Great day everyone!
I’m feeling pretty thrilled and extremely grateful right now. Taylor Takes a Trip has only been active for a month now and I’ve already been selected as a nominee for the Liebster Award. I would like to send a special thanks to Candace Boggan of Candace Travels for the nomination. Candace is a travel blogger like myself, and an outstanding writer. Feel free to check out her site, You definitely will not be disappointed!
For those who are not familiar with the Liebster Awards, it’s an accolade that helps bring awareness to other bloggers that are fairly new and want to expand their following. Along with the nomination, there is a set of eleven questions given to upcoming bloggers by fellow bloggers. Those that are nominated must come up with their own set of questions and nominate five additional bloggers.

My answers to Candace’s 11 Questions:

Does your blog cater to a niche group of travelers? If so, why did you select that particular group?

Not necessarily. Taylor Takes a Trip caters to anyone that enjoys travel stories, photography, and for those seeking travel and/or lifestyle tips. But most importantly, the purpose of my blog is to inspire others to step out on faith and take risks in order to pursue their own happiness.

Do you offer contests or giveaways on your blog?

Since my blog has only been active for one month, I haven’t had the opportunity to conduct a contest or giveaway but it is one of my objectives once I reach a bigger following.

How many different countries does your blog reach?

Unfortunately it hasn’t reached outside of the U.S., but I do have high hopes that it will eventually.

Favorite destination and why?

So far, my favorite destination is San Juan Puerto Rico. It’s beautiful, all the natives are gorgeous, the food is delicious, and I just simply had a great time when I went.

Favorite blog post and why?

I would have to say my very first blog post is my favorite, Taylor Take a Trip…The Beginning, because that was the official debut of my blog and it basically summed up different aspects of my life that lead up to the start of this blogging journey. 

What is your goal for your blog this first half of the new year?

I want to travel to another country by the first half of the year.

Favorite travel activities?

I love doing things that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to try if I was back at home. But when there’s free time, I like eating out at restaurants, socializing, and wandering around with my camera.

Do you prefer to travel alone or with a group? Benefits?

It really depends on where I’m traveling and my reason for going. But I would say that it’s nice to have a plus 1. 

Airplane, vehicle or train? Why?

Airplane definitely! The reason why is because I’ve never rode on train before but it’s on my to-do list, and driving can take hours.  An airplane is quick and convenient.

Budget or luxury travel?


Island or Ice? Why?

Island! They’re beautiful, the weather is perfect most of the time, more opportunity to explore, and you don’t have to pack much when you’re on an island.
