Nina’s Questions

1. What is your favorite season and why? Nothing beats New England in the Fall. The air becomes crisp, the leaves change color, and the air is filled with the scent of apples, bonfires, and freshly fallen trees.

2.  When did you learn to drive? In high school! 🙂

3.  What is your favorite book and why? This is so hard because I love reading. However, the Chronicles of Narnia – The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is one of my all-time favorites.

4.  How long have you been blogging for? I’ve been blogging on-and-off since 2018, but consistently on The Newbury Girl since February 2018.

5. Do you prefer tea or coffee or neither? Iced coffee – all year round! I’ve never been a big tea drinker, but I wish I liked it more.

6. How many siblings do you have? One older sibling.

7. Where do you live? In the northeast, united states. I love getting to experience all four seasons to the fullest extent and although sometimes too blunt, I love how direct New Englanders’ can be.

8. What is your favorite place you have visited? Sydney, Australia. Not only was the weather beautiful, but everyone I met was friendly and I loved the laidback daily culture.

9. When is your next holiday and where? I’m hoping that my next trip will be in Toronto, Canada. I’ve never been there (or anywhere in Canada) before. Every photo of the city looks stunning I’ve seen looks stunning.

However, since that trip is still pending, I’ll mention my last trip, New York. I’m always visiting New York City since so many of my friends are there. Also, there is always something to do and something interesting to see no matter what borough you’re exploring..
