I did a 2015 Round Up last year with these same questions so I thought I’d answer them with my 2016 perspective!
Question 1 – Favourite blog post of 2016?
This is a lot harder to answer this year than it was last year. I wrote some blog posts last year that I am incredibly proud of and I had the privilege of working with some amazing guesthouses and game lodges. My top three blog posts of 2016 are: Mongena Game Lodge – A Piece of Heaven, A Guide To Clarens and Mziki Safari Lodge – A Bushveld Gem.
Question 2 – Favourite photo you took in 2016? (Camera and/or Phone)
A selfie in the beautiful Golden Gate National Park in Clarens, Free State, South Africa.
Question 3 – How many blog posts did you write in 2016?
Question 4 – How many countries visited your blog?
Question 5 – Total number of views in 2016?
Question 6 – A country that visited your blog that you’ve never heard of?
Hong Kong SAR China
Question 7 – How has your blog grown since 2016?
I’m amazed at the growth 2016 brought my blog. I visited so many new places thanks to the kind sponsorship of top guesthouses, game lodges and tourist attractions.
Question 8 – Most read post you wrote in 2016?
My blog post on Mongena Game Lodge – A Piece of Heaven was the most popular.
Question 9 – Places you wanted to visit but didn’t get to?
I was hoping to get back to Cape Town again as well as Botswana or Namibia but alas sometimes things don’t work out!
Question 10 – Your plans for this year regarding blogging and life?
Last year I mentioned that I’d be moving to Scotland and here I am! This year I plan to buy a domain name so I don’t have the wordpress.com attached to my blog. I also hope to meet some like minded people who I can travel with. Amsterdam and Paris are on this years travel agenda as well as maybe a trip back to Africa to get my safari fix!
Let me know your travel plans and feel free to do your own version my roundup!
