Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award

I was thrilled to learn that Expat Lingo nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award – again, thank you so much! Since then I have been pondering what it really means, and truth be told, I have no clue. BUT it feels darn good to be nominated anyway!

So now it is my turn to share 7 things about myself that you don’t know (apart from my parents maybe who are my very loyal followers). OK, so here we go (in random order!):

1. I probably still would marry Robert Redford. A fact that my husband generously tolerates.

2. I get up every morning at 5 am to do my yoga practice and meditation. But that is nothing to be proud of since it is merely a survival strategy for my Mexican everyday life. Ommm…

3. I flunked out of school, because I was so terribly lazy and was convinced that there were better things to do with my time. My parents were so thrilled and I take responsibility for their first grey hairs.

4. I am sometimes getting annoyed at all the breast cancer awareness stuff. There, I said it. Oh, and it is so not politically correct! But having almost lost my mum to Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, I do not understand why all the focus lies on those pink ribbons. Not that it wasn’t important, but what about the other kinds of cancer?

5. I stopped eating meat at the age of 6 when my little piglet got slaughtered. I only refrained from eating pork at first, until my very smart brother pointed out that little baby cows were also very cute. Everybody should have a brother like that!

6. Probably, I am the only German who absolutely, categorically HATES beer. Urgh.

7. I am kind of an involuntary imitator in that I tend to copy other people’s accents. It can be very embarrassing. (Only the American accent I never got down, still sticking to my British English.)

And now it is my turn to nominate fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award! Apart from Expat Lingo whose blog I just LOOOVE, I would like to nominate the following ladies:

1. The Traveling Times, since her observations of life as an expat in the south of Germany never fail to make me smile.

2. The Time is Write: another very funny woman blogger who writes about the small and the big things in life and who still struggles with the sudden fame that a Freshly Pressed feature brought her.

3. Looking for the Sweet Spot – the name says it all. This talented writer is looking for the sweet spot in anything (even in botox!) while dealing with kids and a bird catching cat.

4. A Big Life: an Australian writer living in a tiny village in Germany. Her pictures very often tickle my nostalgia button.

5.Wie sagt man…? : another expat in a small town in Germany whose story about visits to the doctor totally cracked me up.

6. Brittany knows Best: a passionate traveler whose stories about Mexican ninja mosquitos and lack of a decent manicure made my day!

Phew… I’ve done it! Thank you all for making my life so much more fun!!!

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I loved reading your post — and it is great to know there are other ex-pats sharing their experiences in Mexico!

    • Thank YOU for writing a great blog! Yes, isn’t it always kind of comforting to know that other people struggle with the same things?! Otherwise, we might sometimes be prone to lose our heads…! 😉
