This week we’re talking to Miranda from Endlessly Changing Horizon!
1. First of all, what are your website and social media links?
2. How did you come up with your website name?
Its a line from one of my favorite books “Into The Wild”. The quote goes “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun”.
3. What more can you tell us about your blog? What are your goals or intentions for it?
It started as a way to keep my friends and family back home up to date on my travels. I also wanted to create a resource for other people who were wanting to move to the United Kingdom.
I’ve ignored my blog for the last few months, but this year I plan on creating a new design, and posting more. By the end of the year I’m hoping to make more of my income online so I can work towards a more nomadic life.
4. Can you provide us with a Throw Back Thursday picture of one of your favorite travel memories with an explanation?
In 2008 one of my best friends and I went backpacking in Europe for the Summer. This photo was taken at the Père Lachaise Cemetary in Paris. We we’re sitting down near Jim Morrison’s grave waiting for a tour group to move, so we could get a better view. While we were sitting down, we decided to take a picture of ourselves. The whole tour group must of found us amusing as they kept staring at us, and we both just started laughing uncontrollably.
5. Which are your favorite and least favorite cities you’ve traveled to? Why?
Its hard to pick just one favorite city. I love Edinburgh, it’s been my home for the last two years, and just the thought of leaving it makes me sad. I love the buildings, the people and everything about this place. Athens is another one of my favorite places. I spent two weeks here when I was 18. Some of my greatest memories are spending the mornings at the beach, and then exploring ancient Greek Ruins.
I don’t think I’ve yet been to a place where I hated it, however I did feel Amsterdam was slightly over rated. Orginally a friend and I had planned to spend at least a week there, we ended up leaving after a couple of nights.
6. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? Where?
I don’t feel like I’ve eaten anything that strange yet. My travels have just started…though maybe haggis in Scotland is a bit weird?
7. Who are your travel idols?
Two of my favorite blogs to read are Seattle from Seattles Travels, and Kate from Adventurous Kate.
8. What’s your best travel tip?
Do some planning, but don’t over plan. Once you get to a place you want to allow for changes and spontaneous adventures.
9. Which is your favorite post you’ve written? Please provide a link.
My favorite post is from the time I went on a tour though the Scottish Highlands. http://www.endlesslychanginghorizon.com/nessie-friend-or-foe/
10. What advice would you give to someone new to travel blogging?
If it’s something you love doing, don’t give up, and you can always reach out to other bloggers for advice.
