This morning I awoke to quite a surprise when I received a Liebster award nomination. Many thanks to Brittany from The Nested Nomad! The Liebster Award is an award for new(ish)/ up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (I am using Bloglovin followers to qualify) and are working on developing their readership. This is kind of a “pay it forward” award, so I’m nominating 11 bloggers to share the love with.

One of the rules of receiving a Liebster award is that you have to answer 11 questions about yourself, so here are mine. These answers will hopefully help you get to know the mum behind this blog.


1. How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what’s it about? Choosing a blog title came fairly easily to me I am a mum that continuously wanders with her son. I have serious Wanderlust and I’m a mum so Voila! There you have it, The Wandering Mum 

2. Where does your blogging inspiration come from? My inspiration is to pass on all the great adventures my son       and I get to have, I hope my blog can help other families get out and see things, inform people of whats on, help           parents choose destinations suitable for their families. Plus its nice to get to relive our adventures through writing   about them and going back over the photos 

3. Can you give 11 random facts about yourself? 
* I am a single mother
* I moved to the otherside of the world on my own when I was 15
* I learned I was pregnant in Malta on holidays 
* I love chocolate, like really really love it 
* I am mum to an only child 
* I taught english in China 
* I ran a prestigue Golf Club in New Zealand 
* I mined for gold in Western Australia 
* I worked in Investment banking in Ireland 
* I have lived in 4 states in Australia 
* I suffer badly from insomnia so most of my blogging is done somewhere around 2am.

4. What is something you’ve been loving lately? We have recently moved back to area where I grew up so its been amazing catching up with old friends and family. 

5. What is it you love most about blogging?  See question 2, I love having a platform to relive all of our adventures 

6. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be? hmmm OK, Im going to go for a combination of shallow and not so              shallow… 1. 2 x open ended round the world plane tickets for my son and I.  2. For no one anywhere to go hungry      3. For my son to keep his never ending joy of life and keep his amazement and wonder of all things. (oops I should      probably have wished for some spending money too) 

7.What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why? Can I choose a whole continent and say Africa? or I know Morocco; the food, the colours, the bazaars wow!

8. What are you currently watching or reading? I watch very little TV and mostly at the moment I seem to find             myself reading loads of blogs rather than books.

9. A long-lost relative leaves you a large sum of money. What do you do with it? Head to Cambodia and work with      Sunshine Children’s Village Orphanage however they need me and from there do some further travelling. 

10. What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself? Walk or blog or eat aforementioned                  chocolate 

11. Where do you see yourself in five years time? Hopefully doing exactly what I’m doing now; enjoying life with my  son, taking chances to get out and see the world and loving it.

So there you have it, there are 11 answers about me and some rather random facts.
