Liebster Award Winning  Best Blogger logo inspiration  Globemad Pete and Emma Tryon

So we have actually been nominated for winning the Liebster Award three times … check our bad selves out!!

More recently U Travel Share nominated us, so a huge thank you to you guys! I think it’s time we embraced it and answered some questions!


What is the Liebster Award ?

It's a bloggers award where we have to answer 11 Questions, share 11 fun facts and then think up 11 new questions for who we think to be the next big bloggers on the block...
Winning The Liebster Award

So here it goes...


1. How would you define a perfect trip?

Ooo, starting with a tough one! “Adventurous”, we’re always at our happiest when trekking into the wilderness, whether that’s through a mountain range or into a jungle. We love to be off the beaten track, discovering new thing in the wild. Throw in a breathtaking sunrise or sunset and some great local food and we couldn’t be happier.


2. Why did you start your blog?

Aside from a small compact camera, we had been tech free travelling for years,  so we were quite an unlikely couple to start a blog! There is a bit of a story to it, but a huge factor was so many people asking us for ideas and tips for travel. With us getting to really obscure places and always on an impressively small budget, people were always asking how, so we thought we would start to write it all down. We love to help other travellers discover the world for themselves!


3. Which three locations do want to go to next?

Cuba, Iceland and Uzbekistan.


4.  What amazing food dishes have you encountered in your travels?

We find dishes cooked by local families are often the best, and have had some incredible homemade meals in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. I think Malaysia is one of our all time favourite foodie Nirvanas! We wrote about it in ‘Getting Fat in Penang’ and the getting fat part was no joke! Penang is a foodies dream! If you try one dish, try Asam Laksa


5. Best country have you visited? And why?

Na! Can never answer this! Our hearts are in Cambodia, our stomachs miss Malaysia and our souls miss the glorious views and intrepid adventures of Patagonia, both Argentina and Chile!


6. Apple, Samsung or Huawei?

Used to be Apple all the way, but starting to have a lot of reasons to love Samsung


7. How did travelling change you as a person?

It is still changing us both! Life never stops teaching, so you should never stop learning!


8. What is one thing you really like about the city you come from?

Emma doesn’t really have a home city, but Pete is from Sheffield in England, a place we both love for the beautiful and adventurous Peaks that are always offering somewhere new to bike, climb or hike!


9. Do you collect anything from your trips?

Memories ... Ahh, *insert cheesy sigh*. … But it is true, we don’t make a habit of buying things, just the occasional item like a singing bowl or piece of art. We sometimes pick up wristbands and Emma has possibly sent too many teapots back to England!


10. What’s the longest you’ve travelled at one time?

We’re 8 Years into our travels. But this has included living in places such as Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and China. Even when we live somewhere we live like backpackers and travel and explore at every opportunity. Even when in England, we love to explore it and approach it like we do travel! Adventure is Everywhere!


11. What is your definition of happiness?

Deep Stuff! We both believe that life is about learning to love. ...When we’re learning we are happy, the world has a lot to teach us and we have a lot to learn, making travel our definition of happiness! lol, see what we did there!  We’re at our happiest when embracing all the phases life has to offer and sharing these moments with loved ones. Laughing till we cry and a kickass mango lassi on Asian beach also go a long way to make everything right with the world again!
