It is a great way to connect with other bloggers and show appreciation for their work; an award created by bloggers, for bloggers. All nominees must answer the questions provided by those who nominated them, and then nominate 11 more people who they will ask their own set of 11 questions.
So basically I got nominated to the Sunshine Blogger Awards 2018 by http://themessylife.com , Thank you so much!! I haven’t been blogging for that long, so this gesture really made me feel so honored. I also have to thank all the other bloggers who support me and everyone else. I think it’s fantastic how everyone in the blog community really seems to support each other. Thank you for being such good people.
With that said, let’s jump in to Ash’s 11 questions:
How long have you been blogging?
I started my blog 25th November 2017. So I’ve only been a blogger for a couple months. And I absolutely love it!
How would you describe your writing style?
This is so hard, I’ve literally no idea how to describe it… I kinda just write what comes to my mind. I never really think about my content that much. I just try to speak from my heart and from what I want to tell you guys out there.
How do you balance your blog with work, internships, or school?
I have a schedule to post ones a week, every Saturday because then I have the whole week on me to work on a great post. And in that way I also have time for school and trainings. But if I have more time to write (like this week) I of course take the chance to do so.
As a blogger, what’s your favorite social channel to use for engagement?
The only social media I use to communicate, meet new bloggers and advertise my blog is Twitter. And I think Twitter is a good way to find other amazing bloggers and to make people discover your own blog.

Where is your favorite place to write and why?
This is now I should come up with a great place that have meaning for me and that just give me so much inspiration. But no, I don’t have such a place. I actually don’t have one particular place I write on. I write on my sofa, in my bed, on my desk, on vacations maybe like wherever you can find good WiFi lol. My favorite place to write at is while traveling. Some place where I’m right up in the adventures with a great view.
What do you do when you’re stuck in a rut and have trouble writing?
I press pause, go spend some time with family or friends to just talk and have a good time. Afterwards I always feel like I’ve “restarted” like a phone that messed up a little bit. And I’m working as good as I’m used to and have gathered more inspiration.
Where have you always wanted to go, that you have yet to travel?
This may sound quite simple, but I’ve never been in America. I would love to go to California, it looks really pretty on all the photos I’ve seen. Or kinda just a road trip somewhere in the States would also be so cool. Otherwise my dream destination have always been Bora Bora.

Describe your go-to outfit in a sentence!
Hey! I’m Tuva and I just throw something on.
If you could do one thing for someone you love, what would you do and for whom?
I would book a flight to Cuba for my grandma. Because she has always wanted to go to Cuba and there isn’t much time left for her to explore the world until she feels like she is to old and doesn’t enjoy it anymore. So that would be something I would do for someone I love very much. Take my grandma to her dream destination.
What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but struggled to stick with or accomplish?
Omg this one was so hard! I’m sorry but nothing comes to my mind.
Where do you find inspiration to create your best blog posts or writings?
I would say my life. If I do something special and something I really enjoyed, I can’t wait to share it with you and tell you all about it.
That was all the questions! Don’t forget to check out Ash’s blog, it’s amazing!
Wow! I got nominated one more time?!thank you! Chelsee Dagger
Where was your last holiday to? If you haven’t been on holiday where would you like to go?
My recent travels where over Christmas. Me and my family where in Hong Kong and also in the Philippines <33 Miss it sooo much!!!!
What is your favorite hobby?
Blogging and training!
If you could be any animal what would you be and why?
Probably some water animal because I love the ocean or a lion because Leo is my zodiac. And I think lions are beautiful.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
I’m fourteen so no, no tattoos. But I really want to do one when I’m eighteen! And the only piercings I have is ear piercings.
What’s your favorite color?
Blue! Or green! Both!
Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I wanted to share the things i experience! I travel a lot and see a lot of interesting and beautiful and sometimes horrible things and there is so much people who doesn’t travel and don’t see these things. I want people to see the beauty of earth and what it have to offer. But best of all is that I have a place where I’m able to write and express myself. This blog is like my travel journal with a mix of other things.
Where do you get your inspiration for your blog?
I write about me and things I do, so my “inspiration” would be my life.
What is your best childhood memory?
So hard to only choose one!! Maybe like when me and my family where in Australia when i was 6 years old. And we rented this bush villa and when we woke up one morning there was this big kangaroo sleeping in our garden.
If you won the lottery what would you do with the money?
I would move to South Africa with my family! It’s a dream we’ve always had. And of course donate money!!
Top 3 books and why?
1. Me before you & After you by Jojo Moyes! I don’t know how to describe them but they are the best books ever! I absolutely love Jojo Moyes writing!!
2. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. This is a example of a book you just can’t stop reading and that you just want more of when you’re done!! The best thing in this book is the big twist in the ending!
3. I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. Reading this book makes you remember how much you take for granted every day. Freedom of speech and education etc. I think everybody should have read this book. Malala is amazing!
