As 2017 comes to an end, I would like to Thank Sage from EverydayWanderer.com and the Leibster community for nominating ToSomePlaceNew for the Liebster Award 2018.
This post is for 2018 nominations
Tosomeplacenew.com was started in 2015. It grew in 2016 when I secured my domain name and started writing my travel stories and itineraries. In 2017, I continued writing and also focused on Instagram (@tosomeplacenew) to share my travels.
Leibster Award originated in 2011 in Germany. Its an online community award meant to support and encourage upcoming bloggers. When Sage wrote a post about it,I think she nailed it with all the Leibster Award facts (and sprinkled it with her sense of humour). Read more from Sage’s viewpoint here

10 Facts About Me
- I was born and raised in a small town of Sibsagar in Assam, India. I moved to Canada in 2009 to pursue my Masters Degree and have been calling Canada home ever since.
- I have a MBA Degree and I currently work for a Federal Organisation in Canada (2017-18)
- I work long hours, but travel has a piece of my heart for ever. That is one of the reasons I started the blog and Instagram : to stay close to traveling and exploring, when I am not (and working)
- 2017 was huge for me, travel wise. I ventured to Europe and visited Germany, Austria, Hungary and Czech Republic. Also visited Mexico in Fall. 2017 was a celebration of #canada150 and we had a blast all year round – visited Vancouver, Saskatoon, Calgary and re-visited Banff National Park numerous times this year.
- I love photography and use my iphone and Sony a5000 (its powerful and lightweight) to capture my travel memories
- I save for my travels by cutting down on unnecessary expenses, re-use and re-cycle. I look up the destination and arrange with my paid time-off leaves and plan in advance. This keeps me motivated at work and also helps to stay focused on saving.
- I am currently learning Spanish and wish to learn to make macaroons in Paris 🙂
- I am a big foodie. Mexican, Chinese and Indian cuisines are my current faves
- I love long drives, walks and anything warm (like a warm beverage, warm hearts <3 )
- Travel sets me free and may be one day, I will do this full-time. Exploring and living everyday of my life, traveling <3
