Here are our answers to Cheerful trails questions :

  1. What or Who has inspired you the most in your blogging journey?

This is an interesting question, who inspired us through our travel blogging journey? We were inspired and still are by our friends and family. Each time when we came back from a trip, people wonder how was our trip? What did we like the most? Could you send us some pictures? Now everyone can find the answers of these questions and much more content in our blog below! 

  1. What’s the one song from your playlist that’s your all-time favourite?

The one song from our playlist is “In my feelings” from Drake. We fell in love with the rhythm of the song. The video is shot in New Orleans, a city we hope to visit very soon.

  1. What is the one place that you feel everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime?

We think that everyone should visit Hawaii; it is such a gem of the earth, our happy place. However, we do not want that to happen because it could damage the environment. 

  1. Do you buy souvenirs? Which is the most treasured souvenir you have bought and from which destination?

We definitely buy souvenirs! We love all them so very difficult to choose..but I would say that 2 years ago, we went on trip to the west coast of USA and we went on the Grand Canyon, the show was spectacular! We hiked 12km and on the way back we stopped at a native american community shop and I bought this mug! We are huge fans of craft art of any type. My morning ritual starts with a coffee in this mug 😛

  1. Have you ever celebrated or attended a festival with the locals in the city you have been traveling too?

Oh hell yeah! This summer we went to Toronto for Caribana! The biggest Caribbean festival on North America. In case, it does not ring the bell to you, check out the link of our post here and partiful video! Party like no tomorrow.

  1. What is the weirdest food you have ever tasted while traveling?

The weirdest food we tried is crocodile in Florida. When we went there for the first time, our friend advised us to try the local dish. It taste like mix of chicken and fish.

  1. What has been the happiest moment in your blogging journey till date?

Well there’s been a ton of happy moments since started this blogging journey but I guess the happiest moment was the launch of it back in March 2018. Seeing the hard work of several months coming to reality in the first post “Let’s start the show, this is what we do!” was a big one!

  1. Snowy Mountains or an Island? What’s your idea of an ideal vacation?

Both depending on our mood but as it is winter right now in Ireland, we kinda want to spend some days in a sunny island. I would say somewhere in the caribbeans, like Exumas Island in the Bahamas swimming with pigs or even in Aruba swimming with flamingos… Yeah definitely swimming with animals lol

  1. If you could only choose to live in one place in the world for the rest of your life, where would you choose and why?

Well that’s a tricky one, knowing that we are a mixed couple from Poland and Madagascar, living in Ireland. As we mentioned before, there is only one place that makes us feel like we both belong, it’s Hawaii. Beside the tremendous landscape, from volcanic black sand beaches through wild forest to the desert, Hawaii has 11 out of the 15 eco-systems in the world. On top of that, we love rainbows, and guess what? Ask for it and Hawaii will provide, we were spoiled to say the least! Finally, we fell in love with the Polynesian culture, such a diverse and rich culture…We could go on and on about Hawaii as the reasons are countless.

  1. What is one of your favorite posts that you have written?

Our favorite post is so far is “Travel in Cancun“. We have taken this trip 2 years ago and for what was supposed to be a good vacation ended up to be a great adventure. The food was delicious, the best guacamole we have ever had.  In addition for the first, Andrew and I sailed a catamaran to Isla Mujeres. It was quite a great a moment that we share in the post.

Now that we have answered all questions, it is time to share our nominees, we are happy to extend the 2018 Liebster Award nomination to:
