The Versatile Blogger Award

I’ve Been Nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award!


I can’t thank Alex and Ashley, at In Pursuit of Adventure, enough for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. This award recognizes blogs that feature unique content and fantastic photos. This is such an amazing compliment that I had to celebrate:


Gooooooaaaaaalllllllllllllll! (Did I mention that the USA beat Ghana in The World Cup? Woohoo!)

Now For The Versatile Blogger Award Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you. (Thanks Alex and Ashley! You guys rock!)

2. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award and let them know.

3. Share 7 facts about yourself.

7 Facts About Versatile Blogger Award Nominee, Erin Jorgensen :


1. I, warmly, greet alien tourists. (A winning attribute, I’m sure you’ll agree.)


2. I play checkers with beer. A lot.


3. My hair has been (and will probably continue to be) many different colors. Think of me as the Skittles of travel bloggers.


4. This is Clarence The Camel. He is my travel mascot, rescued from the cruel waters of Ogunquit Beach, Maine. He’s also a very good kisser. *wink*


5. Auto-correct moments seem to despise me. Messaging me means putting your reputation at risk. You have been warned.


6. Pretty sure I photographed the illegitimate child of Freddie Mercury & Saddam Hussein at an outdoor bar in Boston.


7. This happened to me once.

(Oops, um not TO me…to the rhino. But I was forced to witness it. Now we can all share the horror. You’re welcome.)

    Congrats and love these fun facts about you – also love the guy with the mustache – have you watched Orange is the New Black – reminds me of an even more beefed up version of ‘Pornstache’ on there haha.

      You’re welcome, Michael :) I’m glad you got a kick out of Mercury-Hussein Jr. I mean, how could I NOT take his picture?

    I knew when I first found your blog that we had a lot in common but I have also had that happen! No, not the rhino. The multi-colored hair! And the beer checkers. Awesome.

      Bethany…you just cracked me up. Lol! Great way to start my morning. (And thank goodness that what happened to the rhino didn’t happen to you ;p) Thanks for popping in!
