A week or so back, I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by the lovely Caroline from Caroline: Post-Grad. She’s the only blogger I follow that I’ve actually met – on a hike near Ambérieu-en-Bugey back in November – and I’ve been following her post-grad adventures ever since. I love seeing her interpretations of the Daily Post Photo Challenge, as they always provide food for thought, and especially admire the honesty behind her posts. Caroline’s blog is a constant source of reassurance and inspiration, and her nomination means a lot to me. Sans plus tarder, a huge thank you to Caroline for the nomination and let’s crack on with the award itself.
A fortnight or so ago, Seattle-based Allison over at Travel Gourmand nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Allison’s blog, as its name suggests, is packed with adventures, both stateside and further afield, and culinary delights. Her recent recounting of her time in Churchill brought back fond childhood memories of the first time I ever learnt of Hudson Bay – in the Animal Ark book Polar Bears on the Path. (I still love alliterative titles. Some things will never change.) Globetrotting aside, you’ll find plenty of restaurant recommendations and recipes inspired by her travels to try out at home. Without further ado, mille mercis to Allison for the nomination, and (heigh ho, heigh ho) onto the rules we go!
