Faraway Files #69

Spring is officially here, or at least the calendar says so, and the flowers here in LA think so too. Everything is blooming like mad, and the air outside smells heavenly like a florist shop, so it’s hard to believe we’re expecting the “storm of the season.”  Angelenos are famous for overreacting where weather is concerned, but this time it might just be a big deal.

Should this turn out to be the case, I’m going to light a fire, cozy up, and enjoy reading about all of your travel adventures in this week’s edition of Faraway Files. Clare is hosting this week!

A cozy fire is the perfect place to wait out the storm

Spring may be here, but I’m still reliving the memories from our winter holidays in, and around London, so I’ll be sharing my Tale of Two Christmases. I know I’m out of season here, but both experiences were so unexpectedly magical, that I just couldn’t wait unit next year’s festive season to share them with all of you.

Welcome to Faraway Files, the travel link up hosted by Erin from Oregon Girl around the World, Katy from Untold Morsels, Corey from Fifi + Hop, Hilary from Hilarystyle and Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles.

This is the place to link up your travel posts every Thursday. Faraway Files is a weekly file of the best travel ideas on the web. We want to dream of faraway places, to make new travel plans and share our travel secrets. Inspire us to travel to places we’ve never considered before or revisit a place we thought we knew. We know that you can feel faraway even when you’re close to home, so share your experiences of travels near and far wherever you are in the world.

We love our link up and the supportive community we’ve created. If you join in, please reciprocate and comment on the hosts’ posts as well as any others that take your eye. If we see a pattern of people not joining in, we have decided that it’s fairest to all of us to remove the links of those posters.

So let’s inspire and share each other’s posts. We’ll try to read and comment on every post and we’ll share them on social media too. Each week we’ll choose our favourites and highlight them on our blogs and social media channels using #FarawayFiles.

How it works:

  • Link up one travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge onto the post or your blog (code below) or link back to the hosts.
  • The link up will go live every Thursday at 8am, UK time, until midnight on Friday. It will alternate between Untold Morsels, Suitcases and Sandcastles, Fifi + Hop, HilaryStyle and Oregon Girl around the World. This week’s link up is right here.
  • Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on all of the marked hosts’ posts and at least one other.
  • Tweet us your posts (@suitandsand, @UntoldMorsels, @oregongirlworld @fifiandhop @hilarystyleme) using the hashtag #FarawayFiles and we’ll retweet to our followers.
  • Love Instagram? Share your favourite photos from your posts with us, tagging #FarawayFiles and we’ll add our favourites to our Faraway Files Instagram feed.
  • Check out our Faraway Files Facebook page too.
