My friend Aanchal at http://travelfunfoodpictures.com/ has nominated my blog for this award. I am always grateful for bloggers liking talealongtheway, and I like to encourage other bloggers by nominating them. WordPress is a family for all of us.
Now a little about Aanchal, who is an IT professional and integration architect in London. She works hard to be able to travel on weekend excursions which can be as rewarding as longer holidays. I am very pleased since my blog is mainly about my travels. Aanchal is one of the many bloggers who overcomes adversity in life. She daily must conqueror OCD and claustrophobia, just to leave her home and enter the world. Most of us just take our lives for granted, but Aanchal takes each day as a gift. My admiration to you , my friend. Thank you for the nomination.

7 facts about me: (Since I have done this several times, I am altering this a bit and writing a paragraph.)
8 and 9 year olds love to look at maps. It is the first time they realize that there is a big diverse world out there beyond their home, school, and city. For various reasons, I had a half and hour each day of enrichment for third graders. I thought it a wonderful opportunity to share my discovery of the ancient world. Using the internet for research, the kids learned to write their name in the ancient languages, learn history, read ODYSSEUS in an abridged edition, construct ziggerats, pyramids, and the Parthenon. As an end of the year culminating activity , each dressed as an ancient person or object ( Corinthian Column) for a Living Museum. In turn they would entertain me with tales of growing up in Arizona with rattlesnakes, bob cats perched on a cactus, scorpions, and tarantellas. But the stories didn’t begin until the testing was finished for the year, of course!
Here are my nominees for the Versatile Blogger Award. Check them out!
Congratulations to you all!
