Here are the answers to the questions asked by Becca.
How did you come up with the name for your blog?
I started my blog around a year ago and wanted the name to reflect what I would write about.Travel being my biggest passion was always going to be the main topic but I liked the option of writing about random stuff when the moment took me too, so after an evening of lots of name ideas. I decided on ‘Lisa Love Sun Life’ as yes I do love the sun but you could also read it as ‘Lisa Loves un Life’ giving me the option to write about a variety of different things! 🙂
What is your dream job?
Something that involves travel, lots of it to follow the sunshine year round please. I also want to be able to take lots of photographs, write about things, meet lots of incredible people and have life changing experiences. Any ideas?
3. What is your favourite dish and why?
I love Thai, Greek and (real) Indian food from my travels, but I am almost a vegan these days so I have to do a lot of home cooking. My serious addiction (as in if I survive a day without, it’s a miracle) has to be chocolate!! 🙂
4. Do you have any life goals? If so, what are they?
I set a few of these when I was a teenager. Live in London (I did for a few years) and go to fashion college there (tick!), see New York (been a few times now) but as I get older my life goal is to be happy with the life I am living and to change it if I am not. I also don’t believe in conforming to the rules of society. Just because everyone else is doing it does not mean you have to too. I try to remember to use this thinking everyday!
5. Summer or Winter?
10000000000000% summer. I am always cold! I know I am somewhere warm when my nose, hands and feet are no longer ice cold. 100degrees and I am happy. Life in flipflops and summer dresses is the ideal for me. I have no clue how I could have been born in Scotland, a country that is winter…most of the year!!
6. What is the main focus of your blog and why?
To write about my travel experiences and share them with others as well as having the ability to keep an online diary for myself to look back on. People, places and memories all get forgotten so I want to try preserve them whilst they are still fresh. I have also worked overseas as a Holiday Rep and Resort Manager for years and I enjoy sharing my experiences of a lifestyle that is intriguing to some and a memory for those who have also shared similar experiences.
7. If you could change one thing in this world what would it be?
This is a biggie! The obvious answer is world peace but that is very much a miss world answer and such a big, big dream. I wish the Euro currency never existed. I know it is great to have a European wide currency used in a variety of countries but I do believe the financial economy in many places would be much better if it had never been created.
8. Given the choice which holiday would you prefer; city break, beach break or adventure holiday?
Beach break but I enjoy visiting places with a lot of history and culture too. I like to learn about the countries I visit and experience as much as possible on my travels. I need some adventure days too and love to walk around and explore new countries.
9. Favourite animal?
Panda and Zebra. I really want to go to the see Panda’s in the sanctuary in China. From a pet perspective I love dogs, nothing massive just a nice cuddle size 🙂 I am currently pet fostering for some cats.
10. If you could chose to live the life of anyone for one day who would you be and why?
Such a difficult question this one! I would love to experience life as a writer for Rough Guide/Lonely Planet but I would want it for a bit longer than a day. Imagine being paid to travel, take photographs and write about it all. Bet they get lots of freebies too from the locals. They are living the dream! 🙂
11. Why did you start blogging?
I started to blog as I was between jobs, had free time on my hands and after reading a few other travel blogs thought why not. I travel too! It took me a while to get into posting regularly and I am now trying to post at least once a week, sometimes twice.I would love to increase the amount of readers to my posts as sometimes the posts you love no one seems to read 😦
