Crazy Little Liebster Award



This April, the blog turns two years old. Two years of adventures, of life changing moves, two years of toddlerdom. Yes, a lot has happened in these two blog years, also in the two real years. From Peru to Laos, from Laos to Bangkok, from Bangkok to Phuket and from Phuket to Bali.

The move to Bali saw a stagnation in writing for a few months but then things started flowing again. And with the flow appeared a little blogger thing called "The Liebster Award". I´m still not completely sure how much of an award it really is. It´s more like a blogroll chainletter. Either way, whatever it´s called I´m glad it made its way to me and the Crazy Little Family Adventure.There are some things you have to do when you receive the nomination. 

I received mine from Channing Callahan over at eChanning.com. Apart from writing the blog about being nominated you have to answer 11 questions and then nominate 11 blogs you found out there and thought deserved some promotion. 

Here I go...OH, and dont forget to mention who nominated you with a link back to their blog!

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what’s it about?

I blog about our family and our adventures as worldschooling expat travelers. I felt that the whole thing was insane and thats where the ¨crazy¨ comes from.

2. Can you give 11 random facts about yourself?
I love chocolate with chilli.
My hair flips outward on one side and inward on the other
