I have always loved to travel, there’s just something about travelling to a different country that makes me smile! Even though I’m 22 years old, I have only been abroad to three places, Gran Canaria, Majorca and Italy, all within five years. I would love to travel to more places but with money problems, it’s definitely hard too!
Travelling abroad definitely has its perks and reasons for enjoying, Yasmine has pretty much been everywhere but for her, she would always go abroad every year. Where on the flip side for me, I didn’t go abroad until I met her and I went with her family. I thought today I would share with you a couple of places I would love to travel to.
There are some great places in the world and I want to see them! Shall we begin?
I’m not a very me, me, me person but I do feel that it’s good to get to know the person behind a blog. Recently, I’ve done a few different posts to introduce myself to you, including Things I Love About Motorsports and Things That Make Me Happy. April is turning into the month of getting to know me, Gemma Bray, the girl behind An Ocean Glimmer and today is no different!
At the beginning of this month, I came across An A-Z of Me from Zoe Jackson over at Just Zoe. I fell in love with this post as I found it interesting to pick just one thing that related to each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Now, it seems like a semi-easy thing to do but I’ve got this feeling that when I actually get stuck in, it won’t be that easy… Like right now, I can’t think of anything for the last couple of letters.
Today is a little special post, recently I was tagged by the lovely Zoe to do the 50 Questions You’ve Never Been Asked Tag. I love tags like these, as it’s the perfect way to get to know each other on more of a personal level! Some of these questions are pretty odd and hopefully, you’ll learn something new about me! When I finished Zoe’s, I fell in love and couldn’t wait to begin my own.
I found out that the lovely Steph from Juniper Daze nominated me for the Liebster Award!
This is the second nomination I have received for An Ocean Glimmer, after Abi Mossnominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award last month. It is always lovely to be nominated for something like this, as you know there are people out there that are reading and enjoying your blog.
I hope you’re having a great Sunday! This post is a little special, I will be posting twice today because I’ve got some exciting news to share with you.
Yesterday, I found out that the lovely Abi Moss had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! This was super kind of her and I love sharing this news with you, this is the first nomination I have received for An Ocean Glimmer.
Eating local food is an exciting experience for anyone when you go abroad. Staying at Seaside Sandy Hotel in Gran Canaria was an opportunity to taste great cuisine. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was a buffet of many different foods. Some you would recognise and others with a Spanish twist, a mixture of meats, vegetables, pasta and the best area, desert.
During my week stay here every night was a different theme from places around the world. From Mexican to Italian to Austrian to Swiss to local. Massive selection was available in meats from steak, rabbit, duck, chicken and beef. They were all cooked to order on show cooking stations with professional and friendly chefs.
The food was all freshly prepared, with none of it being cold. The mixtures of different food got your taste buds tingling. Especially when you came across something you have never tried before as it all looked appealing to the eye.
