Expat Life In Playa Del Carmen: The Wanderlisters
We have been lucky enough to be nominated twice for a Liebster Award. It’s not an actual award as such, more something between bloggers that helps to promote each others work. Some people aren’t so keen on this award but i think if you look at it as an opportunity to grow and share your blog then its a great tool!
Officially the synopsis is as follows:
it is an award only exist on the internet, where bloggers can nominate each other – somewhat like a chain letter. The award can be seen as a way of promoting and recognising fellow bloggers on the internet.

I try not to believe the hype about places until I see them for myself so I don’t tend to feel disappointed.

I have a list of irrational fears the length of my arm and sadly I don’t think I will ever overcome them I just try to live with them the best that I can.

I hold a British passport which is one of the best in the world….lets go with Germany…I think I read somewhere they can travel to one more country than a British passport.

It has to be at STACK inside The Mirage in Las Vegas. Without a shadow of a doubt the best meal of my life! We had the most amazing steaks with all the sides you could imagine. Worth every single cent!
