Welcome to Faraway Files a weekly travel link up! I’m particularly excited about this week because I’ll not only be joining up, but I’ll also be co-hosting this amazing travel community along with Erin from Oregon Girl around the World, Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles, and Corey from Fifi & Hop. I discovered the Faraway Files travel blogging community around week four and have been faithfully contributing each week since.
In our house we love any excuse to celebrate, and its even better if dressing up is involved, which is why Halloween is one of my favorite days of the year! Lucky for me Los Angeles is a Halloween loving town, and there is plenty of opportunity! Whether you want to get fully decked out, or just come as you are, there is something for everyone.
I’ve been happily planning our family’s next big trip and I’m pretty excited about it! After a year of dreaming, pinning, reading blogs, and saving some instagood ideas I’ve finally booked my flights and accommodations! I’ve been booking tickets and tours, researching day trips, and making plans… secure in the knowledge that even with the most careful and organized planning I won’t get to do all of it… something will go wrong.
If there was a main destination on our epic 2000+ mile road trip through the American Southwest it was Monument Valley, which is located on the border between Utah, and Arizona. Believe it or not my inspiration for this mega adventure came after riding Soarin’ Over The World a ride inside Disneyland’s California Adventure Park. And why not? Inspiration can come from anywhere.
I’ve been inspired by all the mouthwatering photos of food I’ve been seeing online lately, but with literally thousands of delicious choices right here in my home town of LA, and limited time to eat out, my list of must try places was growing long. A plan was in order and I decided a food tour was the perfect answer!
