Woohoo! Finally getting my Liebster Award post up! I was recently nominated by Megan of Roving Veghead. She’s a Colorado native (I love Colorado), plus she writes about traveling and her Instagram is full of some delectable food photos. Food & travel – some of my favorite topics. Thanks for the nomination, Megan!

Megan asked some great questions of the bloggers that she nominated, so here are my responses.

1. Apple or Samsung?
Apple – all the way. I have an iPhone and a MacBook Pro and I’m not looking back.

2. What is the most extreme thing you have ever done?
Hm. This one is tougher to answer than I thought. I haven’t jumped out of plane (yet), but I’m pretty good at embarking on cross-country road trips by myself. Done it about 4 times now, so I could say that’s a little extreme.

3. If you could be a superhero, who would you be and why?
I never know the answer to this question! I’m terrible with superheroes and what they do. What about She-Hulk? I’d be all about hulking out and smashing some things, but still being able to have some intelligence. Plus, she’s a lawyer, so she’s pretty dang smart.

4. Would you rather explore the deep ocean or outer space?
Absolutely outer space. I even went to Space Camp as a kid, so my love of space runs deep.

5. What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Not much. I’m so-so on Klondike bars, but I would do some crazy things for amazing iced coffee & lattes.

6. Number one place you want to visit?
Right now, I’ve been saying Cuba. I’ve seen so many people posting about it lately, so the bug bit me. It’s HIGH on my list right now.

7. Travel by train, car, bus, boat, plane?
I love all of the above, but I’d love to do some travel by boat soon.

8. What is your most memorable trip?
This summer – all around New England. NYC, Maine, Salem, Concord, and Mystic. It was one of those trips where everything fell into place like it was supposed to. Right people, right experiences, everything happened so perfectly.

9. What is the craziest food you have ever eaten?
On one of my NYC trips, I went to a Filipino restaurant that served balut. I remember making a funny face about it for photos, but I didn’t find it all that crazy overall. Here’s a fun link about balut.

10. Who inspired you to blog?
Many people actually. I’ve been writing about all kind of crazy things forever. I even owned/ran a successful (and anonymous) personal finance blog before this one, so I’ve been in the blogging world for a bit. However, I think I live a bit of a charmed life. I get to do tons of amazing things that I love to share with other people, so I’m working on doing that.
