Tag: The Unique Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Unique Blogger Awars by Rachel who you all should really go follow if you aren’t already. (Also, sorry it took me forever to get to this.)

The Rules:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  • Answer the questions
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
  • Ask them 3 questions

Rachel’s Questions:

  • Where’s the farthest place from home that you’ve traveled to?

I have just been to New Zealand which obviously the farthest away from home I have ever been. But, weirdly enough it did not feel like it. It feels very much like the UK and as such I felt right at home (except for the weird right wing slant of their radio news – I might have listened to the wrong radio stations, but that freaked me out).

  • What is your favorite fictional relationship?  Either romantic or platonic.

That is a bit difficult.

I do love Kassandra and Aenaes in Christa Wolf’s Kassandra a whole lot. I love how she can be herself with him and I wish there could be a different ending to that particular love story. (I do hope that does not count as a spoiler – but can a story about Troy be spoiled for anyone anymore?)

But I also really love Harry’s and Hermione’s friendship. Just so very much.

  • What is one food that your town/state/country is known for, and do you like it?

I am so bad at this: Germany is most famous for beer and sausage and I don’t like either. I also lived in Scotland for four years – but I hate whisky. People have questioned my taste repeatedly.

My questions:

  1. If you had to pick one genre to read for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  2. What is your most unpopular opinion you want to shout from the rooftops?
  3. What topic could you give an impromptu 20 minute talk on?


Amalia, Melanie, Rita, and Adri.

  1. I forgot about this tag! I don’t like beer either, or sausage, obviously. I did have some good food when I was in Germany but I guess it wasn’t very traditional German food. And I used to live in New Orleans which is famous for its seafood and everyone always asks me how I liked the food down there and when I say I’m a vegetarian they look at me like I’m crazy.

    1. We do have good food – but mostly non-traditional as you say. I mean for people who eat meat the traditional food is also great…
      Is it difficult to find vegetarian food that is still typical for New Orleans? Because I really would love to go there; and I heard amazing things about the food.

      1. The best food I had in Germany was Indian food in Berlin. I need to go back to that restaurant.

        Sadly New Orleans is not terribly kind to vegetarians. Do you eat seafood? If you eat seafood it’s a LOT easier, but I do not. The one famous New Orleans thing you definitely can eat are beignets at Cafe du Monde, which are delicious. But as for actual meals, it’s a little trickier… I mean, you definitely won’t starve. And I can give you a lot of restaurant recommendations. But I wish they did more vegetarian versions of traditional New Orleans dishes 😦
