Sunshine Blogger Award

Part of our hope in starting WhereGalsWander was to find others who were inspired by the same things we are: the quest to find the answer of Is There More To Life by searching in travel, nature, and adventure. The more we experience each of these, the more we learn about ourselves. We are grateful to be named by and for everyone in our Travel Tribe that supports and inspires us every day.

Sunshine Blogger Rules

Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to the original post!

Answer the 11 questions they’ve asked you.

Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions. My questions are at the end


What do you blog about?

We set out to answer the question Is There More To Life? And how do we go about finding the answers?  At WhereGalsWander (twitter @GalsWander) we blog about the way we find inspiration in little things and big adventures. There are 2 of us Gals now, Zanne and JD.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

We both found that the more we travel, the wanderlust we have and now we imagine going to places we never imagined before. For JD, she would love to go back to Santorini and Barcelona and is planning a trip with Zanne to spend a few days driving the Pacific Coast. Zanne wants to go everywhere. Dream places are Ireland, Scotland, The Smoky Mountains, Utah, France, Italy….everywhere.

What’s your favorite food?

Mexican food. Wine. Whiskey. Those are food groups right? JD is so good, she is always gluten-free.

Coffee or tea?

Iced Coffee

What’s your favorite board game?

Love board games.  We both are really competitive.  Whatever it is, we will beat you.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

Hopefully, at this point we still have secrets. We tend to start telling stories on Twitter that we have to stop and say “this is a better story for in person”.  JD is a designer and Zanne works in HR in Hollywood. We have lots of good stories.

What advice do you have for new bloggers?

Support other bloggers.  Find others to learn from, ask questions, encourage others.

What’s one thing you can’t live without?

Our phones.  All of our photos are taken on our iPhones.

What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?

We want to connect with others, we want to inspire and be inspired.  We love the idea that one day we could be big enough to help fund our wanderlust.

If you could have dinner with any one person- alive or dead- who would it be?

Too many names, too many emotions and reasons to list

Questions for my nominees

  2. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be? Does my dog count? My phone because it has all my photos and to stay in touch with the people I love and has all my music; a phone charger; my car so I can travel; and my favorite pair of boots
