The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
I was nominated by Clarisa (please visit her blog and give her some loveeeeee!) to do this Liebster Award thing where I answer her questions so you’ll get to know more about me (I’m interesting, I swear… Well. Okay. Sometimes.) and ask my own questions and nominate other people too. I did some research and it looks like the original rule is different from what people are doing… so I dont know 🤷🏻♀️, I’m just gonna do this because I’d rather answer these questions than do work. Procrastination and all that.
Don’t ever mention Germany to me. EVER. JK.
We missed our train to Germany and my wallet was not happy about it. We had to buy tickets again, obviously. And those tickets were goddamn expensive I could have bought myself a brand new Longchamp bag or a YSL wallet. But life goes on yadaaa yadaaa.
We stayed at Frankfurt and had a day trip to Heidelberg. Our first stop in Heidelberg was the castle that was built in 1214. Fun fact: the castle has this arch which, according to our tour guide, was erected overnight. It was a surprise birthday gift from Elector Frederic V to his wife Elisabeth Stuart. MORAL OF THE STORY: GET YOU A GUY WHO CAN BUILD YOU AN ARCH OVERNIGHT. Hahaha! After visiting the castle, we went around the old town which was very beautiful. It felt like we were in a movie.
We can collectively agree that 2016 wasn’t that nice. I mean, we have that president, most of the people on the internet *COUGHS LOUDLY* believe false news, Trump is the president of the United States, One Direction are still on their break etc etc.
But looking back, I realised that 2016 was alright in my books. It was literally the go with the flow year – a number of unplanned things happened. When 2016 started, I didn’t know I’ll be in Greece or London or I’ll be handling a fucking big client. Life is full of surprises sometimes, innit?
Here are some of the good things that happened in 2016:
1. Being able to travel anytime I want. I have visited seven (eight, if you count the layover in Qatar!) this year and I actually managed to go outside Asia!
