Should I feel honoured?
We’ve been selected for a Tripbase award for …
… providing one of the best Walking/Backpacking-related blogs out there. …
We feel your blog is an excellent example of what a blog should be and trust that you feel proud in this respect. We congratulate you on your achievement and are providing you with a badge to display proudly at your own discretion on your blog as a sign that you are in the top echelons of the blogosphere. …
We were selected in a 10-way-tie for 11th place. (Not exactly the top of the podium.)

Unfortunately, Tripbase has combined hiking blogs with backpacking blogs. This award winner: Students in Europe truly has nothing to do with what Tom Mangan writes about, hiking.
I won’t get too excited about my 11th place (tie) ranking until Tripbase separates hiking from backpacking.
I’ll exercise discretion.
