50 Random Facts About Me

50 Random Facts About Me

Am I the only one who loves answering those “about me” sort of questionnaires? I thought this post would be the perfect opportunity to do the same thing, only, on my own terms. πŸ˜‰ I realized lately that I have not revealed that much about myself on this blog ever since I’ve startedΒ A Wanderer’s Adventures. I’m a bit more open on social media, but even there I’m not that open. I realized that not that many of you actually know me that well, and I thought this tag was the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the blogger behing the blog! So, buckle up because you’re in for 50 facts about me!

  • I love reading posts like this, I have never done a fact post myself but I think that needs to change. Fall is definitely my favourite season too, I love cosy nights at home (with a hot chocolate!) and I enjoy the mild temperatures. I would love to be bilingual, I am currently living in France to learn the language. xx


    • There’s nothing I would enjoy more than a cosy night in with a hot chocolate! πŸ™‚ And you live in France? How amazing! I’ve always wanted to visit! (I live in Quebec)
      Glad you enjoy this post! πŸ™‚
