Selected pics from our trips, hikes and photography impulses

Baby Steps!

So Ashima who blogs at My Weekend Kitchen, recently nominated me for this “Very Inspiring Blogger award”! Now, Ashima is a very diligent girl, in addition to being really smart and intelligent.  I can imagine her doing this post too with utmost sincerity…

But like a lazy bum that I have always been, I find it quite tough to follow the rules of this nomination- i.e, nominating 15 other bloggers! Maybe the reason being that although I have been around the blogging world since 2004, I have only recently started following some travel bloggers…and since this blog is about travel/photography, I would like to nominate others from these categories. There are some others I would have liked to nominate, of whom Sayesha on the Rocks would take the top spot. However, she is a busy mom right now and so I won’t add her to the list below…but do check out her blog whenever you get time. Her blog acts like a quick anti-depressant, whenever I am feeling the blues!

So finally I have made a list of 15 bloggers I would like to nominate…however, I wonder if they would really find time to do a similar post out of their busy schedule! They are so busy traveling right now:-)

Anyway, hope some of them do take up this tag/nomination and share some more stuff about themselves.

Here are the rules to participate, once you are nominated:

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. Post the award image to your page (the initial image on the post).
  3. Share 7 facts about yoursel
    1. I (Richa) am a mixture of opposites- reticent and reserved among strangers and a chatter box among people who know me, sticking to my comfort zone and yet seeking new adventures in life, seemingly lazy and yet hard working,..and so on!
    2. Perhaps this might be because I am a Libran:-). They can’t seem to make up their mind about   number of things.
    3. I am an Engineer-MBA by qualification. I have mostly worked in start-ups doing various things (again, couldn’t make up my mind about what I liked the best!).
    4. My interest in travel till 2009 was mostly limited to looking up places on the internet and reading stories about places I thought I would one day visit😀
    5. In 2008, I met this guy (Tushit) who kindled in my mind an alternate vision of my life- full of travel and new experiences.
    6. We got married in Dec 2008 and since Jan 2009, I have traveled to 10 countries across 4 continents. Not counting India, which is where I have lived for most of my life. However, numbers don’t reflect much. We went to 7 countries during our 20 day road trip in Europe in 2009.
    7. I was interested in photography before, but my husband’s love for photography has been infectious. Recently we (err..mostly he!) also started a photography website- http://twistedtripod.com
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers and let them know they’ve been nominated
