Sunshine Blogger Award nomination!


This is my first ever nomination and as you can probably guess it’s a HUGE deal for me! I spend a considerable amount of time reading blogs, and getting inspired by the amazingly creative spin that fellow writers manage to put on their outlook of the world, so to earn any kind of recognition for my contribution to this community makes me incredibly happy.

100 WordPress followers!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to take a little time to thank you for your ongoing support for this blog. I can assure you that every post like and each comment cause a jolt of happiness, and every time I engage with one of you through comments you’ve left, I am reminded why I started on this journey.

And although I value each and every individual interaction greatly, I am certainly most appreciative of those of you who have followed my blog on WordPress! I now have 100 of you in my extended friend list and I couldn’t be more excited about the future of this little community I’m hoping to continue to grow with your help.

Let there be more adventures, endless wanderlust and shared love for our world 🙂

As a little treat to you, I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of the upcoming posts on Bellewether:

Next post: I finally made it to Portugal! Come with me on a trip around Lisbon to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the city and one too many custard tarts!


Coming up: a few trips on home soil around the UK, back to Belgium for a special treat, my third trip to Milan, my fist visit to Switzerland, and (FINALLY) another trip to the USA, this time – East Coast!

See you very soon,

xx Niya
