Although it’s only been a month and a half since I started this blog, I’m so happy to share that I’ve been nominated by the lovely Allison Judkins from Seeking Neverland for the Liebster Award.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Liebster Award, it’s a blog award where bloggers nominate and support other bloggers with a similar niche. A great way for bloggers to help each other and a great way for new bloggers to get their foot in the door.
Making the decision to finally start a blog has been an awarding decision. Not going to lie–blogging takes A LOT of work and my respect for bloggers has shot up to the sky. Yet, it’s been amazing to be part of a community of other travelers and bloggers. The amount of support I have been receiving is enormous.
If you travel like me and want to see as much as you can even if it’s a short layover or stopover, here’s a quick guide to Nanjing in 24 hours. When I traveled to Shanghai last weekend, I decided to book a train from Nanjing to my city instead of going from Shanghai to my city. Best decision ever, but because I had work on Monday, I had to make it a one day trip to make it back in time for work. If you are visiting Shanghai, I highly recommend stopping by Nanjing, a 1-2 hour train ride away from Shanghai.

Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I wasdefeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.” -Felix Gonzalez-Torres
