Faraway Files #81

Summer break has finally arrived, and here in Southern California tourist season is in full swing. Did you know that according to the LA Tourism and Convention board 48.3 million tourists visited LA in 2017?! That’s a lot of visitors, and all of them are eating, but where?

Eating is one of travels greatest joys, but it can also be one of the most frustrating. How do you avoid the more touristy establishments and pinpoint the best places. You’re in luck if you plan on visiting Los Angeles because I’ve got you covered, and I’ll be sharing some of my favorite LA eating establishments with you on this week’s edition of Faraway Files.

Katy and Erin hosted last week, and Katy’s favorites were:

Day trip to Sant Cugat del Valles by Cultural Wednesday
Cloisers Sant Cugat Manastery
Snapshots from San Marino by Red phone booth

 Europe by Campervan by Adventure and Sunshine


Street Art in Montreal by Dotted Line travels
 Phlegm - 2013

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.

Don’t forget to comment on the hosts’ posts as well as any others that catch your eye. The more links you read and share the more fun and successful our community will be, so please join in.

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.
