Blogging Friends Forever

I have received this "Blogging Friends Forever" award from Randi from Trondheim.

Dear Randi, I thank you so very much for your kindness and I am so happy that you have thought of me! Thank you for your friendship!
I love your beautiful blog and so it is not hard for me to visit you regularly and say hallo! :)

Randi tought me the rules of the award:

1. Only 5 people allowed.
2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. one has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. you must link back to whoever gave you the award.Quite simple really it is a way of saying thank you to those who take time out for wonderful comments to boost your day.

As I love travelling but am not yet able to beam myself to any place in no time like Scotty did, I have to compensate my "travel bug" with blogging. This is represented in my choice of new blogger friends:

I want to pass on this award to:

1) Mary Beth for being a true blogger friend and for enjoying me with her Small City Scenes of Standwood! It is with Mary Beth that I travel to the Northwest of the USA, Washington, live on her farm with horses and dogs, visit horse races or hike in the beautiful mountains around!
2) Elizabeth who shows me the most beautiful places in Marrakech and in New York and who satisfies my need of beauty and colours and peaceful atmosphere ! And who does not forget to ask for my little dog D'Ora who was bitten by a viper once but has recoverd.
3) Titania who comes to visit me from the subtropical Currumbin Valley in Australia, shares with me her wonderful garden, and accompanies me on my strolls in Vienna!
4) Marie Reed, a passionate postcard merchant from the Burgundy region in France who shows the most extravagant vintage postcards on her blog and who regularly comes over to Vienna to practice her German (in a virtual sense)!
5) Ayamlin, a young Japanese woman from Tokyo with her blog "a comfortable vacation" whom I only know since last week when she came on my blog and who is so sweet and nice that I am happy that she has offered me her friendship.

I wish you much pleasure when you pass on your award!

So long, hugs, Maria.

I hope to make many more visits to you and your wonderful city you describe so well with your photo skills. Please be patient with me it might take me a while to put my act together.
