The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is really not an award at all but more like a chain letter.  Once you have accepted your nomination, you must thank the person who nominated you  and then you must nominate someone else.  This can be as few or as many people as you like.  The person or persons you nominate must answer the questions below.

Here are my answers:

1.Why did you start a travel blog and has it turned out as you expected?

I wanted to reflect back on every country I had traveled to.  It turns out I have been to too many countries!

2. What is your favorite place/country and why?

Sri Lanka because I used to live here and have written a book called Beautiful Eye about my life here.  Where else can you visit exotic beaches, go on safari, and explore 1st century ruins?
