The Versatile Blogger Award



and the award goes to.......
www.fromatravellersdesk.com


It is an honour to be nominated and awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by fellow bloggers.  My sincerest thanks goes to International Couples who selected and awarded the title to this blogger. It's my first! Thanks Tony for the recognition.



From A Traveller's Desk got the award out of the seven (7) nominations.  I browsed all the other six (blogs) and found equally smart and well-written.  You may want to check them too as I consider all of them winners in their own right.

Ignited Heart ~ A heartfelt reflection;
The Smart Expat ~ A serial expat for over 20 years;
The Global Us ~ Real people, real experience;
Kid World Citizen ~ Activities that help young minds go global;
Bicultural Mum ~ Raising niños in a mixed and matched world;
Baby Bilingual ~ Bringing up baby bilingual.

There are seven (7) things that most people still don't know about me.  
All these I reveal only for The Versatile Blogger & International Couples:
1. I plan and prepare for my travels at least six months from my departure date
2. I like earning points and miles and redeem on my future trips (e.g. aeroplan, airmiles)
3. I can be a good judge in most contests (singing, dancing, beauty pageant, etc)
4. I have a driver's license, but for some reason, I am not excited about driving
5. To me, friend is a treasure.  I keep 'em as long as I can and as long as they want
6. My friends told me that I look younger than my age.  I believed them! Should I?
7. My wife is my best roommate, driver, friend and better-half.

Now, I have started reviewing other blogs to come up with the Fifteen (15) nominees for my next Versatile Blogger.  The first five (5) will be carefully selected by me and the remaining ten (10) will be nominated by YOU. I am going to publish them here soon, one at a time.  So, stay tuned!

    1. Thank you Cris (Pinay Thrillseeker).

      That must be the reason why I do not drive in all my travels. I make use of the hop-on hop-off tour bus wherever and whenever possible. It's a lot of fun though ~ with the company of other tourists.
