jet set off on my own to a foreign land and pack as much sightseeing, hiking, and adrenalin activities in as I physically can. I aim to see the world one holiday at a time!

So far I’ve trekked the great wall of china, skydived, scuba dived, bungy jumped and rode an elephant bareback in Thailand, crossed the southern states of the USA from LA to New York camping all the along the way from winning in Vegas, trying my hand at a shooting range in Texas (apparently I’m a natural!), riding in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon, horse riding on a ranch in Utah, dining with the native americans in Monument Valley, lived it up in New Orleans, cycling around Washington DC in a desperate plight to visit every museum, white house and monument in town, running up the Rocky steps in Philadelphia and sightseeing in New York. This year I’m flying to Australia where I will be travelling alll the way round woohooo! Adventure is in my soul! And that’s why I love to write it too!

Cinco – I drive a Mini Cooper (I know, I know I’m the most english person that ever lived right?) I love driving and have actually been congratulated on my parallel parking by several onlookers on various occassions! ( If you saw where I have to park every day and seen the pubload of afternoon drinkers in front of me while I do it, I think you’d agree I cope pretty damn well under pressure!)

Seis – I’ve been single for four solid years! *gasp* – No, seriously! And I’ve loved every minute of it! I’ve learnt to become independent, live on my own, travel alone and be comfortable with just being alone. One of my favourite quotes that sums up a period of singledom is this:

“Appreciate being single because that’s when you grow the most. And with that growth, you come to know what you’re looking for.”  – Daniel Goddard

This just says it all...

This just says it all…

Siete – And last but not least I’m a bit of a zombie fantatic! I often have intense dreams (nightmares???)  about surviving a zombie apocalypse! My favourite tv show is The Walking Dead and I recently bought tickets to the first ever walkerstalker convention coming to London and the cast are all gonna be there! (For fans of TWD – Norman Reedus just signed up and I’m peeing my pants with excitement!) and to give you an idea of how crazy I and those I’m going with are….we are dressing up – oh yes! I have literally seen every zombie film and tv show ever made and like to think I have a pretty good idea of what to do if zombies come to town…

So there you are! I may have put you off me for life or (hopefully) given you a bit of reasonably interesting info about me that momentarily distracted you from that paint drying on the wall!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow, that is a lot of versatility. Congratulations. Yes, and I bet the Zombies will not be stopped by the Great Wall of China. Just you wait one minute, My Fair Lady,:
        “Dos – I was brought up as a vegetarian and have never eaten meat!”
    ZOMBIES EAT meat, chili con carne and brain hamburger.
        Oh and I think protocol is that singles number their lists by the names of the Rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Green, Indigo, and Violet.

    • oops TYPO, Green is before Blue…and guess it should be “jus’ ooh ‘ait ‘enry ‘iggins.” I think Henry Higgins performed in Las Vegas — maybe you saw him. I think he eats steak tartar…

  2. The meatless living did make my eyes pop! I am so excited to do this and VERY honored 🙂 You also encouraged me a great deal. I have been planning a long solo trek through Europe and have been a bit nervous about it. Now I am like, “Caroline is my hero now because she does this like breathing. Easy.” I will try to have my 7 “me” facts up for the world to see no later than Monday….I need to think about these. Thanks again!

    • Haha oh wow you’ll have such an amazing time! The best thing I ever did was go away on my own it’s so freeing and makes you feel so strong and independent!
      Looking forward to your post 😀

      • This is true. Part of me wanted to go before the summer holiday rush lol and then another part of me wants to be in the midst of it all or at least on the outside watching it “all” happen. Late summer/fall travel doesn’t seem a bad idea…if not this year maybe next spring.
