Wings Of Northern Wind won a Liebster Award!

Wings Of Northern Wind is finally spreading its wings and it won its first award!! I was super enthusiast to be nominated by the lovely Charlotte Ahern for a Liebster award, a recognition given from one blogger to another with the aim to share and discover new blogs.

Charlotte is a travel blogger like me who has an amazing blog She Travels, with many inspiring travel tips, podcasts and lovely photography. Be sure to check her out and thank you so much again, dear Charlotte for nominating my blog!


So here are my answers to Charlotte’s questions: 

1. What are your travel plans for 2016?

Japan is on my 2016 list. I’m planning a tour around Tokyo, Kyoto and the beautiful beaches of Okinawa. Hopefully I will be moving to San Francisco by the end of the year, a California road trip is another possible choice!

2. Name three of your favourite destinations and why. 

Sardinia, Italy. The thing that most attracts me in this lovely italian Island is the colour of the sea, amazing and different in every different bay. Also, I’ m a sea addicted. I was born 2 minutes away from the beach and I simply couldn’t live a life without it.

Iceland. The moment I saw the northern lights for the first time was epic and full of magic.

Madeira, Portugal. They call it the island of rainbows for a reason. I saw 11 rainbows in one day.

3. Where did you visit on your first backpacking trip and how long did you go for?

I was 22, it was me and 2 friends of mine. We were away for 21 days with an Interrail trip visiting France, Spain and Portugal.

4. Who inspired you to travel? 

My granpa travels a lot, he has been travelling all his life and he loves exploring. Every time we go for lunch together he tells me stories about the places he has visited. Unfortunately some of them, like Siria or Giordania are not accessible nowadays due to the constant terrorism threat.

5. What is your favourite food dish from your travels?

While we were in Iceland me and my boyfriend had an amazing lobster soup!

6. Name three of your favourite beaches. 

 Capriccioli, Sardinia (in picture). Punta prosciutto, Puglia. La Maddalena, Sardinia.


7. Where is home and should we visit it? 

Home is where the heart is. Mine is in Pesaro, Italy. A quite, relaxing and lovely city in the centre of Italy. Yes, you should definitely give it a go!

8. Why do you blog? 

I blog to escape my routine, to express my emotions, to share my travels and inspire other people not to settle in laziness and explore the amazing world we live in!

9. Have you picked up any hobbies whilst you have been travelling? If so what are they? 

Not really. 

10. Do you ever feel homesick and how do you overcome it whilst travelling? 

I always feel homesick, expecially when I’m away for a long time. What I miss the most is my family and friends. Normally a day of skype calls helps me with that.

11.. What is your best piece of advice for a first time traveller? 

Never lose the enthusiasms. Travelling is exploring. Even tho sometimes things might go wrong at the end of the day it’s all a wonderful experience, your life journey is unique!
