A Lovely Award

Thank you to Jaspa’s Journal for nominating “Flying Goannas” for the One Lovely Blog Award. Jaspa has a unique view of the world and some of his travel tales have been published in 3 e-books.

I’ve accepted the award, so here’s the deal:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you √ tick
  2. List the rules and display the award √ tick
  3. Include seven facts about yourself – See below √ tick
  4. Nominate around 15 (I’ve actually kept it to 10) other bloggers and let them know about the award – See below
  5. Follow the blogger who nominated you (if not already!) √ tick

7 Facts about us:

  1. Number one has to be the most exciting thing in our lives at the moment. We have just become first-time  grandparents to beautiful little Rupert. There’s nothing else to say, really.20140921_122925

  2.  We live in a very small town (around 80 people) which suits us nicely. It’s close enough to the things we need and far enough away from the things we want to be far away from. 314910_3504648180952_1063901664_n(1)

  3. We are both a bit afraid of heights. The difference is that Jenny will climb things. Stu won’t. 629152505

  4. We love to travel. No great surprise there, since this is a travel blog. We try to do one overseas trip each year. Time and money sometimes limit our ability to reach this goal but we do our best. Meanwhile, there’s a lot of Australia left to see. Distance is the biggest hurdle to overcome, even here at home. 1604572_10202489238298267_6761958191084864852_n

  5. We once slept on a friend’s bathroom floor – because the house was so small that was the only spare spot to stretch out. Three floors, 3 rooms. Very quaint but just a bit too small for me to live in.P1010517

  6. We welcome random travellers into our home through hosting sites Hospitality Club, Couchsurfing and Warm Showers. It’s a great way to experience other cultures without leaving home.www.kizoa.com_collage_2014-06-21_14-21-45

  7. Our kids are even crazier than us. Be afraid!IMG_3308

  1. Jenny, I’m honoured. ❤ I haven't been getting around the blogs as much lately, I see your climb on the bridge has come and gone now. Story Bridge would be a bit tame compared to the Coathanger! Gorgeous photo! I haven't seen countries superimposed over Australia like that before, a very effective way to show size comparison. Congratulations on the birth of the first grandchild. Always a thrill, that first one. Thanks for sharing your seven things. I'll go get a cuppa, check out what I've missed here, and then drop by the others gracing the honour list. 😀


Thanks for travelling with us. We'd love to hear what you think.
