I would also like to thank this beautiful storyteller Estar from for nominating me for the same award on the same day as Lucy did (I couldn’t decide whom to tag, so thanking both!). Feels blessed to have received two of these!

How it all started?

I had been going through some real low times with extreme existential crisis when I quit my job due to some domestic reasons. Tried a number of things to cope up, but nothing really could be of good help. I had earlier written a few posts casually on random travel websites and received appreciation from my peers for the same. This gave me strength and I decided to start my own blog to share the experiences I have gained through my travels.

Thus, thevagabonddreamer came into existence in June 2017 and this has given me a new direction and I hope to grow this for the sake of love for travel and to inspire people to explore.

Advice to Bloggers:

  1. Write about something you love. Don’t start a blog just because everyone else is writing or choose a niche which attracts more readers. If you write with your heart, you will feel the contentment and readers will follow.
  2. Choose Quality over Quantity. Don’t write for the sake of writing. It is okay if you don’t post very often, don’t compromise the quality of your writing just to increase the number of post uploads.

I received a number of blog links on different groups for the nominations, tried reading a little from all of those and narrowed down to my favorite 10. I have nominated the following bloggers for the award-
