Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Hi, everyone!

I’ve been nominated for Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Yay!

To accept the award the rules are as follows:

1) Display the Award logo – check!


2) Link back to the blogger who nominated you – thanks, !
3) State seven things about yourself:

1) I don’t really care if I’m staying at a B&B, a camping site or a 5-star hotel. But I want it to be a good B&B, a good camping site or a good 5-star hotel. The quality of the experience is what matters the most to me.

2) I hate to see tourists who are disrespectful of the places they’re visiting, whether it’s in Portugal or in any other country.

3) When planning holidays I usually like to have one part city holidays and one part nature holidays.

4) To me, a truly memorable travel experience must have at least one totally unexpected event or difficulty overcome.

5) I truly admire people who can put a tent, sleeping bag, clothes and all other essentials in a backpack.

6) People who travel to another country but refuse to leave their mental comfort zone get on my nerves.

7) I believe in a better world and I believe that travel – in your own country or abroad – helps you broaden your horizons, understand your fellow human being and, therefore, it helps create new behaviours which will lead to a better world.
4) Nominate 15 bloggers for the award (in no particular order):

  1. Congratulations – and deservedly so. I always look forward to the Beyond Lisbon message in my, otherwise mundane, In-Box. I’ll award you my ‘Award of Special Interest and Well-written Blog’ award! It’s the very first of its kind in the Northern, or Southern, Hemisphere as of yet. Sorry, it’s not a Nobel prize, which has money attached, but it’s as prestigious! Carry on, Keep Calm – and Keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Wow! 😀 Thank you, thank you, thank you! Stop the applause, please, you’re embarrassing me! 😀
      Thank you so much for your nice comment, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside 😀 And I feel honoured for having received your ‘Award of Special Interest and Well-written Blog’ 🙂 thanks a lot, my friend!
