  1. Thank the blogger who gives it.

  2. Answer the 11 questions he/she asks.

  3. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 500 followers.

  4. Ask these 11 bloggers 11 questions.

(1) Thank the blogger who gives it.

Thank you to Vasudha for this award! I very much enjoy your posts, your passion for adventure is so clear. I love the stories you tell, and the way you engage the reader with well researched history, and information of the location. My blog is very new, so I am very grateful for you to nominate me!

(2) Answer the 11 questions he/she asks.

  • What was the inspiration behind your blog title?

Not much to it, a small smattering of words that try to mean a lot. The word ‘Wordsmith’ which I came up with a few weeks ago I think is interesting. I kind of imagine a writer as a blacksmith of the writing world, forging the initial elements, the words, sentences, and paragraphs together to create something final and sometimes beautiful. 

  • Which is your dream travel destination?

I don’t really have a dream destination, as I have seen so little and want to see so much. So, I will pick an entire continent. South America.

  • A song associated with a fond memory?

Ah, so many. The band ‘Harmonica Creams’, and their song ‘Garage de Rome’. Paris. 

  • How many times have you watched your favorite movie?

Three times.

  • If you had a choice to be in a different city tomorrow, what city would it be ?

Budapest. I have unfinished business there.

  • Car or Train ? Yes or No.

Train.

  • Which is your favourite season – Spring or Fall; and why ?

I don’t have anything against any season, but, out of the two, my favourite would be spring. Its the season of promise. 

  • If you could travel back in time, where would you want to be?

If I would survive, either to the moment before the mass expansion that led to our universe, or, to the single tribe of Homo Sapiens that wandered out of Africa. I would sit at a distance and egg them on!

  • What is the most bizarre food you have tried?

My brother’s soup.

  • Who has inspired you the most in your life?

Please, noo. Too many people. In my family, my grandparents. Many of my friends. In the public sphere, Carl Sagan. 

  • How long did it take for you to write up this post ?

A good twenty minutes!
