Happy New Year, and welcome to this week’s edition of Faraway Files. So far, 2018 is off to a great start! Only two weeks into the New Year, and I’ve already got one mini trip under my belt. Plans for two more mini trips are shaping up nicely, but I still haven’t decided on a big ticket destination for 2018. Of course for inspiration I need look no further than Faraway Files and the many adventures shared by all of you from around the world.
I don’t know about you, but this year seemed to fly by! Like any year there were ups and there were downs, but I’m happy to say it was mostly ups! As far as travel is concerned I wasn’t sure I’d ever beat 2016, but with trips to, New Orleans, the American Southwest, and London not to mention road trips throughout California, and extensive exploration of Los Angeles I would say 2017 definitely gave it a run for it’s money.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Faraway Files a fabulous travel blogging community where people from all over the world share their travel tips, inspiration and adventures! I think of it as the modern day form of having a pen pal(s)!
I’m excited to be to be using our new Faraway Files logo, which includes Corey and I, for the first time!
What’s my favorite thing about living in a popular vacation destination? The number of visitors! I absolutely love it when friends and family come to visit (hint, hint), and not only do I love their company, but it’s the perfect opportunity to be a tourist in my own town! Bonus: All those delicious meals together!
